2007 Summer Fest at High Park
This year was the first Summer Fest sponsored by the Derby Community Coalition. The Coalition’s exists to help teenagers and pre-Teens stay away from drugs and alcohol. They try to do this by helping young people realize all of the healthy alternatives to drug usage.
The Summer Fest had representatives at High Park from all of the youth sports programs. In addition they sponsored an ice cream social and a movie after dark.
The DRCC set up a booth to showcase the Sport/Hobby of R/C flying. We had a number of aircraft on static display. A computer was set up on a picnic table with a RealFlight Simulator to give people some stick time without the danger of damaging an airplane. We had open flying for any of our member plus a trainer with the radio system hooked to a Buddy Box for anyone who had never flown R/C before. The pictures below show a little bit of what went on.
