The Pig Roast and Fun Fly we held on August 27th, 2016 was a great success despite a day that started out looking like it would be very wet. However, by 11am it started drying out and the rest of the day was dry and conducive to the festivities. See a couple of pictures below. The parking lot was full, and everyone enjoyed  a wonderful roast dinner.

to see the full album of pictures from the Eagle Squadron session at the Folkert Community Center. This is the event where our volunteer mentors helped the students build a glider made from foam sheeting. The event was a huge success with students, mentors and all in attendance having a great fun time. After construction of the glider, the students took the gliders to an adjacent area where  a flight course had been setup in a manner similar to a golf course. The goal for each student was to toss the glider from hole to hole while avoiding hazards. The final hole was called the black hole and had a special challenge with fans and streamers interfering with the gliders path to the black hole. Please view the photos at the link above to see what it was all about. Thanks to Folkert Community center for providing the students and the facilities for the activities. Also, thanks to Jim Flick and Ron Hayward for their effort in organizing and prepping for this event. Additional thanks to all of the members who assisted with mentoring and to Susie Hughes for her expert photography and preparing the photo album.

The Dale Randles Memorial Fun Fly and Tailgate Sale was a great success!  Great turnout, near perfect weather, delicious food and a huge amount of fun. Special thanks to David Kling for providing new pilot training to several individuals and for providing lunch entertainment in the form of an awe inspiring flight demonstration.

Below are a few photos of the days events:
