Sorry for the long delay, this years meeting went well, we had 8 members make it in, the wx was a bit questionable but Ironranger was able to fly in just as some light flurries started. it got a bit heavier for a couple hours during our lunch and the sky gods were watching over us, as the snow quit and visibility went to 10+ AF-91 finally made it to this years meet after his many threats of previous years I'll load a couple pics when I have more time.
