Red Stick RC New Field Dedication

by Jerry Walters   May 9, 2017

I had the pleasure of attending the Red Stick RC new field dedication this past Sunday. Like a lot of clubs, Red Stick lost their field last year and was faced with the quandary of finding a new location. Somehow they have developed an outstanding relationship with BREC (recreational and park commission in Baton Rouge) and dedicated their new flying site at Farr Park. BREC has granted them a 20 year free lease and assisted with much of the initial construction work. Even the nearby eagles that have there nest in a tree only 500' away have welcomed the club. I had the pleasure of presenting Dist.VIII appreciation awards to three members that provided much "sweat Equity" to the project. Red Stick can now continue its' proud 30 year history.
