January 1st this year was almost tropical to the weather we have had recently. Mid 50's, fog and drizzle. Flying, friends and food, what more could you ask for this time of the year. More than 30 members showed up and at least 20 made New Years Day flights!

Some photos from the December meeting held at the Danville United Methodist Church in Danville. Lots of good food, good friends and prizes, what more can you ask for? And, nice bunch of items to support the food pantry that supports Hendricks County.
