June 2 & 3, 2018 was...

...the annual Stetson Ed Rae Memorial Fun Fly Event!

In spite of the wind, we had 42 registered pilots and at one point on Saturday we had 73 persons in attendance.

Big thanks to Great Hobbies and Orleans Hobbies for their generous contribution of a total of 6 gift certificates for the pilots in attendance.

Also, special thanks to the executive members who always help organizing this event and to our dedicated registration and canteen workers Sue MacDonald, Jim Denyer, Claude Dostaler, Jessica Dawson and Jonathan Harper who did an excellent job.

We had the opportunity to see several types of aircraft, jets, helicopters and multirotors. Lunch hour saw a fantastic special 3D demonstration flight by Gabriel Muglia and a free style flying sequence with music by Pierre Menard.

We also presented the People Choice Award trophy to Don Glandon, for his beautiful Beast biplane.

MANY THANKS to all involved!

January 1, 2018 was...

...the annual Stetson First Fly Event!

This year's First Fly event was the coldest on record with the temperature recorded (by Dan at 6:30am) of -32C, -39C with wind chill. It was cold enough that a gas engine threw a rod and Hal's camera (brand supressed) autofocus froze.

13 brave souls showed up to compete for the all important 'first to fly' honor.

Many thanks to Dan, the executive, Hal & Sue for field prep, rice crispies and the essential hot coffee courtesy of Casselman McDonalds.

Special thanks to our sponsors Great Hobbies and McDonalds.

Enjoy the pictures.

March 3, 2018 was...

...the annual Stetson Winter Fun Fly Event!

How do you describe a Canadian winter flying event? ...cool... ehhh

A warm morning (6.5C compared to the 1st Flight of the year, but a stiff cross wind just to make things interesting and keep you on your toes..... rudder lads, rudder.

What a great way to spend a morning, flying with friends at a great club; how can one not enjoy themselves; warm shelter, hot coffee, Sue's chili, buns and coffee and the same rule still applies - sure beats a warm day at work anytime!

A special thanks to our sponsors Great Hobbies and Orleans Hobbies, and volunteers who braved the elements to make this another great Stetson Flyers event.

Thanks guys and gals, your time and effort greatly appreciated - you make these events happen!

Weather

The St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic High School in Russell... weather station is back up and running and according to John Jackson, and is finally a 24/7 operation. That's great news for us as we are unsure whether we will have luxury of Dave Colpits on-site system this year. St. Thomas Aquinas CHS is 9.8km SSE of the Stetson field.
