There are several clubs in the Edmonton area, as the other reply suggests. The ERCS club has served the area for a long time and has some great people in it. They currently have 3 fields, and as I understand it will one or 2 of these fields will be phased out in favour of a new field they are developing Noth East of Edmonton (probably north of Sherwood Park), this field I am told promises to be among the best for the district. The ERCS club web site is a great place to see what is going on in that club.

I personaly have belonged to several clubs over the years and each one has it's own character.

Your best choice is likely a field that is close to you until you find your interests draw you to a specific type of club. Lots of people belong to more than one club, for the social element.

Regards, and welcome to the hobby.

Are you aware of MAAC and the associated governance for our hobby in Canada. You do not need to belong to a club to be a member of MAAC, although it is beneficial. MAAC offers affordable insurance and has a number of rules for flying RC airplanes. For your protection and that of the hobby you would be best to look into it if you have not done so already.
