Whether it's in the air or on a dirt track, the K-Town Sky Scrapers share a love for racing RC (Remote Control) cars and flying RC planes.

The group, which includes the Kindersley Ground Pounders within the club, have been offering people the chance to become involved with radio-controlled vehicles as a hobby for a number of years.

Now that the snow has melted and warmer weather is on the way, you can expect to hear and see more from the Sky Scrapers and Ground Pounders.

"We're pretty excited about a brand new year," said Brian Kirkness, who is one of the original founders of the club. "The field's ready to go, the track is ready to go."

People who are interested in joining the club are welcome to attend one of the first big meeting's of the year. The group will be gathering on Monday, May 14th at a meeting room in Pharmasave, which is located on Main Street.

The club will be sharing some valuable information with current members and residents who are new to the group. Everything from fees to upcoming events will be involved with Monday night's agenda.

For people who are interested in becoming a member but are needing some help around controlling an RC plane, the club utilizes a unique system to give rookies a hands-on training experience.

Brian Kirkness explains what the "buddy box" is all about in the clip below:

He also discussed the concept of a fun fly and how the hobby doesn't have to be expensive for newcomers to RC planes and cars:

According to Sky Scrapers President Todd Francis, members are already planning for a couple fun flies this summer, including the weekend of July 14-15 and Goose Festival.
