Hi Chad,
My name is Bruce and I am 56 now and have been flying off and on for 25 years now.
I am Treasurer, Assist Safety Officer and Principal Instructor at my club which is the Society of Aeromodelers (SAM) in Memphis,Tn area. Our club has been at the same location for 29 years now and has the only paved runway in the area. I fly sport aircraft and build all of my planes from kits or plans.

Hi, Bruce. I lived in Memphis for 21 years, before moving out to east Tenn.
I was a part of the Prop Busters club. Just curious, where is your club
located within the Memphis area? I never heard about it, to my
knowledge, while living in Memphis.

Technically I guess we are in Mississippi but we consider ourselves a Memphis club. See attached map.

http://maps.yahoo.com/maps_result?ad...w=1&name=&qty=

We're less than a mile South of the state line.

Now I remember. The Prop Busters lost it's field sometime in the mid '80s or so and your
club allowed us to come down and fly in the interim until we found another field.

From a former RCRC Member (and club president) I'd be lax if I didn't take this opportunity to throw my hat into this thread. I hope you guys are enjoying the site and remember....fly for fun, not for profit

Back in the late 80's and early 90's......gotta love HSV - it is one well kept secret! Of course out here we have ONLY 360+ flying days but NO BUILDING SEASON

Say "Hi" to Wayne G, Bob T. Ed H. and the gang for me - I miss 'em!
