Horizons new Field

The first flight off the Horizon City Flyers new field. 4 years of work finally pays off. Had a work day to get started on the shade. Thank God for members with equipment. Got our concrete poured for the shade. I had no idea jut how much work it actually is. I'm getting way to old for this.

1-29-2012, we finished our shade and will back off for a bit while we replenish the clubs funds. Plans for the future are already in the works.

02-19-2012 we held a well attended Open house at the new field. it was a bit on the breezy side but still a lot of fun.

Not a tree or light pole anywhere in sight. Perfect.

How many members in the club?
Sure wish we had a field like that. I'm afraid we will never have one unless one of the club members wins the lottery and donates a chunk!

We were in the same shape. Any group of guys can get something like this going but it takes work and it helps if the club all backs the effort. I took us 5 years of begging and holding events to raise the money. You have to start somewhere plant the seed at your next meeting.

If you don't mind me asking...
what type of events did you hold?
I have thought about 4-wheeler/snowmobile raffles. Food sales at events. I am trying to come up with some ideas for the club.

thanks
Neil

Not at all. Check our website. We try and do 2 Charity events a year and several big fly-ins. Then toss in a few Fun Flys just to keep it intresting

http://www.horizoncityrcflyers.com/

Go to Danny's videos ( there's a bunch so bear with it) and Photos. We have a great time here with a bunch of very supportive people. If there's anything I can do to help you or any info you may need please feel free to ask. There ( with any luck) should be a article in the AMA mag down the road about the building of our field to help inspire others never to give up.
