Fly-In
DFW Area 114th Toy Drive Flyin Sat Dec 8, 2012

On Saturday, December 8, the 114th RC Aero Squadron will once again be holding our annual fly-in to benefit the Grapevine Police Department Santa Cops Program.

A map to the club field can be found at http://tinyurl.com/5d9g2t

and more information will be available at the 114th's web site http://114thrc.org/

The club’s Grapevine field has a large grass runway and electrical outlets in the pit area.

It will be a low-key event strictly for fun. All types of aircraft are welcome. We start about 9 AM and run until we quit. The toys will be presented to the police at 11:00. The best part is … the admission for this event is ONE NEW UNWRAPPED TOY which will be donated to the Grapevine Police Department Toy Drive. This is such a good cause and so relevant to the spirit of the Holiday Season that you should consider donating a toy or two even if you don’t intend to fly at the event. You will brighten the spirits of some less fortunate children and lift your spirits as well. This is an event that you should not miss.

There will be snacks and drinks during the day. If the weather is good a few brave souls may even stick around for some night flying.

I hope to see you there!

I'm glad to hear your planning to come. This is always a great event for the kids and often a really good day of flying too.

GWH, hope you folks don't mind, but that day is the normal DEAF meeting so we decided to move the meeting to Santa Cops. Hopefully, we get a decent turnout for the meeting and the guys bring some toys, stay and do some flying.
