On 5/27/21, NCRCC hosted a pack of Cub Scouts from Ellington who are transitioning into the Boy Scouts. As part of their scouting, they used our flying field to fire off several Estes model rockets. Great NCRCC member support for the event through cheering for the kids, feeding them, demonstrating flight, teaching ground school, etc. Most importantly, the Cub Scouts (and their parents) had a wonderful experience. The kids were successful in launching and re-launching and then recovering. All but one rocket was recovered despite a strong cross-wind.

Flying at the East Windsor Dome has continued on Fridays throughout the cold weather months. If you’re interested in indoor flying please contact Bob S- or Irv T- for details. These people look like they are enjoying it!
Leo N- and Ola N- visited the flying field on 3/7/21. (Note the skis just in case!) Despite the chill in the air, they reported virtually no snow (except in the pit area) and that the field is a bit muddy in spots.
In the age of COVID, here’s a glimpse of what our November virtual club meeting looked like. Can’t wait for the end of COVID restrictions and being able to meet in person.
February 2021: Bill G- and Bob B- were at the field and were pleased to report that everything is in good shape. Bill flew a wet-fueled Goldberg Cub on floats and Bob flew the Tidewater.
