In 1972 the Trenton model club joined with the Ewing model group and formed the CFFG.  At that time the club was focused on Nostalgia and AMA Free Flight. Over the years the club faced the usual loss of members caused by aging and health. With the loss of interest in the larger model it was difficult to find new members. They had a huge field at Coyle however the surface and thick weeds were not kind to FAC Scale models.  The big change was obtaining permission to fly at a Turf Farm.  With the availability of well-maintained grass fields the club is able to fly FAC Scale models almost without worry.  Since the move to the Turf Farm we have seen a major growth in flying and FAC Scale members.  The club now consist of 8 FAC flyers, 2 Nostalgia/AMA modelers, and 1 member who fly’s a mixture of his own design diesel models and scale.

The Field

Our field is a series of grass fields which gives us the a wide choice to set-up to suit the wind direction. The fields are flat and well maintained cut grass.  The complex is very large, that can make it difficult to locate the others.  3 things are required to use the field.  Club membership Card, AMA membership card, and a Permission card from the Farm.  These items must be on your person on the field in case the farm management does a ID check   Address: Tuckahoe Turf Farm  401 Myrtle Ave, Hammonton, NJ 08037

Dues

The annual fee is $60.00.  That covers the $40.00 to obtain the Permission card from the Turf farm, and the $20.00 for the AMA Charter and Field Insurance. The dues are expected to be paid in January. Make the check out to James Smith. The Secretary will handle obtaining the permission cards.

CONTESTS

      TUCKAHOE INVITATIONAL

The clubs first contest was held on April 23-24,2022.  Ran as an invitational style meet in order to remain with-in the field use agreement.  the club purchased some extra permits as guest cards.  We took to the field on Saturday, a day of beautiful flying weather. Sunday however turned windy and only the hearty post flights. As is the case with Free Flight contest the chit-chat detail is most enjoyable.  while theday wore on the flights were covering quite a bit of ground.  The CD was drafted into taxi-cab service so everyone got finish their flights.
     Next year the Contest Director promises to take a more aggressive stand on the invites.  Hoping to increase the number of events with at least 3 flyers.
