Saturday 4-May (May the flying be fun) we hosted out Blacksheep RC Modelers Float Fly In at Gibbs Memorial Park, Danville, IN. Fantastic flying conditions for the day. We had 28 pilots making many flights. There were multiple times that 4, 5 or six airplanes in the air many times during the day. There were planes ranging fomr small UMX to larger E-Flite and Flex planes. There were too many flights to get an accurate count in the 5.5 hours of flying. We also had many spectators watch us fly and visit the rc cars and Indy Admirals boat club.

January 1, 2024 brought us another successful event at Corsair Field for our annual First Fly In of the New Year. Temps started out at 31 degreees an climbed to a balmy 35 degrees by the time everyone was loading up. The wind stayed steady between 12-15 mph (at least the wind direction was right down the runway)which made for cold hands and time in the heated clubhouse. We had 30+ members attend and enjoy a first flight of 2024 and lunch. We had chili, ham & bean soup, chili and a hamburger/potato/cheesy soup. Also, plenty of fudge, chips, and cookies. I did not get an accurate count of all the flights, although there were many. First of 2024 flights included electric planes, gas planes and nitro powered planes of many different varities. All in all, a really nice event for January first in central Indiana!
