SCRCMC History and Contact List

 In December 1975 a meeting was held at Calgary Hobbies hosted by Ken Buckner, 13 people attended.
In March 1976, 150 letters were sent out to individuals who were active flyers in Calgary area inviting them to join a new club called Stampede City Model Club. 
June 1976 the club received an initial $3000.00 from founding members to seed the club, but the problem was they needed $5,100.00 to pave the field (now held by the Calgary Pylon Club at Indus). This led the club to make a Go/No Go decision in August 1976. A Go decision was made and as of November 1976 the club was formally incorporated. During this time initial members came in and provided debentures which allowed the field paving to proceed.
 
In 1977 the club was now moving forward and by September 1977 the club had 25 members, even though the membership was capped at 50.
 
The original field was called the Roy-Terris Field after Bill Roy and Jim Terris. Unfortunately both these gentlemen passed away while the club was taking shape. In honor of their efforts the field was officially opened by the flying of aircraft built by each of these gentlemen’s. The first flights were piloted by Garth McGibney and Walt Chikmoroff.
 
 

We want to thank Bob Hodgins and Pete Moulton for providing meetings notes, materials and pictures from the clubs first meeting and years in existence.
