On Sunday December 10, the club’s Kids Christmas party was well-attended. Thanks to everyone who attended. Special thanks to Susan Sieber, Dirk Sieber, Ruth Wiebe, Ken Campbell, Ledell Kendall and anyone we missed (sorry!) for helping make the event a memorable one for the kids.
It was a dark and stormy Saturday morning. The weather was so bad that not even the birds where flying. So what should a pilot do? A group of volunteers came out on Saturday morning (December 2, 2017) and had the first of several work parties. We worked, talked and had some good laughs from 10:00 till around 13:00 with several of the volunteers coming and going throughout this time. This party included general clean-up around the flight room, bar area, kitchen and the back storage area by the furnace room. We also removed a faulty switch in the electrical room. Smoke detectors were installed in the lounge, meeting room, and the kitchen. A couple guys looked at the ice maker and hot water tank and we will have a plumber come and do some adjustments to the hot water tank as well as help us temporarily relocate the ice maker while we fix some plumbing issues in the bar area. A picture was hung up in the flight room that was donated to us earlier in the year. A big thank you to the volunteers who came out on Saturday morning. They consisted of Chris Palmer, Richard Bauch, Clark Closkey, Warren LeGrice, Andy Halichuck, Ken Campbell, Devin Campbell (and his 2 children), Randy Kelly, Duncan Poynton and Bob Bryan. Also thank you to Warren and Ken for bringing donuts. This won’t be the last of the work parties. There will be another towards the end of March when the weather improves where we will be focusing on the outside of the building.
Two interesting videos featuring the Aeroprakt A22 Foxbat. The first is a local BC pilot enjoying flight around local BC mountains. The second video shows flying an amphibious version in New Hampshire.
