RC car racing has begun. The official summer racing season kicked off on May 4 at the Robson Ranch RC Field located off of Harris Hawk Lane. Twelve racers competed in two heats and a final. Points were awarded to the top drivers in each race. In the fall, awards will be presented to the top drivers that participated in the summer racing series. The fall/winter racing series will start in October.

Visitor, spectators and the curious are all welcome to come out. New members are always welcome anytime, and we have two tracks to practice on. Races are held each Wednesday morning; see our website for updated times. Bring a chair and cheer on your favorite driver. We also have cars that you can try out on our tracks and find out for yourself what it is all about. Information is available at our website:

RC Flying: Our standard flying days are Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays in the early morning, but flyers also come out at various times depending on the winds. We offer lessons to beginners, and new members are always welcome. Club members fly a variety of planes and can offer advice if you are just starting out.

The RC Field is open daily, sunrise to sunset, with plenty of parking for your golf cart, car or bike. Annual dues are only $20.
