Southwest Vintage RC Festival
Third annual Vintage R/C Festival July 29, 2017
This is a fun gathering of modelers that still like to build models the old fashioned way, with bits of balsa. It is held under the auspices of the Vintage R/C Society, and hosted by the Cedar City R/C Club, and the Iron Mountain Vintage Fliers. This year the cutoff date is for models kitted or plans published prior to 1983, models can have been originally designed for R/C, Free Flight, or even control line, converted to R/C. Landing fee is $10 discounted to $5 for VRCS, SAM, and Classic Pattern Assoc. members. AMA membership is required. The landing fee will include a BBQ lunch with a suggested $5 donation for additional family members.
The field is at an elevation of 5800 ft. and average high temps. Are 90 degrees that time of year, it is typically the calmest time of the year, but late afternoon, and evening thunder showers are not uncommon.
If you have an RV you can stay at the field (no hookups) there is a Forest Service type pit toilet. Lodging in Cedar City is plentiful, and in all price ranges, another option would be to stay in one of the lodges at Brian Head (35 minutes away) at 10,000 ft it is the second highest town in the U.S.
If you are able to stay for a few days you should plan on doing some sightseeing, Cedar Breaks. Kolab Canyons, Zion, Brice. Monuments and National Parks are nearby. Do some hiking, fishing, enjoy the Wildflowers. Or take in a play at the Utah Shakespeare Festival. https://www.bard.org
