Robson Ranch Pickleball Clubs Helps the RR RC Flyers

Robson Ranch Pickleball Club members help out at the Robson Ranch RC Flyers 2nd Annual Air Show and Swap Meet.  Our members helped make signs, direct traffic and parking, sold raffle tickets, and had donation cans for their hot dog lunch combination.  The early morning workers had on their winter coats, but by 11 AM the outer layers were removed.  It was a beautiful day and a profit was made all while watching some incredible flying.
