uses model RC gliders and towplanes.

On the morning of 4/22/2017 around 10 am, club members came out to
erect the flying field’s barriers which in my opinion officially starts
the 2017 flying season. We all had a good time kidding and joking
around as the barriers were erected with some requiring minor repairs.
I would have never guessed that it takes four members to drive one rebar into the ground. One member holds
the bar, one holds the hammer, one holds the fence and one tells the rest how to use a hammer….lol. It really
was a fun morning putting the fences up which I look forward to doing every year.
As I looked around observing my fellow members laughing and joking, I thought to myself the Palos Flying Club
is my home and it is a great organization. We all share a love for the hobby of RC, be it planes, copters, quads,
jets or even flying RC Kites (Mikey)..lol. It is a camaraderie of friendships that continues to last over the years
and for years to come.
However, there is another major factor that also binds our members and that is enjoying GOOD FOOD
together which is always served up by none other than Monica.
This lady is very special in that she saw to it that we old guys had a good WARM meal with all the trimmings
after working that day. The Good Lord in His wisdom placed Monica in our club along with her husband of
course. The effort she puts into providing us a well-planned out meal from the main dish all the way down to the
sweets is fantastic. When I finished eating, I wanted to just go to sleep on the bench and would have, but you
guys make too much noise….lol
I decided to write this article to acknowledge Monica and to show her how much she is loved by all in the club.
She has continued to keep our tummies full each and every year. She in my opinion is a woman with a big heart
with a giving and caring personality. You are MUCH APPRECIATED in all that you do for the club. May the Good
Lord Bless you and your family, oh yeah, Bill too….lol
