2017 TAG Grant Winners Announced

The TAG grant program was introduced to encourage our members and clubs to promote modeling as a positive recreational activity to those in their communities, TAG was the first of several programs implemented by AMA in 2007.

  1. Years ago, I Horrace D. Cain, upon leaving United Airlines,(leaving due to my age 60) as a
    Boeing 727 Captain,(now they can go to 65) found and purchased 100 acres of fine farm-land north-east of the Houston area. 50 of those acres were delivered to JETERO RC CLUB. Jetero now has an excellent RC facility. (I made some $$$ HA!) I sold off the remainder $$ to land that would become payment for the entire 100 acres. Jetero and myself made a few $$ which allowed
    Jetero RC Club membership to have a great flying facility. It is very fine even after a strong Hurricane that blew the club to HECK several years ago. We rebuilt it!
    I will soon be back flying again as my problem of skull-Fracture 0f 2.6 years ago seems to now
    getting less than the situation just a few months ago. Sure Hope so!
    If you are in the Area, feel free to get with Jetero RC Club, a fine group of Aero-Modelers.
    Posted by Horrace D. Cain, RC Flier soon to get back into the #1 fun for model airplanes.
