Donald Ellington was a long time Buder Park RC model airplane enthusiastic who passed away earlier this year.  Don told his daughter that he would like to have his entire collection of planes and associated gear given away free to his fellow Buder Park flyers.  His daughter contacted GSLMA and arrangements were made to give everything away in the form of a free raffle for Buder Park permit holders.  The raffle was held at the July 11, 2017 GSLMA meeting.  35 Buder Park flyers attended and everyone had a chance to pick at least one item from the many that Don had.
