Below is a great example of the brotherhood that is aeromodeling.
Recently Bayport Aero Club in Deer Park lost their field due to the land being sold. The Gulf Coast Radio Control Club(GCRC) offered them the use of our field free of charge until they could find another place to fly and enjoy the hobby. After a few weeks, the land deal fell through and they were once again allowed to use the land until it is once again sold. They had removed and disposed of all their building, fencing and the things that make a field flyable. When they returned, GCRC recognized that this all created a financial burden on their now almost depleted funds, We all know the cost to build a field, so GCRC stepped up and donated a 10X20 canopy(valued at $200.00) along with a check for $100.00 to help them get back into the enjoyment side of this hobby.This is just what GCRC does, and we asked nothing in return. Over the past years, GCRC and Bayport Aero Club has been sort of rival clubs. Now that this has happened, the new president and I have coffee almost weekly and discuss ways to make each club a better place.
Just thought that you would like to hear a little of what we do that never gets noticed.
