COPING WITH THE “NEW NORMAL”..
COVID-19 is still with us. Please do your part to help control the spread by practicing social distancing. Park rules are in effect. Do not gather in tight groups and stay 6 feet apart. No more than 25 people in the pavilion at one time and only two persons are allowed per table, each on opposite corners. Please be respectful of others and wear a mask.
Due to the runway construction, reseeding, and erosion control measures are still in place, the field looks a little “rough” right now, but new grass is already sprouting up in many places. So, PLEASE DO NOT WALK ON THE NEW GRASS ANYWHERE THE STRAW IS LOCATED. Also, the park recommended that we do not mow the area north of the E/W runway that was seeded for a grass runway. They think we will have a better chance of new grass growth if we let the existing growth seed out towards the end of summer.

Meet the Jefco Aeromod’lers RC Club
The mission of the Jefco Aeromod’lers is to promote the building and flying of radio-controlled model aircraft in a safe and responsible manner, and to assist in supporting the goals and mission of the Academy of Model Aeronautics (AMA). Founded in 1959, we are a chartered club of the Academy of Model Aeronautics (AMA). Since its inception, the club has grown from a small group of RC enthusiasts to a diverse group of nearly 300 members. Members range in age from 11 years old to over 80 years – and includes both male and female pilots – demonstrating all levels of flying skills. Members fly models ranging from scale Warbirds to scratch built, gliders to turbine-powered, wingspans from 14” to 120”, and basic planes without landing gear to sophisticated aircraft requiring up to 10 different controls.
