Fort Bend RC Club Muscular Dystrophy Fly-a-Thon

by Benny Behrens   September 6, 2015

Saturday September 5, 2015 Fort Bend RC Club (FBRCC) held their annual Muscular Dystrophy Fly-A-Thon with event proceeds donated to the Muscular Dystrophy Association. This is the 18th consecutive year FBRCC has held this very successful event.

The event was held at FBRCC’s field which is located west of Houston in Rosenberg, TX just north of Highway 59. The club has outstanding facilities with two paved crossing runways of suitable length for most any RC airplane including large scale turbines. 24 pilots were registered and essentially all sized airplanes from basic trainers up to twin engine turbines were safely flown for the pleasure and entertainment of the many spectators and visitors that were on hand.

At lunch time RC Hobby Shop’s Warbird team put on a very impressive demonstration, followed by a great helicopter demonstration after which there was additional flight demonstrations by several pilots flying turbine aircraft.

Rob Longenecker, President of FBRCC, recognized “Charlie Caulkins for successfully managing the elements and volunteers to have such a successful event. We also appreciate the support of the Air Force JROTC and Major Doug Hawn from Dulles High School, who handled donations and food service”. It was obvious that many of the club’s members had a hand in helping make this a very successful event. I am sure the spectators, pilots and RC visitors from local clubs had a great time and really enjoyed the event – I know I did.

And most important the Muscular Dystrophy Association reaped the rewards thanks to all that participated.
