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, September 15 - Monthly Meeting
Notes from our August meeting:
At the August meeting of PCRC the first topic of discussion was our open house for the Wounded Warrior Project. The event was a huge success, far exceeding our expectations. We raised through "gate donations" and the raffle of the plane kit over $1100 !!! Thanks again to EVERY member that made this possible.
Our new business discussion focused on our Fun Fly coming up on Sunday September 7th. This "end of summer" event for all members and family is always a great time. As usual the Club will provided burgers, dogs, buns, and fixings (and sodas and water). Please bring a cover dish that can be shared. Flying that day begins at 9am (unless you fly electric) and food will be served starting at 12:45 to allow those that attend church to get there and enjoy.
The Winter Banquet was also officially voted on to take place the third Saturday night in January at the Lee-Jackson Best Western in Winchester. More details on that will be provided as it gets closer.
Our September meeting will take place on the 15th at the field ... last one at this location before we move back inside for October through the winter months. - S.E.
National Model Aviation Day - THANK YOU!
A big THANK YOU to all of you that came out and contributed to the great success of our NMAD/PCRC Open House for the Wounded Warrior Project. It was an amazing success! The public had a great time and (since I was doing parking detail) many said thank you and said they planned on coming back the next time. - S.E.
