    Name: Benzie Area RC Club Fun Fly & Swap Meet
    Date: May 18, 2019
    Time: 10:00 AM - 3:00 PM EDT
    Event Description:

    BARC is hoping that you will be able to make it to our 4th Annual Fun Fly and Swap Meet Saturday, May 18, 2019 starting at 10:00 AM and officially ending at 3:00 PM, but you are still welcome to fly until you wear yourself out.

    We will be using the paved East West runway, which will make it easier to fly larger aircraft like jets and ¼ scale planes.  The airport will be closed to full size aircraft, but the club will be monitoring the airport frequency(122.900 MHz) for airport traffic so we can warn the pilots to land their planes and we all will watch the full size planes land.
    We are encouraging all pilots and builders to bring a table, back of vehicle or a booth so they can sell and or trade remote control planes, parts, tools, and building supplies. This will be a great way for the pilots to get to know each other better and help fellow pilots with a plane or supplies that they may need and to decrease extra supplies you don’t want anymore. Last year the swap meet was a great success, a lot of pilots were walking around with new and used plane parts with smiles on their faces.
    There will not be a food vender at the fun fly. Bring your own beverages and food in a cooler or you can go to restaurants nearby in Thompsonville or at Crystal Mountain.
    If you have any questions please feel free to call me at (231) 970-0088.
