Club Night Thursday - June 1st

 
Thursday evenings (weather permitting), members make a special effort to get together at the field for RC flying fun. This is a great opportunity to visit our flying site and meet the Soo Modellers!
 
We had superb flying weather on May 19th and throughout the long weekend. The flying site has been a busy place, with lots of early season flying!

Fence Fix-up - Saturday June 4th

 
A work crew is required next Saturday (rain day Sunday) to remove the old fence, install the new fence, and repair the "chain link" fence.
 
All members are urged to attend. Start time is 9:00am. Bring work gloves, claw hammer, a large set of wire cutters/pliers, and be prepared "Give 'er"!

The dock is back...

 
After spending the winter on a distant shore (after the big wind storm last December), the dock has been retrieved and is back on it's moorings. Many thanks to all members that helped out!

Welcome to the online home of the Soo Modellers RC Model Airplane Club. Our club members enjoy the challenges and rewards of all types of Radio Controlled Flying Models. We fly outdoors in the summertime, indoors during winter, and always welcome new members!
 
Our club was established in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, Canada in the early 1940's as you will learn in Doc's brilliant History of Aeromodelling in Sault Ste. Marie included in the HISTORY section (above). There are many other gems here from days gone by, including scanned images from dusty old photo albums and reprints from newsletters of the past.
 
The main menu (above) also provides information about our FLYING SITE which is suitable for both land and water based operations. The INDOOR menu includes info, updates, and photos taken indoors in the gym during wintertime. The PICS menu features photos and reports of summertime flying, and the best of the Soo Modellers videos are found in the FLICS menu. The MEMBERSHIP menu provides useful information about the club for both members and visitors alike.
 
The bulletins and photos above include links to the latest updates in the main menu - and usually stick around for a few weeks...
 
The side menu on the left - Heard at the Hangar is updated weekly and includes everything from the calendar of events to the current wind speed, and several other items of interest
 
We hope you enjoy the site - and we always welcome your questions, comments, and contributions. Contact us!
 
Your friendly neighborhood webmaster,
