Operating as usual
I just wanted to share a few photos of my dad Larry Drake, he very much enjoyed airplanes and helping others. I can honestly say no one enjoyed helping others more than he did and always wanted to share his enthusiasm with everyone. He was a teacher and had more joy teaching others in all aspects of airplane modeling. He will be greatly missed!

Greeting R/C Flyers in Central Illinois,
Since we are mostly shut in right now, I decided to dig out a few old newsletters and flyers for old time sake. This was back when we use to mail out our newsletters by postal service. Many of you will remember some of these events. I also have the video footage taken by the news crews at these flying events. If possible I will try to convert these from VHS to MP4 and make them available as a download. Actually I haven't seen these in years but I think they are still around.
Extra note: One of the models at the 1999 Octoberfest Maria Kannalis wrote me a few years ago to tell me she is now the ring girl for the World Wrestling Federation. Melissa Collins was another fashion model that was there at the event and she told me about 10 years ago that she married a country singer and is now living in Nashville, TN. There was a third model, but I can't remember who she was.
Hope you enjoyed some of these past flying events in Coles County.
I'll send the Coles County Classic Event in a separate email.
