An AMA Gold Leader Club
Newsletter quick tip: Are you trying to read the Newsletter on an iPhone or iPad and you can only read the first page? Try putting your finger on the desired month (Jan, Feb, etc in the Newsletter table.) A menu should open - click "open in new window" or "open in new tab" and you should be able to read the entire issue. It turns out that iOS devices do not properly open a pdf document if it is embedded in an html page.
Next Club Meeting: Our next regular meeting will be on May 20, 2021 using Zoom. Marcy Driscoll will send the contact information to all members. Non-members wishing to find out more about the Club should contact President Jay Wiggins for the information required to join the meeting (see Contacts on the menu to the left.)
Flying Site: Directions to the new field are provided below or you can use the Field Map link in the menu on the left of this page.
Special Notice - Effective March 2, 2020 the current SRCC flying site has been permanently closed due to construction. A new site is under construction elsewhere on the closed portion of the landfill. A design for the new facilities has been created and site preparation is underway. The new runway is in good condition and is usable when construction activities allow. The pavilion is currently scheduled to be constructed starting Friday October 23. Pictures of the field are available in recent newsletters. This announcement will be updated when new information is available.
The Seminole Radio Control Club (SRCC) is a non-profit, open membership, AMA chartered club (#216) located in Tallahassee, Florida. The airfield is located 4.1 miles east of Tallahassee on US 27 South, on the Leon County landfill. The entrance to the field has been relocated. We will now be using the main entrance to the landfill. Heading north (south) on Highway 27 make a right (left) turn into the landfill and drive straight back past the weigh station and administrative office. Follow the road as it turns right and look for the new field entrance on your left. Here is a detailed map showing the general location of the field. The field is leased from Leon County, which is paid for by club dues. Dues also pay for some of its maintenance, club social activities, and the club newsletter. Facilities at the new field will eventually include a pavilion with several picnic tables. Pilot stations and a port-a-let are already on site.
