First flight

Congratulations to Tom Hopper on his first flight in his new LS-1. Here's a picture of his first touchdown:

Tikes on Trikes

A PMSC Glider Ride was donated to the Tikes on Trikes Silent Auction last Saturday. It was a benefit for the Child Care Center in Norwich. The winning bid was $95. There were three other bids over the retail value of $70. It was the only item in the auction that went for more than the retail value. The PMSC got a little exposure.


It has started

Congratulations to Tony for the club's first XC flight of the new season. He recorded 126 km in central Florida yesterday and hopes to do better today. Stay tuned.
