Cecil Veneble Momorial Fly-In
by Olen Rutherford June 25, 2016May 30th the Flight Masters model airplane club hosted the annual Cecil Veneble Momorial Fly-In. The event to celebrate on May 19th the Fort Chaffee Redevelop Authority voted to donate 15 acres to the Club for their flying field. The Club has plans to purchase the adjacent land around the field. At 9 AM, Hardie Jefferies CD called a pilots meeting and the fun begin. There were 27 registered pilots, including myself, and former AVP Cecil Collum's grandson Anthony Thorne on the buddy box. In celebration, the Club provided us with free registration and a free catered lunch. The Club now has a very nice field with two runways and nice pavilions. They hoist two fly-ins a year, Memorial Day and Labor Day. Try to be there next year.
See you at a flying field somewhere.
