Omahawk's Youth Fun Fly




     Come join the fun at the Youth Fun Fly on June 7th at Hawk Field with your grandson, granddaughter or your kids. What the sponsors hope will be to start the young kids, under the age of fourteen, to begin to think about a fun hobby.

     Lunch will be available for all attending. Hot dogs, chips and drinks will be provided. And there is no landing fee assessment.

     Fred will purchase a couple “Yellow Bee electrics” to have at the event. These will be built and hopefully complete enough to fly before the end of the day. They
will be raffled for the kids to take

home with them. Other rubber band balsa planes will be given to all the participants.

     Bottom line for us is that while we got into the hobby for personal reasons we probably also saw it as a chance to connect with our grandkids/kids. And when
they come to the field and see others their age or younger flying and having a good time perhaps some of the reluctance to “crash Grandpas nice plane” will disappear.
     Those of us who have had the youngsters on a buddy box and yet had that nasty disaster
occur know that they can become hesitant to fly again.

     What is the saying? When you “fall off the horse” you get right back on. So lets meet up, enjoy some building, some hot dogs, some flying and some prizes. Most of all the smiles

when the kids accomplish something that seems simple to older people but very rewarding to the

      Buddy boxes are encouraged for safety reasons. Perhaps the club
trainers will be available for anyone who may be short equipment.
     See you the 27th!

      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.
