RC Dusters, Sandwich IL
 
The club I belong to is the RC Dusters, from Sandwich IL. Our current club field is actually in Leland IL, on US34. Our club meets on the second Wednesday of each month. During flying season, we meet at the field, conduct business, then fly together. In the off-season, we meet at the Sandwich Park District building, located at the corner of Latham and Arnold streets. Meetings are always at 7PM.

This is the last year for us to use our field in Leland. A nearby property has been rezoned to residential, and when the house is up it will be unsafe for us to continue to fly there. As such, we have secured a new flying area which will be seeded and developed this spring. That field is approximately 5 miles south of Sandwich on farm property owned by one of our members. We hope for our new field to be everything we already have, and more!

Should anyone be interested in membership, note that AMA membership is required, and current dues are $40 per year. We have a great group of flyers, and fun is always had by all!

I know, I was raised here in the old day. Back when it was under 1200 people. Now we have over that many in the high school.

Gee, John, you wouldn't have any relatives in Sandwich, would you?

John Seidelman 03-24-2008 06:46 AM

Used to have. But none now. Any now are very distant.

My moms sister is living there now I had forgotten about her. Many years ago my dads oldest sister lived there across the street from what was a ice cream stand on the north side of 34 and the street pie cuts around the bld.

In the mid 50's I used to take my 1956 Karman-Ghia to the Oswego Drag Strip. I was out in a corn field, not much else around then. Bet it's no longer there or I could even find the location, LOL.
