James Mastricola Upper
Elementary School Pre-School
I was contacted by
one of my Boys & Girls Club kids (Justin) to ask if
I would be available to do a launch for his mom's pre-school
before the end of the school year. I found a few
openings in my schedule and we set a date!
Justin had several
models from class (and a few he built on his own) that he
wanted to fly. In addition, I brought several good demo
models to round out the launch. All in all, we flew
about a dozen models over a 30 minute period. The launch
was exciting enough (and short enough) to keep all of the kids
The weather was
good, though a bit breezy at times. We lost one
(Justin's Avalear) but otherwise had a perfect launch for the
kids. After I discovered that Justin didn't have any
launch equipment of his own, and was clearly interested in pursuing
the hobby after B&GC, I made a point of giving him a
complete launch set with pad and controller (as well as his
Thing-a-ma-Jig that went behind the fence).
To say the least,
it was a good day of flying out at JMUES this day!
