The Kingston Ultralight Club’s (COPA Flight 109) annual fly-in and weekend camp-in was a rousing success.
Forty airplanes showed up over the course of the threeday event and even Patrick Gilligan v-p of operations from COPA flew in.
Don Gravelle from the Gananoque sky diving group parachuted in both days. Helicopter rides were offered for about three hours on Saturday, and a fellow from a local Napanee, Ontario radio station showed up to provide a bit of exposure for the event. We think that was the reason why a surprising number of the public showed up.
Howard Vaughn and Joanne were kind enough to operate the canteen. Art Ottenhof and his wife Barb organized the pork loin and rib dinner that even ing. The food was outstanding. There were a lot of volunteers to make this event happen, and everyone had a really good time.
The Camden East (CCE6), field is located about 10 miles northwest of the Kingston airport and plays host to the Kingston Ultralight Club (a member of UPAC).
