Fourth of July Weekend DEMO DAYS!

Stacy and Don Murdoch and Liz Fortanier are hosting our Fourth of July Party. This year we will celebrate on Saturday July 3rd with an awesome rock and roll band out of Burmingham (where Don owns a guitar store so you know he has some great connections), a catered dinner and kegs. Dinner includes bbq chicken, green beans, new potatoes, squash casserole, salad, french bread, peach and blackberry pies, and tea. All of this for $10 a person

The Fourth of July weekend is also our Wills Wing Demo Days. Steve Pearson will be here with gliders to fly and information to give. For more info on Demo Days go here.

We will also have a Landing Clinic at 1pm Sunday 7/4. This clinic is taught by Dan and will take place at the LZ clubhouse.
