Cookout Recap


The cookout Saturday was a great time. Around 20 folks turned out for flying and hotdogs. Thanks to the Montgomery County RC Club for the combat demonstration. Several hearty souls stayed after dark for night flying. Thanks to everyone who came out and made this day possible.

Glad everyone had a good time on 7-9-11, hope we can do that again. For now the heat is the problem just to hot during the mid day sun. The field looks better than ever thanks to the efforts of our members. I hear a member has a new Raptor 30, can't waite to see it this weekend.

You didn't miss anything. It was hot and threatened storms all day. We gave up and left about 5pm. I will be glad when the heat wave ends.
