Barry painted it, Jason designed it, and friend of the club David provided the vinyl work to create the new sign for the flying field. Expect to see this up by the beginning of next season
We now have dates for our annual events for this coming season.
June 7, 10am – 4pm Ken Page Memorial Fun Fly
Everyone is invited to our annual open house and memorial fun fly. We offer guidance and instruction to interested modelers and people who may be interested in joining our club. We’ll even have instructors and a few trainer planes so we can give new pilots a chance to try out flying! We’re also working some unique FPV (first person view) flying experiences for this year so stay tuned for more information.
August 8, 10am – 4pm Geneva Jet Jam & Warbirds
It’s BAAAACK! Jets were so cool last year that we wanted to invite warbirds this year! You know we’re going to have some catchy advertising for this one . . . coming soon!

September 20 MARCS Club Family Picnic
Our annual end of summer picnic for club members and their families.
We just finished making some needed changes to our website and wanted to let everyone know. MARCS now has dedicated Photos and Videos pages. This will also make the Club News section easier to find updates about the club. The menu bar on the site will look like this going forward.
More changes coming this week include updates to the event calendar and for members . . . those long awaited meeting minutes from the past few months!
Also . . . if you have any MARCS related photos that you would like to share and have added to our site please email them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Let us know how we are doing and what you think of the updates.
The mystical brush hog has finally made its way to Ken Page Field and MARCS members can now fetch their downed airplanes without threat of damage to their shins. More mowing should be happening this week but we now have the required room for the Midwest Showdown quad race later this month. We’ll be posting some aerial shots and fly-by video soon.
Recently MARCS had someone donate a Great Planes/Tower Hobbies PT-40 to the club. We weren’t sure if it had ever been flown but we did know it was in storage for a while. Our club president Marc refurbished the engine and did a little body work. Today we got to fire it up for the first time.
This airplane will be used to train new pilots and will be available to fly with a buddy box during our annual memorial fun fly on June 2nd.
MARCS would like to thank club member Bob Studer for kindly donating this beautiful Corsair to the club and Marc Stermer for cleanup and refurb work. Even more exciting is the fact that anyone can win this airplane . . . it will be our big raffle prize at the upcoming Ken Page Memorial Open House on Sunday June 2nd. This event and the raffle is open to anyone interested in the radio control aircraft hobby. We will be posting more information about the event soon.
