_____________________________________________________

Sam 21 serves the South San Francisco Bay region and our meetings are generally held the 4th Thursday of every month at the
 
Saratoga Firehouse in Saratoga, Ca.
Corner of Saratoga Ave & Hwy 9.
at 7:00 p.m.
    All are welcome!
 
==================
   As of June 2006 we've
 changed our meeting site to the Saratoga Firehouse.

SAM 21 members are dedicated to the  preservation of free flight model airplane designs of the 1930's & 1940's era (pre WWII) by building & flying them, and enjoying the comraderie of fellow Old Time modelers.
    Our creations are built mainly of balsa wood with fabric covering.  They are powered with a range of motors ranging from spark plug (or glow) engines to rubber band motors, and also modern electric motors.  Some are released to Fly Free, while other are commanded by Radio Control.  In either case the object is to place the model into rising air (a thermal) and keep it up for as long as possible!   
A noble endeavour!
 
Flying venues include both sport-flying and easy-going contests. 
We hope you will join us at our monthly meetings,
or at the various flying sites that we frequent.
