December Meeting

Well folks, the days where we can fly outside are far and few between. The cold, wet season is here to stay for a few months-  time to start planning for 2017's flying season. MRFA will be meeting this Thursday, 6:00 at the Champaign Aviation Museum in Urbana, OH. Members are encouraged to attend and have a voice in the event planning for next season- and potential members are welcome to come and learn more about the association. Speaking of events for next season...

Now is the time to order your Tower Hobbies war birds for 2017 pylon racing! Free shipping and season deals can land you a Corsair or Hellcat for under $100. 

PLEASE RENEW YOUR AMA and MRFA MEMBERSHIP FOR 2017.

Want to relive the glorious summer days of 2016 on these cold, wet nights? Check out the photo tab on our web page for pictures from the 2016 season.

Mark, Bill, and Dick help Tracy out with his Four-Star 120, days before we packed up the plane stands in November.
