Hello Fellow Texas Center Members,

I understand that the Texas Center is getting a lot of attention on social media once again. Anyone who knows me, knows that I don't do social media. And, with young bird season just around the corner, a convention to prepare for, and a grandson that I golf with 4 days a week, I really don't have time for it. The recent buzz however dictates that I comment and here it is: The Texas Center is not a chat room or Facebook group. We are an actual organization with our own Constitution and Bylaws. We have our own show program with our own Texas Center certified judges. Further, we have our own ladies' auxiliary and scholarship fund for members and family members. We have our own annual convention with races, awards and a banquet to recognize winners and accomplishments. We even have a winter meeting, championship show and race. Our door is always open - we welcome new flyers anytime. So, if you are looking for some good competition, sportsmanship, and just some good ole fun, come join us. You'll be glad you did. You can visit our Texas Center website for updates on upcoming shows, conventions, and other events and news. Until next time, Keep'em Flying!

Yours in the Sport,
Roland Gutierrez


Since taking office, I have wanted to fly race where everyone in the Texas Center could compete against each other in a single race. I am excited to report that notwithstanding logistical issues, this race is going to take place this spring!

Waco, TX was determined to be the center of the Center. However, using Waco as a release point would make for too many short lofts. Many would only be flying 100 miles.

With Bud Williamsí help, it was decided to fly from Little Rock, AR. This will allow most everyone in the Texas Center to compete in the race. The race will be flown May 12, 2018.
