2015 Tehachapi Crosswinds RC Club Fun Fly
July 4, 2015 Fun Fly Event participants. What an enjoyable day!
2015 Club VP, Matt Reed, finds a new project!
Bomb Drop competition in full swing. Note the "bomb" ribbon released from the cup attached to the top of the fuselage.
A club favorite, the "Taxi-Fly-Taxi" event was quite popular. Eat a cracker, when you can whistle, then you can take off, fly a course, then land and stop in the box. It's surprisingly difficult to whistle after eating a single cracker! Try it!
2015 Fun Fly Event winners: Bri Brubaker, Eric Brubaker, and Dave Metz. Way to go! Special thanks to Brubaker Models for donating the prize medals!

A New Year's Day tradition, all of these pilots performed their lucky loop and roll. It was a great day for all! Tehachapi Crosswinds wishes good luck for the rest of the year!
Kent Beal and Bill Fisher enjoyed the first flight of 2015. They took off simultaneously at 12:15AM to claim first flight of the year together. And they roughed the 16°F, perfectly calm night to do it.
