The Plane Crazy R/C Club (PCRC) is one of the most successful AMA R/C clubs in the northern Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. Founded over 25 years ago in 1987, the club has an active and dynamic membership that flies all kinds of R/C aircraft from park flyers to all sizes of electric-powered and piston-powered aircraft. We welcome you to visit with us at our flying field, or our monthly membership meeting – and learn more about our great club and this exciting hobby.

Monday, March 17th, Monthly Meeting
This meeting will be held at Chuck's house due the lack of available space at the Holiday Inn. Details and directions will be mailed at a later date.
Some notes from the February
The main topic of discussion was this year's Fun Fly events. It was decided by the members present to hold two such events this year. The first event will be held Sunday, May 18th. The second event is tentatively scheduled for Sunday, September 7th. Prior to the first event the club will schedule a "workday" to get the mowers prepared for the season and to take down the boards protecting the shelter. That date will be decided at the March meeting.
In information related to mowing, it was decided that we would have the same "sweepstakes" this year as last year where anyone that mows the field will have their name entered into a drawing. At the end of the year two names will be drawn to win one (or possibly two -- if someone is entered multiple times) $100 cash award.
At the conclusion of the meeting there a was a "show n tell" of the Sig Cadet that has been restored/built by Jason Baker. This plane had been given to the club a couple months ago about 1/3 done and Jason has it now (almost) ready to fly after some engine adjustments (and improvement in weather!).
PLEASE NOTE: Next month's meeting will be held in Chuck Thomas' basement due the lack of available space at the Holiday Inn. Details and directions will be mailed at a later date.
