The MARKS club was founded in 1957 to promote
the building and flying of radio controlled model aircraft. The club currently
has approximately seventy members and maintains an AMA quality flying field on
St. Lukes Road just Southeast of Fruitland, MD. In 2013, MARKS has been
designated by the AMA, as a Gold Leader Club. This is the fourteenth
straight year that the club has received a Leader Club or higher status.
Club membership is open to anyone who has
an interest in model aircraft building or flying. Anyone interested is welcome to attend our monthly
meetings or drop by the field
to talk with some experienced flyers. Each month we post a club
newsletter, The Marksmen, so that you can read about the activities of
the club on an ongoing basis. Click the NEWSLETTER selection on the left to

Visitor flying privileges at MARKS Field
of the MARKS Clubs close proximity to Ocean City, many people visiting the
area ask about guest fly privileges at our field. Due to the large number of
requests and in order to maintain safety standards at the field, the Club’s
longstanding policy has been that a current club member, in good standing, needs to accompany all
guests while at the field and that the guest must be a current AMA member.
This privilege is limited to three visits. For individuals that wish to fly
more than three time, the club has a special vacation package available.
The official contact for the club is Jason Taylor who may be
reached at 757-709-9962 or at email@example.com
Several other members have volunteered their phone numbers as well and their names are
