NACOGDOCHES ,TEXAS 5TH ANNUAL FUN FLY JULY 25TH 2015
by Stew Moore August 12, 2015This event was called the "SWEATY RED NECK FUN FLY ' on the district VIII listing and was it correctly named !! As most of you in the Arklatex area know , the temperatures have been very high with some reaching heat index figures of 110F . This was my first visit to the Nacogdoches flying site which is located on the A.L. MANGHAM REGIONAL AIRPORT facilities on an unused older runway .This flying site is the result of some very close work of club members , airport operators and the city of Nacogdoches and they are justly proud of it .
The club website is one of the better ones I have seen in my area and I recommend a visit to it . The club is the NACOGDOCHES AERO MODELERS CLUB , AMA CHARTER 2305.
While there I presented two AMA DISTRICT VIII MAD AWARDS( making a difference ), Drew Thomas -president and CD AND Dave Hinson-creator of the website and major player in the club .
I also met several members of the Lufkin , Texas club, Teresa and Keith Beasley and Robert Witherspoon
