The 4th of July was a really hot one this year, not many flyers out enjoying the low 90's/high humidity. And, Jon Dieringer and family along with Parker Hall and Rege Hall were about the only ones who enjoyed the evening. Jon had a neat little drop box to drop parachutes for his kids to chase. Parker provided a r/c helicopter demo flight and showed Jon's family some wild FPV flying with a small screen. There were many warbirds out during the 4th and 5th, check out the link to the 2020 virtual Warbird Fly In page.

Rege Hall's Addiction.

1-Jan-2020, our first event of the New Year, and what a good one it was. The day started out in the lower 30's and by 1 pm, we experienced 44 degrees for a high. The winds were mostly light with moments of gusts, but certainly flyable. Today saw the largest New Years Day crowd I memory. Lots of flying, lots of food and lots of hangar flying. The field is a little mushy from rains over the weekend, but generally I good shape. We also welcomed several new members to our club. Congratulations if you got a flight in today, means it is going to be good year!

Photos from the December meeting held at the Danville United Methodist Church. A great venue, great people and great food! We had 80 people enjoy a wonderful dinner and fellowship. Ashlee Walls from HVAF joined us and we were able to present our big check to her from our NMAD fly in. She shared words with us about HVAF and some of the items they are doing to assist Hoosier veterans. We had a bunch of happy "participation" raffle winners again this year as we were able to have 15 drawing prizes. The highlight of the light was all the hats, mittens, scarves and gloves we were able to provide for Christmas items to church's outreach program.

Our 2019 MAD R/C airshow to benefit Hoosier Veterans Association is a success! This is probably the best weather we have had for the 7 years we have held this event. The day started with Bernie Kruse, VP of support for HVAF, and a veteran, joining a group of our members who are also veterans to raise the flag. Specially cool was that we have a WWII veteran in our club, Leo Tarplee, it was a breath taking moment to see Leo stand at attention and salute during the national anthem ad flag raising. Also attending our event from HVAF was Ashlee Walls, VP Advancement, Raden Miller, Supervisor and his grandson. Senator John Crane and his two sons also visited. The two young me both got a chance to fly a Apprentice trainer plane. Hendricks Couty Sheriff Brett Clark also paid us a visit.

THANKS to all who helped make this event a success and to our guests who came to fly with us. We had 39 pilots register to fly and over 100 aircraft either flying or on dispaly. We had a large number of spectators all throughout the day and sold over 150 pulled pork and pulled chicken lunches. A lot of youngsters got a chance to fly a trainer as well as watch a large variety of r/c aircraft during noon airshow demos. Check back for an account of how much money we were able to raise for the HVAF.

The 2019 Avon Spring Fling is now in the history books. The event started a week late, sunny and a little cool. Good turnout for this event today. There was lots of spectators at various times during the day and a huge variety of planes. Timbers were the most numerous, 3 Maules and a couple warbirds. Largest was Dave Miller's Cessna 150 and John Louden's Turbo Duster. All in all, there were many flights logged today and everyone enjoyed the day. Thank you to Ron Thompson for bringing his gator like vehicle and hauling everyone and thier aircraft to and from the parking lot. Alos, thanks to Avon Parks and Scott Black for promoting this event.
