McKinley Mall Show

2001

 

On March 9-11Th we had our annual mall show at the McKinley mall. Thursday evening we all showed up to set up the tables and covers that the mall supplied. In past years we had to borrow tables from a local church to supplement the clubs tables, itís not a whole lot of fun carting 30 tables all over the country side. Having tables supplied by the mall makes setup almost too easy.

Thirty one planes were brought in for display, ranging from small electrics to a rather large Gee Bee. There were plenty of activities for the mall patrons too! On Saturday and Sunday penny planes were built from foam egg crate tops, and delta darts were constructed by young mall walkers, with the aid of several Knights members.

In addition Real Flight G2 was available for all to try their hand at RC flying. Or you could watch one of the clubs many videos while keeping an eye on Ron Partacz as he constructed his new park flyer a Fundango. Many people stopped by the table to buy raffle tickets for the plane that we are giving away at our Scale Rally in August.

Judging from comments, it would appear that the latest mall show was very successful!
