Chilliwack May Event


hi....Just to confirm we are having the May Fly In at the Chilliwack field on Memorial Day weekend.
The runway is looking good, and the lake has been smooth as glass the past couple of weeks.
Hope to see you all here again.

Just got warmed up at Allouette Lake on Sunday in anticipation of doing some float flying.
I am looking forward to it Ron!

Horray!

The Renegade Flyers contingent will be there. Here's hoping we have a repeat of last year's record-breaking weather.

Hi Everyone,

Unfortunately, we've had a death in the family and we'll be unable to attend...

Work has been really busy also and there's been some other issues making this years May event challenging to try to get to...But the above pretty much sealed the deal for not being able to make it.

Both Beverly and I will be thinking about all of the "Chilliwack Family" next weekend and missing you all!

All the best,
Sam & Beverly

There was definitely air between the bottom of the hull and the water.
Robert was not planning on flying it as there were some other things still yet to do.
I think the "flying" was a surprise as he did not think that it would come off the water during the high speed taxi.

More pictures and video to come.
