In June I attended a Electric fun fly in Farmington New Mexico. The San Juan Radio Control Club has this event every June. It is a real laid back fun time. Lots of flying and stories of flying, some true and some maybe not. Ha. They had 16 pilots shooting holes in the sky. There was a pot luck dinner on Saturday.

This is a real fun event to come to. The club will treat you as a member and help in any way. The main goal is to just have fun. Keep this event in mind for next year, it will be electrifying.

The Arkansas Sky Tigers hosted the 40ish Annual Small Model Airplane Lovers League fun fly at their club field as always on the first weekend in June.  If you have never been to this event, you are missing out on a great one!  All aspects of our Hobby and some unbelievable flying machines are flown. Mark this one on your Calander, I promise you won’t be disappointed!!

It was a great day at the War Birds over Texas City Fly In and Swap Meet hosted by the Texas City RC Club.  President Vince Hoechten was the CD also, and he ran a great show.  The club has very nice facilities including a beautiful grass runway, air conditioned club house with a kitchen, and permanent restrooms.  There were many fine war birds entered with about 20 registered pilots, and they provided wonderful entertainment.  There were also many prizes in the drawings and raffle.  Congratulations to the Texas City RC Club for providing another great event.
