The Cajun R/C Club was

joining together, we were able to pool our resources and accomplish
could not do alone.
Our club is a
non-profit club and we are chartered with the national organization,
In 1987 we moved to our current site. Substantial improvements have been made to the property in the way of landfill, drainage, surfacing of the road and parking area, the pavilion (shed), and the tractor storage shed. We have a full size tractor mower which can cut the runway and pit area in about an hour. We currently have a contract with a lawn service to cut the grass during the flying season on a weekly basis. This cost is included in the annual dues.
If you are interested in radio-controlled models, we suggest you visit our flying site. Observe the activity and ask questions of the club members.
