Headwaters RC club's Fun Fly is Aug. 25-26

A few miles out of town, between Park Rapids and Osage and down an unremarkable road, is a field. Too small to produce any decent amount of crops, the field has been commissioned for another use.

A few miles out of town, between Park Rapids and Osage and down an unremarkable road, is a field. Too small to produce any decent amount of crops, the field has been commissioned for another use.

Every Wednesday, the Headwaters R/C Flying Club gathers at the field to do what they love: fly remote-controlled planes. Considered "Beginners Night", newcomers are instructed on various topics, such as radio control, flight etiquette, and suggested beginners planes.

Spectators are warmly welcomed to observe at any time on Wednesdays at no admission price. The only request made is that all spectators stay behind the first fence, and that all children and pets be controlled.

Coming up shortly will be the much-anticipated Fun Fly on Aug. 25-26. According to Vice President Tom Stennes, participants come from as far away as North Dakota, and as long as participants are members of the AMA (Academy of Model Aeronautics), they are welcome to enter any crafts approved by the organization.

Food, prizes and high-flying fun will be available both days, as well as camping for the hard-core fans. The event begins at 7:30 a.m. on Saturday the 25th, and ends at 5 p.m. on Sunday the 26th.
