Somerset RC is a multi-interest model airplane club. We have all types of aircraft including glow, gas, electric, scale, 3D, sport flying, and Pattern. The models vary in size from small electric to 40% gas. Unfortunately, turbines are not allowed. We all love to just come out, kick back, and spend some time sharing stories with fellow modelers. We have several events for club members and offer free instruction to members. So, come on out and be a part of our club.
Meetings are 7:00 pm every last Tuesday of the month at:
American Legion Post 306
707 Legion Place
Middlesex, NJ 08846
All events will be held at North Branch park
355 Milltown Rd,
Bridgewater, NJ, 08807-7020 ( 40.579193, -74.678164 )
Today, June 20th, at our "Big Bird Flyin", membership from at least five clubs flew together: the Staten Island RC Modelers, the Union RC Club, Burlington County RC Club, AFRCF, and Somerset RC. For the vast majority of the pilots that registered, it was the first event we attended this season, with many local events cancelled since the societal upheavals.
Our event transcended the norm. We said goodbye for a time to isolation. Our clubs today flew together in fraternity.
We had big birds, small birds, warbirds, jet birds. Moreover, we had fun. Thank you all for your presence and participation today.
President, Somerset RC
