2020 UPCOMING EVENTS

VRCFC HAS A NEW FABRIC RUNWAY!

In order to make our field more friendly to smaller model aircraft, we
now have in addition to our 1,500 foot grass runway a new 150' X 30'
foot fabric runway for small planes and EDF jets. The smooth surface
will enable aircraft with small wheels to take off and land without
difficulty.

Come on out to the field and try it out!

DUE TO THE CORONA VIRUS PANDEMIC OUR SCHEDULED EVENTS MAY BE
RESCHEDULED OR CANCELLED. AT THIS TIME WE DON'T KNOW WHAT WILL HAPPEN.
PLEASE WATCH THIS WEBSITE FOR UPDATES.

WE DO KNOW THAT THE SPRING OPENER WILL NOT TAKE PLACE AS ORIGINALLY
SCHEDULED. WE MAY BE ABLE TO HAVE IT LATER IN THE MONTH.

SINCE THE RAY GORDON EVENT IS NOT SCHEDULED UNTIL JUNE IT MAY BE
POSSIBLE TO HAVE IT, WE WILL JUST HAVE TO WAIT AND SEE WHAT THE
RESTRICTIONS ARE FROM THE GOVERNOR.
