2016 LARKS Spring Fling-April 1-2












We have been involved in introducing modeling to children of all ages, sending children to camp, doing flying demos at local schools, churches, and parks. We have also set up simulators and static displays at various locations as an educational experience to our community. We are always open to new ideas to promote our hobby to others in a safe way.
Mike Gill is the Club President for 2016
OK! It's not a plane, but a great way to keep you skills sharp in the comfort of your office.
