2022 SCHEDULE 

MEETINGS

We try and meet from September to May on the second Wednesday of the month. Our current meeting location is Woodland Nurseries. Meetings are generally a mix of formal club business (approval of minutes, update on our finances, upcoming events, and an open agenda item for new business) and demonstrations or presentations. The demos and presentations are varied and range from videos from our past flying seasons or how-to demos on how to cover a wing, work with foam, build a battery pack, maintain a glow engine etc. Occasionally, we have a guest speaker come in to discuss some topic related to aviation. Visitors are always welcome so if you're thinking about getting into this hobby and would like to learn more about what it's all about, come join us at our next meeting.

FUN FLY DAYS

Any day with decent weather conditions is a flying day at the field for club members but several times during the year the club holds Fun Fly days that are open to non-members, provided they have a valid MAAC membership. The usual registration fee is $5.00, for which you get lunch and often times a chance at some prizes drawn at the field. Events are one day only with the second date shown as an alternate.

As the St. John's R/C Flyers is a MAAC chartered club, PROOF OF MAAC COVERAGE IS REQUIRED to operate at our field and events. Keep our flying sites clean! Take your garbage with you when you leave.
