Annual Fun Fly 2018

2018 Upper Great Lakes Yearly Fun Fly

June 23, 2018

 

This year's fun fly was held June 23 at the club field. The weather was perfect even though participation from other clubs was off this year.
The club had 4 participants from Timmins; Andrew and Joseph Coholic, Ron Roy and Gary Tremblay and our perennial friend from Wisconsin, Tiny Westburg. This year we did have excellent participation by club members. Again, Meyers Munchies were on hand for lunch.
 
The flying was perfect with great demonstrations from Andrew with his jets to the new club demonstration airplane helping several new members get started. One of the highlights was presenting a certificate of appreciation to club member and JD Aero manager Julian Chin for JD Aero's generous support of our club.
 
All registrants received a goody bag prepared by Rino and the pilots' prizes were nicely distributed among both locals and visitors - notably though our friend Ron Roy went home empty handed for the first time in many years.
Special thanks to Rose Dew for donating several items to our prize table fro Steve's estate.
 
Thanks also to Kevin and Zone F MAAC for providing a kit and motor that was raffled off and won by Craig Knight.
