A warm morning (6.5°C 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!

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.
