On Saturday, October 12th, the Freedom Flight Park hosted its annual "Thanksgiving Bomb Drop and Spot Landing Potluck Fiesta"! It's the last official flying event of the season and although we had overcast skies, the conditions were perfect for the task at hand. The "Flour Bomb Drop" consists of attempting to drop a bomb (a brown bag with baking flour in it) onto our newly made target from the 2019 National Spot Landing competition (see the last blog entry). Once pilots had dropped their ordinance, they then attempted to spot land on a designated target.
Congratulations to the following winners:
During the awards ceremony, it was announced that there was a new annual award known as the "Incoming Award". Inspired by Granny, a flight park personality who passed away last year, the award recognizes a new pilot who contributes to the flight park through their volunteering efforts, enthusiasm to fly and being a welcome addition to the flying community. The award itself is an amazing piece of bead work that Granny spent hours creating. The inaugural winner is Steve Warshawski, a paragliding pilot who graduated back in May. Steve spent many hours working on improving Cooper's launch and helping out around the park. Congratulations Steve!!
Thanks to all pilots and friends who came out for the event. Have a good winter and see you next year!
