HAFFA CLUB EVENTS archive for fall 2020

Join our group this summer at our flying field in Olathe KS every Tuesday for our OUTDOOR FLYING SESSIONS from 6:00 pm till dark. We have several members that fly hand launched gliders and others that try their luck at wind-up models. This would be a good chance for you to meet some of our members and have some good old fashioned fun as well.

These summer “Fun Flys” are informal and guests are always welcome. Come yourself or bring your family just to watch and possibly time some of the flights with a stopwatch. (We always need timers.) Kids are always welcome, and are the future of this fascinating hobby.

We’re hoping to have our HAFFA 2020 Marion KS Free Flight Contest in the Fall.

Because of the Pandemic it is unsure that it will be scheduled this fall. Check back here, or watch for a Post that gives new insight on the situation In the mean time, go to the webpage above for the latest. At any rate you will have some time to prepare for 2021… Let’s hope for the best.

INdoor meets

For fall and winter months, our club sponsors Indoor Flying Sessions once a month at the Osawatomie City Auditorium in Osawatomie, KS.

Club members compete for points toward a coveted yearly championship trophy. We have recently instigated a “Stars & Aviators Mass Launch” of the Club’s P-18s at each of our monthly sessions where visitors can get a taste of indoor model airplanes by actually being a part of the “Pit Crew” of one of the wind up model airplanes. They are shown how the rubber “motor” is wound and instructed on how to launch the model for the “Mass Launch Event”. This is far and away the best “Take away moment” for most of the visitors who attend.
