Just a quick reminder to everyone that the Fremont County Radio Control Club is hosting their annual Hammer Bellino Memorial Fly-In this coming Saturday, September 15th 2012, at the club airfield, located at the South-Western corner of the Fremont County Airport property. Take Highway 50 to the junction of Highway 67, which is located near the front of the Fremont County Airport at the Highway 50 and Highway 67 junction stoplight. From that intersection, turn South on Highway 67 heading towards Florence, CO. and travel only 1.1 miles to the entry gate for the Fremont County Radio Control Club Hammer Bellino Airfield. The field entry gate is located right near the South side of the large tan colored water tank, located alongside the East side of Highway 67 heading South towards Florence, CO.
Spectators are always welcome at anytime year round, as well as during the numerous club events.
No pilot landing fees are being charged for this event, but a suggested minimum of $1.00 Dollar donation to the club to donate to their favorite charities, which are the Fremont County Boys and Girls Club and also the Sangre DeCristo Hospice of Southern Colorado. We also have invited members and sponsors of the Fremont County Boys and Girls club to this Fun-Fly event, to both watch and possibly do some buddy-box flying at this event.
We are also hosting a Pot-Luck Lunch at the noon-time hour during the Memorial fly-in, and suggested foods to bring to share with everyone are desserts, salads, chips, condiments and the like items. Please bring a chair, along with your family, and the club will be supplying the hot dogs, hamburgers, brats and/or polish sausages. We will also supply the buns, sodas and refreshments free of charge too. Some members will be starting to get to the field at 8 AM Saturday morning or earlier, in preparation of the days events, and we expect the festivities to last all throughout the day. The quote "official" unquote starting time for this event is listed as 10 AM, but feel free to join in the festivities at your convenience.
Any and all sorts of powered aircraft are welcome to fly, with the exception of non-powered free-flight style gliders and the like, since our lease restricts that particular activity due to the close proximity to the active airport, so please bring your RC planes and helicopters and such with you. We encourage the flying all sorts of airplanes and helicopters, including gassers, nitro and electrics. AMA is also required to fly, but definitely not to just come enjoy the visit, and watching the flying. Bring the nitro and electric off-road RC trucks and crawlers also, if you would like to.
The "Weather-Bug" extended weather forecast for Saturday around the area and around the field is saying: "Mostly clear and sunny with light breezes 3-6 mph expected. High temperatures Saturday are expected to be 76-83 degrees throughout the day also.
Please check out our Club web site anytime at www.fcrcc.blogspot.com for lots more information about this event and lots of other club events and activities too.
Feel free to give me a phone call anytime day or night in regards to this event or any other questions or concerns at (719)-240-6805.
We all hope to see you there Saturday, and throughout the rest of the year also,
Mark J. Sullivan
In case I have inadvertently missed out emailing this to any of the members of the Fremont County RC Club or the Sky Corral RC Club, please feel free to forward this email to anyone I may have missed. Also, since I do not have a current listing of email addresses for the Pikes Peak Radio Control Club's members, if anyone else has a way to contact them, to let them know about this event, as well as any other AMA registered pilots anywhere, please forward this email to them to let them know they are most definitely invited also. I would certainly be most grateful for the assistance. Thanks again everyone.
