DRONE INVASION Success at Gateway Park

SwellPro Swift Racing Drone donated to CNY Drones.

What a Saturday we had in Bridgeport with the Town of Cicero Parks & Recreation Department! Our new friends welcomed us with open arms, as we set up our STEM demonstration area as well as a MultiGP drone race Saturday, July 20. In between races, a few local drone owners even shared their non-racing drones for the crowd.

Considering how summer weekends are packed with so many other enticing outdoor events, we managed to attract a nice group that stayed with us the whole afternoon to watch, share and learn! Can’t wait to do another event there.
