DFW Area December 8, 2007 114th RC Aero Squadron and DEAF

On Saturday, December 8, 114th RC Aero Squadron and DEAF will once again be combining forces at the 114th's field for the fourth annual fly-in to benefit the kids.

A map to the club field can be found at

and more information will be available at the 114th's web site

The clubís Grapevine field has a large grass runway and electrical outlets in the pit area. We are also planning have a raffle this year to further assist the Toy Drive.

Once again we will be hosting this very special Fun Fly in conjunction with our friends with D.E.A.F. (Dallas Electric Aircraft Fliers). It will be a low-key event strictly for fun. All types of aircraft are welcome. The date is Saturday, December 8th starting at 9 AM and running 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. This year our goal is to require a second police car to haul off all of the toys! 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 soles may even stick around for some night flying.

I hope to see you there!

We are approaching local merchants as well as RC suppliers for raffle items and so far there has been interest in supporting the raffle.

Here is a flyer and a map to the field. Feel free to print them and hand them out to your friends at the next club meeting.

Getting closer to the event. Go ahead and collect your toys to bring as a landing fee. This will help some less fortunate child have a Merry Christmas.

Well it appears we will be moving into our new house that weekend, so I am probably not going to make it. I was looking forward to flying with you guys from D town again. I had a blast at DEAF and BEST. I hope you have a great turnout!!

Patrick from Xcite here,

Xcite battery is thankful for the invite and will definitely be at this event with some product to contribute as well. I will have some demo batteries to use from my fresh batch that is arriving this week and will display the new A-6 charger that Mike's hobby shop will be carrying soon. Can't wait to go and I look forward to seeing everyone.

Best regards
