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.
