Expecting the return of the club’s winter membership and the area’s winter guests, the Casa Grande RC Flyers club is preparing for this coming season. Also, to facilitate the hundreds of visitors who attend the club’s many events, the city of Casa Grande installed informational directional signs at the intersections of Trekell and Arica roads and Arica and Isom roads to assist attendees and new members in finding the club’s airfield.
The club just finished selecting a fifth charitable organization to help: the Pets In Need Action League, which assists pet owners who are unable to afford food and medical care for their pets. Not only will that charity ask for donations at one of the club’s events, it will also provide doughnuts and coffee to members and visitors at some of the club’s major gatherings. The Pets In Need Action League will be joined by the Casa Grande Food Bank, the Valley Humane Society, the Hospice Charitable Fund, and the Boys & Girls Clubs of Casa Grande, all of which benefit from the club’s activities.
A couple of the major events this next season include the Fly-In for Hospice on January 11, 2020, and the club’s seventh annual air show on March 14, 2020. A full list of the club’s major events, as well as directions to the club’s airfield, are listed on its website: www.CasaGrandeRCFlyers.com.
The Casa Grande RC Flyers is an Academy of Model Aeronautics (AMA) Gold Level Leader Club. It is also an Arizona nonprofit dedicated to promoting interest in model aeronautics and giving back to its wonderful community, which has supported it throughout the past seven years. The organization provides free flying lessons and holds principals of aviation classes at area schools and clubs.
