Hi from Albuquerque. A month or so ago I attended two events in one weekend. On Saturday I went up to Farmington NM for the San Juan Radio control Club’s electric fly in. It was a blast. There were about 20 pilots and the flew a lot. There was a contest or two with a few guys trying them. All in all it was a real fun time.
On Sunday I went to ARCC’s scale meet. I don’t know how many pilots. I think there was about 25 or more. Flying was great. The weather was warm and light winds. Harry and James did an excellent job. I hope they do this again next year.

One of the best Swapmeet in the Dallas area was this past 19 of August of 2023 at Allen High School Cafeteria. This event brought people all over the District VII to sell and buy some very nice airplanes and cant forget also the wifes which also had some Bling Bling. So as you can see if you miss this event you need to plan for next year to come and participate OH and don’t forget the amazing Auction which was a lot of fun. Saw some great airplanes been sold and the people all very friendly. Just remember to mark this event on you calendar as one to attend next year. Great job from the Richardson Club and there members to put such a outstanding event and the organization was amazing. So hope to see you there next year.

On May 20,2023 The Rockwall Sport Flyers Club setup a Booth at the Rockwall Founders Day at the Henry Myers Park. The event had Music, food, vendors, Kids area and different booth. The club booth was always busy with adults and kids trying the flight simulator and asking a lot of question about the airplane in display and where can they learn how to fly radio control and location of the field. The looks on kids when they saw some of the model been display was incredible and there eyes said all. Thank you the Club President Tommy Baugh for invitation me to participate on this activity and the members of the club present Robert Short and Lawrence Powell who is one the newest and youngest member of the club and also a good flyer. Well this all for now keep on flying and promoting this great Hobby.

Aeromodelers of Acadiana (AOA) hosted a surprise congratulatory party for Jase Dussia after his impressive win at the FRENCH EXTREME FLIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP 2022. It was a rainy day but that didn’t dampen the spirits of his friends and supporters at AOA. It’s truly amazing to watch him fly and he even braved the rain to show off his skills. Jase recently south to abandon the winters of Michigan and enjoy more fling time in Louisiana.

I recently had a chance to work with the Local E A A Chapter 165 in which I was a past President. I set up my Stearman bipe so the scouts could see which controls on the aircraft controlled the pitch, roll & yaw.
