ARE YOU INTERESTED IN RADIO-CONTROLLED MODELS?
If you live in the Valley area, Valley R/C is the Model Club to join.
Valley R/C Model Club, Inc. was formed in 1965 to foster, expand, and perpetuate the practice of safe R/C modeling and the spirit of good fellowship among all modelers.
VRCMC is an Academy of Model Aeronautics chartered radio control club. Our primary interest is flying model airplanes and helicopters. Some members also enjoy R/C cars and boats.
Our membership is comprised of people of all ages and professions. Club activities are posted at our flying site in Round Top Park south of Athens, PA.
Contrary to much advertising, flying R/C aircraft is not a ‘buy today – fly tomorrow’ hobby. We can help you get a good start on a fun filled sport. Members will share knowledge and help you in the selection, assembly and flying of your first model.
Contact one of our officers to learn more about our Club and the R/C hobby. Guests are always welcome at our bi-monthly meetings and at our flying field in RTP.
To become a member of VRCMC, you must attend one of our meetings and be sponsored by one of our members. Adult members are charged a one time initiation fee of $15.00. Annual dues are $20
Junior members (<18) pay a $5.00 initiation fee and annual dues are $1.00.
All flying members must join the Academy of Model Aeronautics. Annual dues are $75 for adults and $65 for seniors, Free for age 19 and under. Liability insurance for flying activities and a monthly magazine are some of the AMA benefits.Check the A.M.A here for more info on pricing www.modelaircraft.org
