Fall Fling 2012

Fall Fling 2012

Hey everyone, Thought I would drop everyone a note and tell ya how the Fall Fling went this year.  We had over 30 members show up on a beautiful Florida November for some great flying.  Sky was bright blue with light winds from the East that put it right down the runway, one could not have asked for a nicer day.  A total of over 30+ members renewed their membership, and we had a couple new members signed up.  Several members who had previously renewed showed up to get their two Raffle Tickets.  Remember the Grand Prize is a Gift Certificate of $300.00 to Hobby World.  Special thanks to Hobby World for co-sponsoring the grand prize.  Remember if you already renewed or joined prior to the Fling, you may obtain your ONE Raffle Ticket at Hobby World 103rd St.  Any member renewing after the Fling will receive ONE Raffle Ticket.  Dave Keller now had the 2013 Gateway Club stickers for your 2013 AMA Card at Hobby World 103rd St, Events, and meetings.   A special sight at the field was Doc Jamie’s four engine (4-stroke) B-17.  As you will see in the photo’s that are attached to this email the B-17 got some attention.  Saturday was the Birthday of the Marines and Sunday was Veterans Day.  The field was closed during the event between 11am and 11:15am for a ceremony that was taking place at the V.A. cemetery.  Another good reason why we much watch our noise at the field, be a good neighbor.  It was great seeing so many members that I have not had the chance to see in a while.   I’ve been a...
