anniversary launch is in the history books! Rescheduled
3 times and finally held about a month later than expected, it
turned out to be a great day! On the plus side, the
delays allowed us to get the new Celtic Thunder kit into
production so that we could have them at the anniversary
launch (something we were not expecting).
launch is always fun for me as the wonderful folks at CMASS
make an extra effort to bring their FlisKits models to fly and
show off. The result is that I get to spend the entire
day hearing one or another of my kits announced over the PA
system. That's always fun!
Sales were brisk
and the early morning rain gave way to mostly blue skies with
mild winds. All in all, a great fly day. We had
reduced numbers, but that is not surprising. The
rescheduling of the anniversary launch coupled with a poor
weather report (right up till the morning of the launch)
certainly kept some folks away.
We had our
traditional anniversary cake on hand (much to the delight of
everyone there!) and I also had fun with the UFFO Streamer
demonstration, which is always fun and exciting.
A great day, a
great year and an incredible decade! Now to figure out
how to top this for the NEXT 10 years! Enjoy the
pictures and see you at the next launch!
