2016 Season is here.
PASS Monthly Meeting
Second Tuesday of every Month
- Join us for our monthly get together.
- Meeting is at Round Table Pizza - Every one is welcome.
- Meeting starts at 7:30.
- If you want to learn to fly R/C planes, gliders to be more specific, this is the place to meet the guys that would be glad to show you how.
- If your a builder, bring your planes to show them off.
- One of the best ways to shave about 5 years off the learning curve is to go to contests and learn how to thermal a glider from the best in the nation.
