Fly-In
DFW Area 114th Toy Drive Flyin Dec 4, 2011

On Sunday, December 4, 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 clubís 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 about 3:30 PM. The best part is Ö 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 donít 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!

So far we have Aero Hobbies in Lewisville and Roy's Hobblies in Hurst.

For those that want to fly but do not bring or a plane, I'll have my buddy box.

Well, I won't be able to fly in it as I have prior church commitments, but I will be there for about an hour and I will bring gifts as this so benefits the less fortunate kids in the Grapevine area.

Feathermerchant, tried to respond to your email, but it bounced back on us. Ralph sent the info out to all members, but most are not big into going to events. I can not make it as Sundays are not good. I see that Chris is planning on going depending on the weather. Hopefully, a couple more will show.

Hope the weather holds out and you folks have a nice day.

Ron

Looks like great flying weather in the forcast. Low winds, and reasonable temps. I may try to make it out from Azle.

Well the weather was not optimal but we had a great turnout considering. We managed to overfill one table with presents and also flew 2 officers and one officer's child on the buddy box. We just flew between the raindrops.
