Hey guys, it's a ways away but I wanted to fill you in on our Northwest Season-Ending fun fly October 3rd-5th.
It will be held at the Tri-City RC Modelers field in Richland, WA at the Horn Rapids ORV park. Runway is 700'x70' of "fairway" grass, with lots of overfly grass we can mow down for more flying room, and the pits are 100% grass as well.
Large parking lot big enough for plenty of RV's, there's a small RV park just down the hill in the complex, and a really nice RV park 1/2 mile down the road.
We'll have night flying, pilot's raffle, drag racing, competitions for various skill levels, BBQ lunch (plus large grill for anyone to use) and more.

Really looking forward to ending the flying season with a bang!

Here is a link to the "Event Page" on Facebook with a map, please RSVP if you can- https://www.facebook.com/events/650...ry_type=regular

Just wanted to say thank you to TCRCM club member Greg Noyce for offering up his sound system. Now we'll have more funding for additional lights for night flying, a microphone to announce the events, and music to fly to. Thanks Greg! Hope to see you all there!

Directions to TCRCM
Hey guys, we are just a week away! I just checked the forecast and it looks like PERFECT flying weather next weekend. The raffle pile is stocked, the field looks great and we are ready to rock!

I just wanted to touch on directions. If you can type in "Beardsley Rd, Richland, Washington 99354" into your GPS it should take you there. If you're coming through Richland, from the end of the Bypass Highway (Hwy 240) you'll take a left onto the Vantage Highway (also Hwy 240). From there it's about 5 miles to Beardsley Rd. You'll go past softball fields, a golf course, RV resort, and the entrance to the dump, once you pass that entrance you'll go about 1/2 mile, and take the next right onto Beardsley Rd. (I'll try to get some signs up) At that turn you'll also see a sign for HRMC (Horn Rapids Motorsports Complex) and Red Dot Paintball. Once you're on Beardsley Rd, keep going straight, all the way up the hill, through 3 sets of open gates, it'll go up a hill and bend around to the right (DO NOT TURN OFF ONTO ANY SIDE ROADS). Once you get to the top of the hill you'll see the big, grass Tri-City Radio Controlled Modelers field on your left, and a big paved parking lot.

If you end up headed east on the Vantage Hwy (between Yakima and Tri-Cities) you'll go about a mile or 2 past the sign for Benton City, then keep an eye out for the entrance on your left.

If you have any questions feel free to email me at BrettWBowen@gmail.com, or call/text me at (509) 302-5242, if I don't answer, call (509) 222-4262.

We do have potable water at the field to fill the tanks on your RV, and the RV resort just over a mile down the highway has a dumping station. Feel free to park wherever you'd like, just please don't block the main entrance to the field as we'll be driving in and out of there with night flying lights etc. If you're setting up a tent, please do so along the outer edge of the grass in the pit area along the fence. We have very limited power at the field, so if you have a generator please bring it to ensure we have enough power for the sound system.

Thanks guys, safe travels and we will see you soon!

Less than a week away! I'm so pumped. Can't wait to do some flying under the lights at night.

I love flying, I hate gravity.

BIG thank you to all who came, our sponsors, and especially volunteers. We couldn't have asked for better weather. Mark your calendars for the 1st weekend of October, 2015. We'll be doing this again!!

Thank you all so much, it was a great time and I had a blast hosting my first Fun Fly.

See you all next Spring,

Brett
