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

 We had a decent turn out, and beyond decent weather for flying! Not much more can be asked for. We have mowers for August (me) and September (Larry) but that does not mean we can't just mow if it needs it and you know how to run the mower. The Civil Air Patrol folks will be coming to the field tonight from 7-9 and we hope to give them a good show of different kinds of aircraft and also some buddy box action. :) Come out and meet some new folks and hopefully spark the interest in model aviation for some young kids. We will not be having a "Fun Fly" this year, instead we will have more of an informal open house, BYOP (bring your own plane) and BYOF (bring your own foodstuffs). This will be on September 19th from 9-5. Keep your fingers crossed for good weather. After the meeting flights were flown, Larry had a fixable mishap but overall everyone had smiles. Marv put on a slow motion RC Show with his Kadet Senior, and Nick showed his jet prowess. I put 3 batteries through my new DHC Beaver. And Rick and Trudy tested a trainer (PT40) for tonight's CAP visit. I hope everyone is well and having a good summer so far despite all the craziness in the world. see you next time! Dave
