Robson Ranch RC Club Support of the Civil Air Patrol in Eloy
The Robson Ranch Radio Control Club was instrumental in forming an aviation education program with the Eloy school district. Flying members of the club worked with the school to implement a training program that included academics, flight simulators and RC plane flying. The program was hugely successful and eventually developed into a local squadron of the US Air Force's Civil Air Patrol. Members of the RC Club have stayed active with the squadron, providing support and assistance to these young aerospace enthusiasts.
In June, 2021, the Club approved the development of a 'scholarship' program. The first recipients of the scholarship were two members of the Eloy CAP. The first awards were made in the Spring of 2022. Initial plans were for one or more $500 checks to be awarded to Junior Cadets or Senior members to use to pursue their education or military service. We were able to award the two cadets with checks for $750 each at our RC Club awards dinner.
Our initial goal was to raise $2500 for the first year. We have exceeded this goal. As this program continues, monies will be raised through free-will offerings from members at the club's flying and off-road car racing events, raffles, and donations from the public. If you would like to donate to the cause - please send a check made out to Robson Ranch RC Club to our treasurer:
Glen Hoffschneider4389 Agave Ave, Eloy, AZ 85131
Please indicate that the check is a donation to the Scholarship Fund.
Donations are not tax-deductible.
