Welcome to Sodbusters R/C Club

In 1981 the founding members Frank Zocco, Ren Fetzer, Tim Mallet, Dean Everetts, John Boyd, Mark Glammeier, Terry Satterlee, and Jim Ricketts created a new club in the Sioux Falls area. The Sod Busters had a monthly newsletter called the, "R/C Flyers Newsletter". It had a logo of an airplane tail sticking out of the ground. Mark Glammeier and Chuck Erlandsen produced the newsletter. The club's first flying field was in Harrisburg. That field was lost due to a housing development. The club moved to another field in the Harrisburg area in 1987, and that lasted for several years, until that was lost to a housing development in the fall of 1998. During the loss of a flying field, the Sioux Falls RC'ers and Beresford Area Radio Flyers let us use their fields as guests until a new location was found. Dean Everetts found our current location in 1999, and went to Minnehaha County Commission meetings to get permission for us to use the property for RC flying. Sod Busters has hosted an RC auction for over 20 years. The first auction was at the Western Mall, then a church, then the VFW, and now at the American Legion.

Latest Club Meeting

 8 members were present for the meeting this afternoon. The issues as far as the auction ad the convention center have been solved, at least for now. We will move forward as planned. Congrats to Larry R. as our new President. Also to Dave H on being the new sec'y/tres contact person for the club. He will also be the contact person for the AMA. He will be recognized by the AMA as the intro pilot instructor. Both will be effective on or about Dec. 1. For show and tell, Larry brought a beautiful Sig King Kobra with a new Magnum 46 2 stroke that he "stole" at the Omaha auction. Everyone have a great and wonderful holiday season. No meetings planned for the next few months. -Marv
