The Beresford Aera Radio Flyers recently received an AMA Club Recognition and Reward Grant for $75. This club is located in Alcester, SD. In February 2018, the club donated $250 to the Beresford Rural Office of Community Services, Inc. The ROCS Transit program operates a fleet of transportation vehicles in Beresford and several South Dakota communities. The program is designed to provide an affordable, accessible option for many communities to meet their transportation needs. The Beresford Aera Radio Flyers club includes members from the local area and surrounding towns and has been part of the area community for 29 years. The club builds and flies model aircraft at their field located west of the Beresford Gun Club. Club meetings are held at 2 p.m. on the 2nd Sunday of each month. Some members are experienced drone and rotorcraft pilots. The club also presents programs to local schools and community groups. The AMA would like to thank the Beresford Aera Radio Flyers for giving back to their community. The AMA Club Recognition and Reward Program was established to encourage clubs to promote model aviation.
