Richardson Radio Control Club Gary Harvey Charity Fun Fly

by Ed Kranz   October 27, 2015

The weather turned out to not be a friend this past weekend as the RRCC held its 12th Annual Gary Harvey Memorial Charity Fun Fly. Saturday was canceled due to weather and Sunday was marginal at best. With this being said, an adjusted format allowed the small crowd of spectators and members to raise over $2000.00 for the Veterans Center of North Texas, Allen Community Outreach and the Branch Volunteer Fire Department. Many thanks to those present for their GENEROSITY and to Robert Ferguson for his efforts in raising these funds under the circumstances he was dealt.
There was plenty of fun to had for spectators as the club trainer was present and 15 or so people got to experience RC Flight for the first time. Curt Jones was in charge of ground school and Brad Mennenga manned the trainer and, as you can see from the pictures, gave several people an enjoyable experience they will remember for a long time. Thanks to Allen Delger for his devoted efforts to MAKE this event happen even though circumstances warranted otherwise.
Again many thanks to the members of the RRCC for first obtaining the many donations and for their generous contributions that raised the $2000.00 for these very deserving charities.
