Sky Squires Mall Show, University Mall, Carbondale

Fred H. Dippel, April 7, 2018

Model aviators, no less than full scale aircraft aviators and professional seamen, are subject to the moods of the weather. And so it was this March as Winter and Spring took turns on the daily stage. Fortunately, Saturday, April 7_th, contrary to an ominous forcast, appeared without any snow or rain, but with very cold winds. Nevertheless, the eager workers of the Sky Squires RC Club, aided by the stalwarts of regional clubs, went to work bright and early and by 9 o'clock Showtime had set up all the tables and chairs, the three simulators, and several dozen beautiful models. As the day wore on, however, it became apparent that the chilly day was keeping shoppers home.
