Nelson Field Effectively closed for 2018

Good morning all...

Well winter continues to march on, despite our hopes that we'd get some 'Indian Summer' at some point

The snow that started last night and continued through this morning has effectively shut down Nelson Field for it's no longer safe for members to try to get 'up the road' nor is it healthy for the field when folks try.

Build Your Own First Aid Kit

I recently read a great article on Flying Giants by Jim Graham regarding putting together a first aid kit to have on hand at the field......below are the details on what's in it as well as a link to the original article....a big thanks to Jim:

Annual Club Picnic.....great friends, great food and great flying equals A GREAT PICNIC

To all Kishwaukee RC Flyers and our neighbors and friends....

Well the day started off overcast but in the low 70's so not so bad temperature wise....

Fliers got out early and soon found they had to stay 'a bit' closer in if they didn't wish to lose their aircraft in the fog/clouds....

Soon we had guests arriving, and by the time lunch was served at noon we had 44 individuals chomping at the bit for 1/2 pound pub burgers and delicious jumbo dogs.

There were lots of dishes to pass brought by everyone and the soda and water flew out of the iced coolers.
