Welcome to the Davenport Radio/Control Society

The Show at Northpark Mall is just one week away.  The current forecast calls for more seasonable temperatures than last year when some people were at the field flying. Here are some of the details:

-  I need help loading the stanchions, rope, etc., at the white barn off 210th Street out by the field at 4:30 p.m. on Friday, Feb 9.

- We will start setting up in the Younkers Court at Northpark Mall at 5 p.m. on Friday.  No planes, just putting up the tables, stanchions, etc.  

- Northpark Mall's doors are unlocked at 8 a.m. on Saturday, Feb 10.  You can start bringing in your planes, etc., then but be set up by 10 a.m. when the Mall stores open.  Shawn Voisine is organizing the simulators so contact him if you are bringing yours.  

- We want to see all types and sizes of planes.  The boat club will also have some boats.  Please let me know what you are bringing just so we have an idea of the diversity available.  It would be great to have a turbine or two also.  Remember, you must stick around until we close up shop in mid- to late afternoon.

- We will be raffling off a Carbon Cub S+ Ready to Fly (https://www.horizonhobby.com/carbon-cub-s-13m-rtf-p-hbz3200).  Encourage your friends to come out and take a chance to win this trainer.  We will also have balsa gliders to give away to the young people (<10 yrs) for as long as 48 last.  

- People need to stay around to help break down when the end is callled.  

I have posted the event on numerous media calendars in the Quad-Cities. This is one of the main ways that we get the word out about the Radio Control hobby as well as our club.   I will also be on the Paula Sands show on Tuesday, February 6, promoting the show also.  Tune in to watch me stumble over my words.  

Again, let me know what you are bringing.  Let's make this a huge success.  Any questions - please contact me.
