47 pilots & plenty of spectators arrived and the great weather was certainly a factor in the events success.
We were visited by the MAAC president Rodger Williams and the People's Choice award went to Chris Malcomnson & his beautiful red & white Pitts biplane (see pictures).
Dan led the core of 9 volunteers who covered all the key roles with enthusiasm and capability... these folks really are the 'make or break' of our events... Thank you!
11 prizes were donated by Orleans hobbies, Great Hobbies and Dynamic Hobbies.
A great weekend of flying and friends!

...the Stetson Winter Fun Fly event!
Dan and his crew of volunteers were up early to arrange the second club event of the year... the Winter Fun Fly.
23 people arrived to fly off the perfectly smooth snow and ice covered runway in balmy -8C weather with a 10kph Westerly wind.
Many thanks to all that helped with the chilli lunch, it was appreciated after a couple of hours in the wind. Thanks also to McDonalds in Casselman (via Sue) whose coffee donation literally kept us alive!
A great day of flying and friends after such a long winter... come on summer!

...the Stetson First Fly event!
Happy Stetsons New Year!
I would like to thank Dan and the crew who were up very early this morning to get things ready for our 9 AM first flight event. The heat was on and all was in order!
First thing I saw as I pulled in was Hal MacDonald flying his kite! Does that count for first flight?
It was great to see so many familiar faces this morning and wish everyone a happy New Year.
Coffee, TimBits and a surprise bottle of bubbly (Denise's idea and insistence) from Gerry Nadon was enjoyed thoroughly by everyone.
(of course the bubbly was AFTER flying).
We managed to get them up at the appointed hour, and in spite of the stiff wind, everyone managed to land safely.
Shortly after, in the shelter, trophies were handed out for First Flight Electric (John Jackson) and First Flight Gas/Glow (and the only one...Gary Robertson).
The wind kept building as we stood inside the shelter feeling it rock back and forth in the big gusts. Glad we didn't have to go up in that! Once and done, except for our intrepid Mikey, who went out and had a second, and maybe even a third flight. Wow! Dedication? or...???
We shared lots of stories and expectations for the new year ahead, and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves!
I hope everyone had as much fun as we did on this New Year's morning, and I wish you all a great 2015!
Many thanks to Goose, our intrepid photog, for catching those great photos again!
