Open to Members and Guests

The CORP has pushed back the opening of the parks so we still have to use the Bear Creek entrance. A club officer will be greeting you at the Bear Creek gate during the morning. You will have to use your gate key to let yourself out, please lock the lock back the same way, lock to lock as our lock is a middle lock.

Wow, what a day ! We hosted an estimated 90+ members and their guests at this event and a grand time was had by all. There was nary a parking spot to be had and the lot holds 75 cars. The weather was a bit windy and hot but, no one seemed to mind as we had many "hangar flying" sessions, and real flying sessions throughout the day.
Our "cook" reported that out of 197 hot dogs prepared, only 1 was left at the end of the event. They were almost finger lickin' good but, too hot to handle without a bun.
The raffle went exceptionally well with many prizes won, including a few aircraft kits, a transmitter, and the grand prize ARF won by Woody Lake.
The"pit area" was filled with aircraft from end to end with everything from helicopters to jets, to trainers, aerobatic birds, drones, and warbirds.
If you didn't make it this year, be sure to put it on your calendar for next year.
