Welcome to Sodbusters R/C Club

In 1981 the founding members Frank Zocco, Ren Fetzer, Tim Mallet, Dean Everetts, John Boyd, Mark Glammeier, Terry Satterlee, and Jim Ricketts created a new club in the Sioux Falls area. The Sod Busters had a monthly newsletter called the, "R/C Flyers Newsletter". It had a logo of an airplane tail sticking out of the ground. Mark Glammeier and Chuck Erlandsen produced the newsletter. The club's first flying field was in Harrisburg. That field was lost due to a housing development. The club moved to another field in the Harrisburg area in 1987, and that lasted for several years, until that was lost to a housing development in the fall of 1998. During the loss of a flying field, the Sioux Falls RC'ers and Beresford Area Radio Flyers let us use their fields as guests until a new location was found. Dean Everetts found our current location in 1999, and went to Minnehaha County Commission meetings to get permission for us to use the property for RC flying. Sod Busters has hosted an RC auction for over 20 years. The first auction was at the Western Mall, then a church, then the VFW, and now at the American Legion.

Latest Club Meeting

 On a very windy meeting nite, 14 members were present. Thanks to Larry and Robert for braving the gusts and getting in a little entertainment for the rest of us who were not so brave. Chuck Wood has decided that all of his R/C items/airplanes are now donated to the club. They will be sold at the auction next spring. He has been an "airplane nut" as far back as he can remember (he is now 91). This will be a nice addition to the auction. So, here?s a big, big THANK YOU to Chuck. We?re still working on getting some small rock on the low spots on the driveway for those places that seem to be a little soft in the spring. A discussion was held on the possibility of having some pylon racing for the fun fly this Sept. Larry offered to see what interest he could generate. Everyone was OK with that. Door prizes will be eliminated for the fun fly. There will now be a ?donation jar? for the picnic lunch. ?til next time. Marv
