Cloudy Day in Albuquerque

Cloudy Day in Albuquerque

On January 24th I went to Maloof Memorial Park to fly. The day and night before it was raining. Wednesday morning the rain had stopped. It was warm for January and cloudy. There was about seven pilots out this morning. Most of the day we flew bright colored black planes. They were black due to no sun shine. I had a great time. We can fly all year round here in Albuquerque. It will get colder this winter but, we show up and freeze to get some flying in.  Come on summer.

Here is a picture of Ray Dukart, Brian Regan, Marlin Smith and Steve Wilcox. Ray is holding a plane that he flew for the first time. The maiden went great. He likes it.

First of all Sorry for the late post of this event but on Sept 10-11 the Greater Southwest Aero Modeler club put together and amazing event “Scale Master Qualifier” and Mr Lawrence was the Contest Director for this great event. This event brought people from all over Texas and also Louisiana and Oklahoma that came to this event to qualify for the scale master event. There where some beautiful airplane in this event and some great and amazing flyers that if you didn’t know that you where in a Radio control Air field you would have taught that you where looking at the real thing. The event was a great success but it takes a lot of people to have an event like this, so will like to take this time to say thank you to all those volunteers that gave there time on this event. If you didn’t make it this year for the event start planning for next year to come and enjoy and amazing field and great flying. again congratulation to all the winners and also to one special kid that flew his first qualifier for the first time and took First place in Youth class at 14 years old Lawrence Powell did some amazing flying and to see youth participate on this type of event is amazing to see. Also on the same line will like to also say congratulation to this young man for being select to represent District 8 next year at the AMA Camp in 2024.

Again Congratulations to all the winners on the different classes. Until next year hope to see everyone there again next year.

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.

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.
