Spring Open House: Jun 24th (Club field )

The Propsnappers RC Club, Academy of Model Aeronautics (AMA) Gold Leaders, Charter #871 proudly announces “Wings for Wishes” benefiting your “Make a Wish- Maine” program. This event will be held June 24th with a rain date of June 25th 2017 from 0900-1600 hrs. Our flying field is located off of Running Hill Rd. Scarborough. The field road name is Green St. but I believe that street has been decommissioned. There will be signs on Running Hill Rd. leading to our field. We will not be charging a fee for attendance, although saying that, we will be requesting a $20 landing fee donation for our pilots who wish to fly that day. We hold an annual Open House every year and have a plethora of experienced pilots joining us from this area. During the day there will announcements of our goal of collecting donations from anyone in spectator’s area. A donation jar will be placed on our food table for the “Wings for Wishes” program. Food will be provided by the Propsnappers RC Club. ALL monies collected that day will be donated to “Make a Wish- Maine” program. This is our third year doing a combined event donating $900 and $1000 respectively. Our event will be sanctioned with the AMA for appropriate insurance coverage and all pilots are required to be AMA and FAA members. I look forward to working with you and the “Make a Wish-Maine” program. We will be offering free flight lessons and a chance to fly a RC plane with one of our instructors. If you have some persons/children in your program that wish to fly one, please let them know about our “Wings for Wishes”.
