Tony provided this report. Thank you!

The kids had a great time today, they watched me, Charlie, Bill, and Chris fly our planes with Chris being their favorite as he did his 3D aerobatics.
Bill and Charlie setup his T-28 on a buddy box so that at least a few of the kids could get a try at flying. Of all the kids who did try the girl (can’t remember her name) did the best by flying several patterns around the field in perfect control.

A catastrophe was averted by myself and Charlie when the rocket laucher was not working properly. I ended up using a 3s Lipo to fire the igniters and all the kids got to fire their rockets. Bill J. and his son attended also and his son was able to give a very good description of how rockets work and had most of the kids amazed at his knowledge. Hopefully next year we can have an even larger participation from the club. OOPS! almost forgot Walt, he showed up around lunch time to fly his hand toss “Alula”.
