THE RIDGE BARNSTORMERS OF LAKE WALES        

About Us


We are a model airplane club of about forty members serving the southeastern area of Polk County, Florida. Our members are from all walks of life and range in age.  The participating membership varies in size with the seasons, since many of our members are "snowbirds" and bring us a  variety of fresh models and faces from year to year.

Many of our modelers are traditional builders but we have our contingent of ARF modelers too, many of which fly some really nice stuff.  The flying is mostly RC but we have some C/L from time to time. The range of models goes from WW1 giant scale to small fanjet foamies.

We try to hold a formal meeting about once a month, usually at the field to discuss club business. Normally we serve hot dogs and whatever members bring to pass around.

We are presently flying from a private three thousand foot grass airfield off Camp Mack Road. We have a five year agreement with the land owner. Occasionally we have to break for full scale flights by the owner and his friends.  We are new at this site so we are still working on improvements to the facilities, and the runway surface is steadly improving.
