PCRC is planning on having Streamer Combat event/events this summer. We will be using Flite Test Bloody Baron planes like the one below - some details are still being worked on, but because of our busy schedule with the "move", it was decided to start out just within our club and have some "just fun" events.  Send your suggestions and/or ideas to Ron Hayward xhayward@msn.com
 & Jim Flick mijfcflick1@yahoo.com
 
Thanks to Doug at House of Hobbies, we have had two build sessions to build our Bloody Baron planes. We'll soon be cutting and rolling the streamers and making plans for the upcoming combat events this summer.
More details later

Randy Prepping the Flybaby

The Pig Roast and Fun Fly we held on August 27th, 2016 was a great success despite a day that started out looking like it would be very wet. However, by 11am it started drying out and the rest of the day was dry and conducive to the festivities. See a couple of pictures below. The parking lot was full, and everyone enjoyed  a wonderful roast dinner.

The Dale Randles Memorial Fun Fly and Tailgate Sale was a great success!  Great turnout, near perfect weather, delicious food and a huge amount of fun. Special thanks to David Kling for providing new pilot training to several individuals and for providing lunch entertainment in the form of an awe inspiring flight demonstration.

Below are a few photos of the days events:
