June Events

by Jerry Walters   June 29, 2017

I had the pleasure to attend two events in June.
The Larks club in Sulphur, La., celebrated an early Model Aviation Day because of scheduling conflicts with the official day coming in August. The flying was great and I got to renew old acquaintances and meet a bunch of new avid modelers.
The Aeromodelers of Acadiana in Breaux Bridge celebrated their first annual Warbird event. Starting with a raising of the flag by a local Boy Scout troop and ending with a great home cooked jambalaya feast. Warbird enthusiasts from as far away as Monroe, La., Sulphur, Beaumont, Houma, New Orleans and many others had a great time. Looks like this was the first of many to come.
The summer rains, heat, and humidity are setting in and I suspect the frequency of events will slow down for a few months. I'm not wishing my life away but looking forward to an early, cool fall.
