Saturday August 24th afternoon and evening

We plan to start the day with fantastic flying or a least all that we can control.

The festivities will start with spot landings and flour accuracy.

Dinner will be a general BBQ with BBQ steak cooked for you. Fresh Ontario Corn on the cob .... PEI baked potato with sour cream / butter. .... Aunt Joyce's Bean Salad with fresh dinner rolls. Starting around 6 to 7

Desert will be Peach crisp from fresh Ontario peaches with Ice Cream. (2 options of regular OR a gluten free with no added sugar) Welcome to try both.

ENTERTAINMENT will be provided by Wayne Macdonald on guitar and singing all the songs we know or at least should know.

Bring your spouse and members remember to talk about their interests.... they have heard all the gliding stories before.

Let's get family back into the club. Last minutes always welcome but advance notice GREATLY APPRECIATED.

Thanks on behalf of Cole Bishop

Or, if you have been curious, come for the Bronze Badge, introduction to cross-country at 09:30.

Those who've gone there will attest that there's no more satisfying form of gliding.
