Kid’s Day was a huge success with 102 “kids” taking a turn at flying an RC aircraft. Thanks to all the flight instructors and club members that helped make this event possible. And thanks to all the “kids” that came out to fly.
Love Air RC will again be hosting one of the nation’s best warbirds events with over 140 pilots and many, many great aircraft at Drake Field east of Ft Collins CO. In case you are a first time flyer at this event, the runway is 800 ft. x 70 ft wide and there are no obstructions.
This event is designed especially for the warbird pilot. The landing fee $50.00. All aircraft must have been used in the military and be in military paint schemes. Aircraft of any scale, including arfs, are welcome. This means lots of open flying without interference from flying lawn mowers or 3D planes. The noon will feature fly-bys by a full scale Seafury and AT-6; the pyro show will be even more spectacular and there are openings for big bombers and fighters to participate.
Thousands of dollars in R/C merchandise has been donated with most of it going to the pilots over the 3-day event. Some items will be sold at auction during the Saturday night banquet.
Famous Dave’s BBQ will be the official field food vendor for 2009. Friday night there will be an impromptu Famous Dave’s “Big Pig” dinner on the field; tickets are $20.00.
The banquet on Saturday night will be held at the Lory Student Union, at Colorado State University. The sit down dinner features prime rib, salmon or a vegetarian option with all the fixings, soft drink and dessert. Cost is $35 per person. A no host bar will also be available. The banquet will be both entertaining and full of surprises. The guest speaker, a highly decorated ace from WW II Ace, will provide an entertaining, informative talk. Banquet tickets are available on-line or by mail; a limited number of tickets will be available at the field. Please buy your tickets early as seating is limited.

From Bob Bergin:
Well it is the new year and that means our 6th Model Expo is coming up. It will be held on Feb 27th from 10:00am to 4:00pm at the Wings Over The Rockies Museum again. The door will be open at 7:00 am for all the clubs and Hobby stores to start their set ups. Weather permitting, we hope to have the B-52 cockpit open for viewing as the drawing factor for the public. We also have been working with Buckley Air Base to have a Blackhawk helo there for display. We are still waiting to hear from them. All the paper work is in.
MAS will once again have a club display. Members are invited to bring their airplanes or helicopters. Set up time is from 8:00 am to 9:00am. They are requesting that all models stay in place until 4:00pm.
