Our major annual event, Rivertown Days, is just around the corner. Please set aside the day, or as much of the day as you can, to spend at the field. We need members to fly airplanes, visit with spectators, display their planes and assist other members when flying.
2019 Building Contest

Stanton Airport Squadron CAP
Wayne E., Larry M. and Duane J. are part of a committee to prepare and make a presentation to the CAP Squadron at Stanton Airport. Information I received from the AMA has been forwarded to Wayne and he has the contact information at the airport. Members may be asked to provide their time or models to make this a successful venture. If asked, please make every effort to assist.
Rivertown Days 2019
Our annual Rivertown Days flying demonstration will be held on Saturday, July 20th from 10:00 AM until 3:30 PM. This is our only public event of the year and participation of all members is encouraged.
We do this event annually to showcase our hobby and Club. All members should consider bringing airplanes to fly and/or display. Any type of RC is welcomed, fixed wing, sailplane, helicopter, multi-rotor, electric, gas or glow. All RC pilots, no matter their Club affiliation, are welcome as long as they are AMA members.
It was my plan, and my hope, that we could revive aerial combat during this event. There are several members who purchased Bloody Baron electric planes from Flite Test. I hope they all can participate for the majority of the day.
Mike will be offering introductory flights to spectators, and will require assistance. Roger’s family will be offering food and beverages again, with profits to be donated to the Animal Ark.
Participants will be provided food and beverage coupons compliments of the Club as we have done the past few years.

I want to remind everyone that there can be no flight operations during set-up and tear-down.
