“The Fresno Radio Modelers are Alive and Well, and Flying Still at Avenue 12”
Wow, what a month. Just when you thought things couldn’t get any better, we had a great time for the month of September. Cooler mornings, light wind and lots of fliers at the field. There is not a shortage of new building projects. Lots of new planes to fly. There was the joy of success and the sadness of defeat. You just can’t get this kind of entertainment anywhere else. If you’re not flying, you’re missing out.
The War Birds event was a huge success. We had some nice war birds and plenty of participation. This year we teamed up with the V-8 Car Club. Not too many cars, but the ones they brought were nice. We sold out on all the snack foods and hamburgers. We even got Brock our farmer neighbor to donate his water truck (which was a huge ball of water) to water our driveway. His worker went way beyond his duty to help us keep the dust down. I want to personally congratulate Craig Roberts for all his efforts and Ideas for making it all happen. Another successful event, even financially. I’m sure this will be the start of a bigger event for next year.
Our next business meeting should be a good time to find out all that is happening at the field and how we are moving forward with the club. Here are some of the issues we will be bringing up. Incorporating the Club, the Madera Club issues, the IMAC flying dilemma and nominations for 2019 positions. You don’t want to miss a thing. We will also have a great raffle.
Our next event is the Swap Meet at the flying field. On October 27and starts at 9:00am (come early). Clean out your garage and storage bins. Make room for newer and better planes. Plus our next fun meeting is night flying at the field. Call Bobby Arriaga for details on both events (559-790-4512).
If you get a chance, give Bobby a pat on his back for all his hard work this year. Especially for running the snack bar at the War Birds event. We got great feed back on how good the hamburgers were. Some times we forget all the work that goes on behind the scene.
I look forward to seeing you at our next business meetings. Your voice and vote does count. I appreciate everyone who volunteered at making the month of September a great month. All your help shows our club is exciting and going strong. It’s nice to be part of an awesome club.
Keep flying and always happy landings.

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.
