Strike does not affect fun-fly
The teacher strike at North Penn will NOT affect the fun fly scheduled for Saturday.
We are having the event as scheduled. Oh man, wait until you see the micro arena. Bring your little planes and helis. We're going to have fun!
Don't forget to bring money for food and vendors. Feel free to sell your stuff, just don't hog the tables.
With hours of 8:30am to 8:30pm, you're bound to have some fun. Pilots, please bring a $5 instead asking for change. I know this is a pain but it makes it so much easier for us.
