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 8:00pm every last Tuesday of the month at:
American Legion Post 306
707 Legion Place
Middlesex, NJ 08846

A song I really liked catching on the radio during the 70’s was the Doobie Brothers’ “Black Water.” It begins with acoustic guitar, the drums eventually coming in with the lyric,
Well, if it rains, I don’t care!
Don’t make no difference to me.
Yes, you probably know where this is going…
Freeze Fly 2019 was in name only, the temperature being above freezing, but conditions enough to keep all but the most dedicated modelers indoors, with gusts of wind, lakes of water, and mud in abundance.
But that didn’t stop us.
We salute the following members who threw care into the wind (their planes, too) and trekked out with indomitable spirit and good humor:
Robbie and Tony DeVergillo
Four planes took to the sky (brought by Domecq, Dave Szabo, Tim, Tony, and Robbie). Some members who didn’t make it out with a plane wished they had brought one. A new crash log courtesy of Dave Szabo was installed, and with gusts that threatened planes both in the air and on the ground, the day ended up with no marks on the crash log; all in all, a proud day for the club.
The day was not without irony, however; although the 2019 crash log could not claim any victory, Robbie’s Corsair, which he flew successfully, received damage by a violent gust while he was simply holding it.
Pictures will be included in the soon-to-arrive club newsletter. Larry Gray posted pictures on Facebook if you want to see them sooner.
