  1. Apache Pass RC club is hosting its 5th annual Ice House Fly In September 28 to October 1, 2017. This event is held on the historic Apache Pass grounds in Central Texas and has drawn over 200 plus pilots and even more spectators. The event has 4 main flight lines for every style imaginable under the sky, we do not discriminate. We fly day and night and go non-stop.


    The vision of Fly Apache Pass is to make it flying destination. The site has full scale fly ins, many RC events and even model rocketry. It’s our groups goal to make the Ice House Fly in a week-long plus event in the future. The site carters to be family orientated with family activities, camping, fishing hiking in addition to the flying and highly encourage the family coming out. There’s also an onsite Ice House and Steak House if so desired.

    Apache Pass RV Park
    http://www.apachepass.com/rv-park.html

    FYI The RV Park is near full capacity last time I checked with all the local construction in the surrounding area. We should have plenty of sites available with water and electricity but no sewer if you choose. Please see the policy below.

    ***Attention RV campers*** Please read this new policy concerning special RV park pricing for RC events at Apache Pass:

    - Special $10 per night pricing during our events will still be available...however, this will now be on a "FIRST COME FIRST SERVED" basis ONLY and you must be on-site to get this pricing. No reservations will be accepted at this rate.

    - Reservations can still be made for the RV park, but they will be at the full rate (typically ~ $30 per night) and must be ...paid in advance.

    - Camping "on the hill" is still the same...just $10 for a quick stop in the RV park for water fill/tank dump that should get you though the weekend. No reservations required/available for this.
