It was beautiful flying weather through both days of the event as the Mercer County Radio Control Society held its 22nd annual Jumbo Jamboree over the Memorial Day Weekend. As always, the event was held at the club’s Warren Kruse Field in the Assunpink Wildlife Management area near Imlaystown, New Jersey.  Forty-nine pilots attended with all kinds of Giant Scale Aircraft making the two-day IMAA / AMA sanctioned fly-in a great success. The event featured a wide variety of planes and of course lots of great food.  The People’s Choice Award, was taken this year by Seth Hunter for his scratch-designed and scratch-built 1/3 scale WWI Halberstadt III. It features a full flying stab and rudder and has pull-pull controls on all surfaces. It also features an incredibly detailed scale model of the Argus 120 HP straight six cylinder water-cooled engine used on the original.  

Proceeds of the event will go to the Sunshine Foundation which funds an annual Dreamlift to Disney World for seriously ill and disabled children. Most of the funds were raised through our food sales and 50-50 raffles.  Special thanks should be given to all those who participated including our event director, the flight line crew, food staff, fly-by commentary and all participating club members for doing such a fantastic job.  We would especially like to thank all of the guest pilots and local club members who participated in the event making it the success that it was.

We hope to see all of you again next year!
