Where We Are...
We live in the beautiful "Bridge City"
Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada in the heart of the Canada's Wheat
Belt. Saskatchewan's population is about 1 million, with half those living in
the two major cities, Saskatoon, and the province's capital .. Regina. We also
have forests in the middle third of the province and mining in the north, consisting
of gold, diamonds, and some of the world's richest uranium. Tho' some folks
find it hard to believe, tourism is a large part of our economy, partly because
of the great hunting and fishing that brings our southern neighbors to visit.
The province is about 600 km across (350
mi), with lots of open spaces for flying model airplanes. There are enough trees,
however, to lure any model to trouble. We belong to the Hub City Modeling Club,
which consists of 98% RC modelers. The field we fly in is usually sown in clover,
which can get between knee-deep and hip-high, making finding models challenging
and wading to them "breathtaking".
Here's the Big Picture...
Looks like we're out in the middle of nowhere but what Fresh Air and
Wide Open Skies!
