Weekly ongoing events:
- Join us for breakfast every Friday morning at 7:30 AM Pacific Time at the Terrible’s Roadhouse Casino on Pahrump Valley Boulevard.
- Although members can fly any time they want, you can usually find us flying Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays at the Murphy RC field during the coolest time of the day. In the summer when it’s hot, flying begins around 6:00 AM. When the weather cools off, we normally start flying around 9:00 AM. Fox Field, located at Gamebird and Fox RD (Fairgrounds location) can be used anytime.
Murphy Field is located on Bannavitch South of Betty and North of Basin. You must have the gate code, as the gates are kept locked at all times. If you are not a member, but would like to use the field, please contact one of the members or Tom Piper on 775-727-1858.
