August 2017 Social

I forgot to post about it, but last month we had a great time at the Hendersonville airport for our “meeting”.

We’re doing it again this month. 6pm on Tuesday August 8th at Anthony and Jon’s hangar.

Bring your own burgers or whatever you want to put on a grill and maybe a side to share. Also might want to bring yourself a chair, but we seemed to have enough last time.

We’ll provide grills and drinks.
