The Model Aviators of South Arkansas hosted a swap meet on February 5th at a new location with lots more room.
The weather was still icy in central Arkansas but was nice in Eldorado. A special thanks to all of the Eldorado club members who helped put this on!!

Great News. The Albuquerque Radio Control Club is hosting a Jet fly in. They did this two years ago and had a blast. Last year was cancelled because of the virus. BOO. So, the event is back this year. Come out to Albuquerque and fly your jets or, just come and watch. It will be fun.

Treasure. Today I was at the ARCC swap meet in Albuquerque. Les Beason was the man in charge and did a great job. There was lots of treasure to be had. A bunch of sellers showed up and soon the buyer or lookers were on hand to get a deal. Les has a Balsa USA DH4 that was built by Mr. Adams. It is an outstanding plane. He tried and tried to sell it. I might end up with it, have no idea where to put it.
The weather was hot. It got hotter before we left. It is always fun to come to these events. The knowledge from some of the older old timers is priceless.
Join a local club, join the AMA and go fly something.

Got this from the Rio Rancho Radio Control Club.
Secretary Rio Rancho RC Flyers
July 4th, Rio Rancho RC Fliers held their annual Family Day. The club hosts this event and invites Rio Rancho RC Families, families of people living near the field and the Mayor of Rio Rancho, NM. This year we had 36 people attending the vent and were served a great BBQ of Burgers, Dogs and all the Fixins’. Greg Hull the Mayor of Rio Rancho stopped out to visit, had a Dog and some great conversations with almost everyone in attendance. Greg is a hands on Mayor who loves visiting with the electorate in the city and this was no exception. Food was provided by Rio Rancho RC, cooking by Don McClelland and Ken French ! ! Dons’ wife Ruth has been doing the shopping for Family Day since 2014 which was the starting year for this club event. The club held a raffle with quite a number of planes as prizes ! !

Rio Rancho Radio Control Club( RRRCC) held their swap meet June 19th. There was plenty of treasure to be had. Don McClelland, club president was the man in charge. He did great. The weather was nice and cool. The turn out was really great. I was glad to be there. Howard and I got a little lost on the way. Any farther and we may have had to get a work visa. I don’t know how much was traded or sold. The main thing to me was getting together and talking airplanes. After all, that’s what we do best.
Join a club and the AMA and go build something.

Greetings from sunny warm Albuquerque. The winds were light and the sun was shinning. There a good group of flyers out this morning. Tim, Paul and Baylor came down from Farmington NM to maiden a few planes. While I was there , Tim flew 2 of the 4 planes he brought to maiden. He did very well. The planes did what he wanted and stayed in on piece.
Mark, Marlin, and Norm did some formation flying with their jets. They did a great job. With all 3 planes being the same, you had to watch real close to make sure you were flying your plane. Sure looked like a lot of fun.
This was a pretty normal day here in Albuquerque for this time of year. It was a good day of flying and hanger talk. You can learn a lot listening to some of these guys.
Go out to your local field, join a club and the AMA and get to flying.

Howdy from sunny Albuquerque. Last summer ARCC got together for a club meeting and auction. The auction was for Stan Johnson’s son. He was sick and needed some help. The club members brought some planes out and we auctioned them off. After all was said and done, we raised 3 or 4 hundred dollars.
This is one reason to join a club. A good club becomes like family. A place to go and learn new stuff about planes and to help others in need. You can’t get that flying by yourself. So join your local club and the AMA.
Some time after this meeting Stan’s son passed away. I watched this young man grow up. He was a good man. Mark will be missed by all who knew him.

|Un-swap meet? What is it? ARCC had a Un-swap meet last Saturday. Les Beason came up with this idea. The stuff you have left after a swap meet just takes up space in your work shop. An un-swap meet was designed to get rid of that stuff. Here is how it works. Fill up a box with stuff, mark the box with the contents and seal the box. You can’t look in the box. Just pick a box or two and take it home. It could be anything.
The turn out was light. Everything was taken. One man took almost all of it. It was fun and a little weird. I hope we do it again.
It was a great day of flying too. A little cold to start and then it got nice. I got in a couple flights and then called it a day.
If you get a chance, try a un-swap meet sometime. It will make you laugh.
