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
we are currently having meetings via Zoom so contact Domecq for an email with the invite.

2023 Holiday Party
Our holiday party was again a great success with over 40 members and family attending. We had some tasty food, great raffle gifts and a very nice slide show by Tony Rossi "2022 in review". As a bonus Domecq gave us a nice rendition on his piano of some popular tunes.

2022 Turkey Fly
Well, it was a cold and blistery day, temperature was around 10 degrees with the wind chill, the wind was 25mph out of the north, but several members showed up and even flew for our 2022 Turkey fly. Thanks to Peach Smith for her delicious Chili and everyone else that helped make this a successful event. See ya at the Freeze Fly

Once again, we had a great event, good flying, lots of food and lots of flying. It's kind of sad seeing the fall season coming in knowing the flying season will be ending soon but bring in the building season!
