The Rochester Modelers Club hosted a Tailgate Swap Meet and Fly-In event on Sunday, October 22 at the club field in Rochester. Local flying clubs and others were welcome to attend to shop around and then fly at the field. The weather was beautiful for some great flying. We will probably hold another event like this in 2018 so check back next year if you would like to attend. Below is a video from Linda and Bill Hodgdon:

Larry's Update April 29, 2017: On Saturday, April 29, 2017, the Rochester Modelers Club hosted its first "Learn to Fly" radio-controlled model aircraft event for about a dozen members of the Newmarket Cub Scout Pack 201. The event was held to teach the kids about flying radio-controlled (RC) model aircraft — what they are, how they work, how to fly them safely, and to give them the opportunity to see many different types of aircraft and what each of them can do. Throughout the day RMC member volunteers were on-hand to teach the Scouts about all the different aspects of RC flying and to answer any questions they had. Read more
Larry's Update Aug. 17: Saturday's Swap Meet was a great day. It was a beautiful day to fly. Many people sold items and we had an overall good time with good food and good stories shared. There was an FPV demo by John Kostes that everyone enjoyed. Tollin, "Big John's" grandson, was the raffle winner of the mini-quad from Ray and Robbin's Hobby Center of Falmouth Maine, a great hobby shop and supporter of today's event. It was good to see members from other local RC clubs at the Swap Meet and we would like to thank them, as well as our own club members, for attending.
