ON THE COVER: Do you remember your first flight of a model aircraft and
your quest to learn more about the hobby? It is likely that some of your
early knowledge and experiences came with the help of others, quite
likely at a flying club.
This month we feature an article by Dave Scott that reminds us the
importance of clubs for new and existing modelers, as well as some
insight on how clubs might grow.
