“The Fresno Radio Modelers are Alive and Well, and Still Flying at Avenue 12”
It’s perfect weather and excellent wind conditions for flying. Due to all the help we received and Pizza from OB, the tarp went up smoothly and we now have a nice shade to enjoy our hobby.
Our first Fun Fly Fund Raiser: Deck Flight – The Eagle has Landed was a huge success. With just a handful of pilots, we were able to raise a significant amount of funds for promoting our club. Plus we had a great time. It’s been a long time since I heard so much laughter at the field and the Pot Luck food was excellent. Come to the business meeting to hear all the details.
This month’s meeting should be exciting. I will talk about the latest information on incorporating the club, what it takes to move our club forward, looking into getting a bus to the New AMA Convention in Pomona on November 3rd (we need about 40 members to participate), new business and old business ideas. Plus I’m still working on getting free admission to Millerton Lake for our float flys. With the help of the State Park Rangers, I’ve come up with a great idea on how to do it.
Once again, I’ve been flying on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays. I invite you to come on out and enjoy our field. Dale Grant our new Field Chairman is doing a great job of keeping the field clean. Bob Starrguard and Jesse Ruiz have been keeping the weeds down. We have had new visitors almost every time I’m there and they say “what a nice field you have”. Thank you, to all the members who help directly and indirectly. Give these guys a pat on the back. Believe me, they deserve it.
Fly safe and stay happy,
FRM El Presidente
Our objectives are foremost on having fun, skill development; while, respecting the safety needs inherent with any flying aircraft.
We generally fly everyday, but consistently on Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday. We welcome all newcomers to the model aviation hobby as well as experienced flyers. If you want to learn to fly, contact via email one of our club leaders who can connect you with an instructor pilot. No plane – no worries, we can provide an intro training flight and help you get a feel for the controls.
