Omahawk's Benson Competition Day


















Omahawk's Annual Benson High School Competition Day was held on Saturday April 14th, at
Benson High School from 8:00 AM to 12:00 PM.  Activities included competitions between Omaha area junior high school students in CO2 car races, toothpick tower building, electric hovercraft building and rubber powered stick and tissue airplane flying. This event has been sponsored for many years by the Omahawks and the Omaha Corvette Club. The Omahawks are once again sponsoring the flying portion of the competition. There was a static display of R/C aircraft and prizes were given to the top performers in the two different glider classes.  Flying Demos included several helicopters flown by Skip Brown and two others plus an IFO flown by Keith Paskewitz and a scale Demoiselle Flown by Galen Lillethorup.

      I publish Metro Area R/C Flying to make a central web site for all the area R/C clubs, not to replace individual club sites, but to tie all of them together and promote growth and interaction between clubs. The most important service of the web site is to post the Metro Area Schedule. The schedule lists all the events for all the clubs in one location so that R/C flyers can see what events are available in the area and plan ahead. I believe it will also help the area clubs to work out their schedules so that a club event, will not conflict, with another club's event. The next most important service is to provide a Page that has maps to all the events, meetings, dinners and parties. Right after that comes the Newsletter Page which lists club newsletters. Reading other club newsletters lets members see what others are offering in the area that they are interested in and promotes interaction between clubs.  This is your web site, if you would like to show-off your newest plane, or share an experience, you can E-Mail pictures and articles to me at:  There’s an Email Link on every page.
