495th R/C Squadron, Inc. - September Picnic 2017

Picnic 2017 Wrapup!

Buddy Box Flying at the 2017 Member Picnic!!

The 495th R/C Squadron, Inc. held it's annual member picnic on Saturday Sept. 9th, 2017, which turned out to be an absolutely beautiful, sunny, warm day. The annual picnic is one of the most popular, and highly anticipated events in the Club calendar each year, and this years' event was one of the best! The picnic was well attended, and a good time was had by all!

Beginning at 10AM, there was a constant buzz of activity at the Ogonowski Memorial Flying Field virtually all day long. Some of the highlights of the day include:

Intro Pilot Flying
Static Model Display
Huge Raffle
Huge Family Style Picnic
Candy Drop

The Annual Membership Picnic

For the past few years, the club has decided to return to the concept of a "family style" picnic by hosting a barbeque at the picnic. This effort is a lot of work, but ultimately helps to create a family atmosphere that is more in keeping with the mission of the 495th R/C Squadron, Inc. Besides, it is a lot of fun!! The picnic could not have been possible without the help of the dedicated members of the BOD:

The final food consumption tally for the picnic was: 100 hamburgers, 100 hotdogs, 60 bags of potato chips, 2 bags of salad, 2 boxes of cookies,  and 6 cases of soda! Wow, you should have seen that BJ's basket!!
