History of Our Club
Our club was started over 35 years
ago and has had various flying sites over the years. We have had the current
field since 1996 and have been working on improving it a little at a time. By
far the biggest improvement was when we put in the paved runway. The club
membership includes local flyers plus many winter visitors who enjoy the
usually great year-round flying weather. Locked Gated Access to RC Field and we
are proud of our weather. Itís great to be able to fly RC without restrictions
24/7 Day or Night. We Float Fly at Mittry Lake, main
boat launch on Tuesday morning, Sun rise - 10AM.
Our RC Field is now renamed in honor
of John Contreras.
Our club meetings are held at the
field, Oct. - Apr. second Sunday, 2PM West side of field.
