We’re sad to announce the passing of Jim Bourke who has been the official club sponsor for many years. His service and humor will be missed.
Jim Bourke 1945 – 2018
Welcome to the 2017-2018 Club
The Hadley Radio Control club is the largest, longest running extra curricular activity in the district. It’s also the only RC club of it’s kind in North America and possibly the world. The Hadley RC club depending on the year, has 20-30 members and races RC cars and trucks on a track similar to what professional RC tracks use.
The club is open to R.C. car enthusiasts (boys and girls) of all grade levels who attend District 41 schools.
Not only is the club fun, but it teaches students about physics, electricity and basic skills of mechanical engineering. It’s also one of the only school activities where parents can work along side their child and then compete with them. Parents are always encouraged to join the club on race days and who knows, maybe will feel the need for speed.
If you are thinking of joining the RC club, please attend the club meeting which are held Tuesday after school. Also read the information pack below

- “What are the mains?”
- “What’s my transponder number?”
- After driving over the white barriers, “I didn’t cut the course.”
- After driving too fast into a corner and crashing into the wall, “marshal, marshal, marshal!”
- With great surprise, “I’m in this race?”
