NCRC Field Day 2017 was another great success. We came in 1st place in RI, 2nd place in New England, and 4th place nationally. The 2nd/3rd/4th place finishers nationally were all within a few points of each other this year.
We had three new members join the club last night (Nov 13, 2017). Congratulations and welcome to the largest and most active club in the state!
