We had our first informal event on Aug. 20 to celebrate our 50th anniversary. Attendance was spectacular, with an overflowing parking lot. The weather gods shone down on us (literally), and breezes were moderate. Flying started about 9:30 and continued until mid afternoon. Hot dogs ran out just as the last folks queued up.
Huge thanks to Ian Brown for the organization of the event and to the many who contributed time and effort.
