You read so good!

Specially after today... it's still snowing out there.  I was just going to take wheels, but now I'll pop in a plane on skis.

I just changed a plane from floats to wheels. We;;, at least they're huge tundra-style wheels.

I'll bring 2 planes, anyway, one with floats.

Or bring one plane that you can hand launch. Regardless, it is fun to fly on New Years Day! 

Last New Year's Day as I recall, Michael was the first in the air.  I think I was first to crash and take a walk in the field.  Or was that the year before?

Does this sound like a challenge?

I’m coming for my first, first day of the New Year fun fly on the first day of the new decade. That’s a first!  ;D

A great day!!  13 members showed up at Tim's, 17 showed up at the field and then 9 went back to Tim's for a top-up.

Tim's before the 10 am trip to the field.

Photo 77- Rob D. cannot manage a smile.  The rest of us were fine!
Photo 79- the other victims.

At the field:

Photo 83- David, Rob D. (after fixing his smiling mechanism), George
Photo 84- Jim and Gary C.
Photo 87- Simon enjoying his first New Year's Funfly, ready to launch Gerald's new Bixler.
Photo 88- Glenn and Greg
Photo 91- Carlos and his first crash or "a normal Warwing landing".  It ejects parts.
Photo 92- David, George, Bruce, Glenn and Carlos... our brain trust. ;)

New Year- a fashion statement

81- Gerald with a tacky sweater and bathing suit.  He considers them an upgrade.
82- Andy with his tacky bathing suit.  A definite upgrade for him.
85- BJ not only wearing a bathing suit in the snow but white after labour day!
86- Gerald still smiling while wearing tacky stuff.

Clearly their mothers don't dress them any more.  ;D
