The Piggott RC Club is hosting its annual spring fly-in Saturday and Sunday, with participants expected from several states. In light of the recent rain, organizers first indicated the fly-in would be moved to the Piggott Municipal Airport due to wet conditions at Pfeiffer Field.

But, club members were able to get the flying field cut in the past few days and conditions have improved which should allow the event to be held at the usual location. But, in the event of more rain the flyers will be gathering at the airport and either way, the public is invited to attend.

The local RC flying field, Pfeiffer Field, is located east of South Garfield Avenue and may be reached by turning at the stop sign adjacent to the Piggott Public Pool.

Flyers will be taking part in a variety of events and competitions, and will be in action all day Saturday and Sunday until mid to late afternoon, as long as the weather cooperates.
