Our club meeting was a great success despite the chilly temperature of 40 degrees. Twenty nine members where in attendance including our newly elected vice president Sam Indilicato

 

Many joined in the precision landing game and the 1st place trophy went to our fearless leader Dick Zisa. There were many close calls and near crashes in the attempt to win this game! Great entertainment.

Our ribbon combat included one mid-air collision and two crashed that resulted in minor damage for two planes. The contest was won by George Cooper.

All in all it was a great day!
