Boora Co Offaly
Midland Model Flying Club
Boora Family Weekend
Midland Model Flying Club has been in existence for over 30 years and fortunately own their own 4.5 Acre flying site. In 2014 we decided to put on a “Fun fly and bring and buy Sale” over three days, this was a huge success in which over 200 MACI Members attended. This was repeated for the last four years and you the MACI Members voted it the best flying event ever held in Ireland.
These events have been a costly expenditure to the Club and thankfully last year MACI came to our assistance and we are delighted that they have also decided to help us out this year. This is to try and regenerate this great sport of aeromodelling and to have three days of good old fashioned CRAIC.
