Event: X Drone Racing at Bayside May 27th

This is a gentle reminder to club members that from noon to 2pm on Saturday, May 27th, the main runway will be in use and the field is closed due to use by a visiting drone racing league. These are large FPV multi rotor aircraft which are much easier for spectators to see and keep up with the action as opposed to the very small ones.

The racing group will host a BBQ for everyone at the field. Let’s welcome them and give them the space they need for what should be an interesting event. Our secretary Alex will be overseeing the activities and be the club’s point person.

You can learn more about the event on the Google Calendar entry or at the event website here.

These folks were nice enough to mow the field and clean up the areas they are using, so please drop by and say hi, and watch the races if you are in the area.

Come out and see this new form of racing.

Event: Castle Giant Scale Fly-In May 25-28

If the Bayside field seems empty this Memorial day weekend, it’s because many of the club members are at the Annual Castle 2017 ~ Giant Scale Fly-In, hosted by the Central California Model Flyers at Castle airport in the Central Valley.
