Thanks everyone for flying in or driving in to the Sundre Airport for the Sundre Flying Club Fly-in Breakfast held on Sunday, May 10. The Registration showed an official count of 78.

However, Sheldon Valentine's count was 114, which beat the previous record of 104. But according to Jenn who was on cash, 580 breakfasts were served. What a Day and what a fabulous show of aircraft for us on the front registration: Bruce Goodwin, Ria White and Norma Bicknell, while the fellas toiled behind the three BBQ's. See you all at the COPA National in Springbank and Calgary July 17 - 19, 2009.
