Harold Koontz: I have been a member for 4 years. I am retired and fly with the Wednesday crowd. We mow grass in the morning, go to lunch from 11 to 12 and fly from 12 till around 3 or 4. I fly mostly 40 to 95 size glow engine airplanes both high wing and low wing and a few electric airplanes. With the retired Wednesday bunch I am the rookie so I have quite a few coaches available. Yes I do take advantage of them. In the winter I enjoy building airplanes and I pretty much took over the basement. [ we now call it the hanger] Last winter I built 3 biplanes, 1 ARF and 2 kits. This year should be interesting since I have never flown a bipe. I have 18 planes ready to fly and about 20+ in the boxes so yes I got hooked on the hobby. Come out and join us on Wednesdays.

Dave Folk: Ever since I was young, flying models has been instilled in me as being normal. My dad (Bill Folk) flew models when he was a kid and that thinking philosophy was passed down to his kids. I spent 42 years in the cable TV industry and I’m recently retired. On the Wednesday crowd, I am considered the youngster. I’ve been a member of the CORKS for about 50 years. About 20 years ago I was the Corks Treasurer and Newsletter Editor. Now I am the Treasurer again. I fly mostly large scale gas planes ranging from military to the light aircraft type. In recent years I have developed a fashion for twin engine planes and have a couple in the stable. I also do some electric flying. This is a great hobby and I look forward to seeing you at the field.

Tim Hendricks: Tim was in the Air Force and holds a Private Pilots license so aviation has been a part of his life for many years. His neighbor, Tim Markley, had a couple of small electrics hanging in his garage and he hadn’t flown them for many years so Tim expressed an interest to “Tim the neighbor” and the rest is history. The Tim’s joined in 2016 and have enjoyed growing the hangar from small electric foamies to 20cc gassers. He enjoys building from kits and his lack of flying skills has given him many opportunities to hone his building and repair skills. Since he is retired he flies weekly with the Senior Squadron and any other time he can get someone to meet him at the airport. Since he had no experience prior to joining CORKS he is grateful for the many members who have been friendly, helpful, and been great mentors.

Scott Nagy: Scott has been playing with various and sundry model aircraft since he was a wee lad. He took a long break from having fun by pretending to have a fulfilling career. He started up with RC aircraft again in 2009 and hasn’t looked back since. Scott holds degrees from both credible and not so credible institutions. He spends his days making bespoke knives and dabbling with computers as little as possible. Come out and talk to him at the field, you might find him amusing, or at the very least non threatening.

Shawn Boyd: I started flying RC planes in spring of 2013 and took my first solo flight a few months later in July. The next year I flew mostly 60 and 90 size nitro. Almost one year to the day after my solo I flew my first gas powered bird. My 30% Edge 540, which to this day was still one of my favorite planes I had. It lasted 2 weeks short of a year and had a fatal servo lock and ended up getting put to rest. Currently I mostly fly large scale gas powered aerobatic style planes and I am trying to diversify my hanger with some gas powered scale planes. I love the people in the hobby. It is one of the few places you can go and no matter what problem you are having there is always many who are willing to help if you want it.

Dennis Brewster: From a very young age I have always been fascinated with aviation. After years of asking, my dad finally decided to buy me an RC airplane. That first airplane was a Goldberg anniversary edition .60 size cub. My dad and I spent the winter building and getting the airplane ready to fly. Finally when spring came we joined the W.O.R.K.S. (Western Ohio Radio Kontrol Society) club in Miamisburg Ohio. We enrolled in the student pilot program and the rest is history. The next winter dad and I built two airplanes, a Trainer 40 and a Goldberg Eagle 2 Trainer. This was 1989 and since then we have spent many, many Saturdays and Sundays at various flying fields around the tri-state area. Since those early days I have moved up to giant scale airplanes and have not looked back. I enjoy flying all types of RC models, from the small indoor electric airplanes and helicopters to Giant Scale WWII war-birds. I have been a member of C.O.R.K.S. since 2008, serving as the newsletter editor since late fall of 2015.
