Boerne Area Modelers Fly-In

by Ed Valls   November 13, 2015

On September 19, I had the pleasure of attending the BAMS (Boerne Area Model Society) Fly-In. The event drew about 30 pilots with a variety of different types of models and was quite successful. The Fly-In benefitted the Kendall County, TX. Animal Shelter. Pilot registration "fees" were a donation of some dog or cat food or to make a financial donation.

The event had a large number of youngsters who spent quite a lot of time asking questions about the models. The BAMS club provided a number of items for the pilots raffle. Additionally, during various times of the day the BAMS club members offered "buddy box" flight instruction to many of the non pilot spectators (many of whom were youngsters). During the day the club also had a couple of candy drops for all of the youngsters.

The event was quite a success and the club was able to donate about 600 lbs. of dog/cat food and also donated some money to the shelter.

Hats off to all the members of the Boerne Area Model Society for hosting this wonderful event.
