Model plane group hosts Fall Fun Fly

By Carolyn B. Edwards BCC Staff Writer

The Boerne Area Model Society will host a grand opening of their new field with a Fall Fun Fly on Saturday, Oct. 4, from 9 am to 5 pm.
The event will be held at the new BAMS Field in Joshua Springs Park off of IH 10 Exit 533 northwest of Boerne. The field features a 300-foot by 30-foot landing strip, plus a large cleared field to accommodate fans of remote controlled model planes.
A pilot meeting will be held at 9 am. There will be no pilot fees. Organizers say "Bring what you got, fly what you bring!"
There will be a raffle to raise funds for Kendall County Partners for Parks. The raffle includes a completely refurbished and test flown Goldberg Eagle II, along with other prizes.
Spectators are welcome, so bring chairs and enjoy the show. Food vendors will be present all day.
