President's Corner

Club President Tony Rossi

The Somerset Signal Senders really outdid themselves at our annual Model Expo at our April club meeting.

It was time to show off any airplane a club member owned that hadn't won before and let me tell you we were not disappointed. The club came out in force and provided 26 models to view. A really nice mix of ARF, Scratch built and kits. Once again I can't say enough about our club. Everyone is just so active n the hobby and we really have a great bunch of guys. It is my privilege to be president of this club.

As you know we have a judging of the models by the membership and here are this year's winners:

in the ARF category:

  • 2nd place went to Dave for his really nice Gee Bee Texaco Racer
  • 1st place went to Eddie for his really nice B17. Can't wait to see this one fly!

  • In the Scratch build/model kit category:

  • 2nd place went to Jeff for his beautiful WWI biplane covered in coverite very realistic
  • 1st place went to Felipe with is beautiful kit built "Andes Condor"

  • Thanks again to everyone who came and were able to enjoy these models. NOW lets see them fly at opening day :-)
