September 9th Fun Fly

Screenshot 2023-08-07 at 9.28.10 AM

Sept 9th at 9:30am there will be a contest conducted at Bob Gizzie Memorial R/C Flying Field. It is a ‘fun fly’ type contest and focused on just that…having fun with radio controlled aircraft. IT IS FREE to all who want to participate. This contest will be open to all AMA members in the area, so it will be an opportunity to promote our club! The nature of the contest is such that no specific plane type should have a great advantage versus another and the contest will be managed in such a way that piloting skills will not be an automatic win either. Let us say, there is as element of chance built in…like a poker card game.

All to say that unless you have a seriously urgent commitment that keeps you from it, you should be at Bob Gizzie field with an airplane ready to fly and enjoy being in the company of many others that enjoy flying for fun. The contest starts promptly at 9:30am and we hope to be done with the contest by 1pm – be there and be ready to play and fellowship!

Contest will be directed by Rich Taylor, Wayne Nenninger and Dan Morrison…for those that know us, that’s your first clue that this is not going to be an ordinary outing…See you there!

In the Shop with Wayne

During the racing days of Warbirds in St. Louis I had a practice racer that I flew constantly doing laps and making left hand turns. It was a modified Jemco fun scale Mustang that was modified with a sheeted wing and had an OS .40 Rear exhaust engine and a Macs Muffler. It was done in the race colors of Leroy Penhalls #81 Reno racer from 1969-70.
