Fliers donate $250 to Boys & Girls Club
Members of the High Sierra Radio Control Club donated $250 from the proceeds of the Chili Fly-In held in October to the Boys & Girls Club of Western Nevada.
Tom Reinboldt and Harold Siegfried of the club presented a check to club director Kathy Blankenship on Dec. 18.
This is the fourth year in a row that the model fliers have donated proceeds from the annual event held at Carson City’s Pony Express Model Airplane Field to the Boys & Girls Club.
Among other things, the club holds the annual charity fly-in to maintain its status as an association leader club. Other requirements include holding monthly meetings and satisfying safety standards.
The air field is city-owned and the High Sierra Radio Control Club has a management contract to operate it. Only fliers with proof of Aeronautical Modeling Association membership or equivalent liability insurance can fly at the field.
