Small Model Airplane Society of Harlingen

SMASH is the Rio Grande Valley's Premier R/C Club and Only AMA Gold Leader Club!


SMASH conducts business meetings on the third Tuesday of every month at 7:00pm. The meeting is held at the residence center of Camelot Retirement Village, 1000 Camelot Drive, Harlingen, Texas. The village is located one block south of Ed Carey Drive and about 1/2 mile east of US 83.

This is a time to meet together and enjoy the fellowship of others who share our love for the sport of model aviation. Many subjects are discussed including, club business, event planning, field improvements, and tech tips. Also, the coveted monthly CRASH AWARD is handed out to the most deserving member who had a full contact landing during the month. This is also a time when you can bring your latest creation and share it with the guys in our "Model of the Month" segment of the meeting. Members attending meetings are earning tickets for a chance to win an award to be announced later and given away at this year's Annual Banquet!

Visitors are always welcome!
