A few SLRCFA members arrived at the club field on the morning of January 1st. Most brought aircraft to fly and entered the raffle to have a chance to have the first flight of the year at SLRCFA. Unlike New Year’s Day last year, most members had to jump from their car grab a quick flight and leave. It was a cold one.
The raffle for the first flight was held and Allen Main’s name was drawn. He had the honor of the first of the year flight last year with the same Parkzone T-28Allen flew for a few minutes and then was joined by several other eager pilots; Jim Henke, Jim Beerman, Bob Scheppele, and Ron Lawson. Each grabbed a couple of flight and left. It was simply too cold to fly.
