IMG 0047November's program crowned the winner of this year's Mystery Fly-In. There was some suspense, along with a fair amount of misdirection and obfuscation, but in the end  the award went (again) to Larry and Jodie Chapman. Larry's protest of one particularly convoluted question was cut off when it was pointed out that the winner of any protest has to write the test next year! Thanks to the Mystery Fly-in Committee for coming up with a quiz that even Google couldn't provide all the answers to.

(The photo's from last year... they "forgot" to bring the trophy back this time. Talk about confidence!)

 

IMG 1302-5679The Mystery Fly-in came off without a hitch as about 26 DAFers in 9 planes made the trip to Perris for lunch. After answering the critical questions on the quiz correctly in order to find out the destination, they dodged parachute jumpers and jump planes to get to the Bomb Shelter Cafe for an excellent lunch. There was one go-around in deference to a jump plane asserting local right-of-way, but otherwise we were welcomed in, and had a great view the the jumpers landing right across the runway. The weather cooperated by breaking up just in time for our departure. All in all, another fine trip.

Thanks to the Mystery Committee for creating the quiz and setting up the trip. Volunteers are always welcome to help organize fly-ins, and ideas for future fly-ins are always welcome. Don't hesitate to contact any member of the board.

 

Taos-Pueblo-New-MexicoThe DAF Board has started planning the 2015 fly-ins, and it's going to be another great year. Here's a preview to start your planning. Dates and more information will follow as they are finalized.

January 10th: Dinner and a Movie! If you haven't seen the movie about Louie Zamperini's life, "Unbroken", join us for a movie and dinner. Restaurant and theater locations to follow.

February: Lunch fly-in to the historic Mission Inn in Riverside. Link to the Inn's website here.

March: Larry is working on a combined camping/hotel trip for the central coast. More info to come.

May:  Flagstaff, AZ. A weekend trip Should be beautiful that time of year.

June 5-7: Taos, New Mexico. A picturesque town of historic buildings, museums, art galleries, and the Rio Grande Gorge Bridge. A weekend trip, and probably worth an extra day or two as well!

July: The annual Flaming Brisket Fly-in to Agua Dulce. Bring your appetite and a side. Mitch will be bringing plenty of slow smoked beef brisket.

August: The DAF Annual Hangar Party, so no fly-in. Plenty of fun though, so don't miss it.

October: Columbia, CA for a weekend fly-in. Once again, camping on the field, with a hotel for those who'd rather have modern amenities.

November: The Mystery Fly-in returns. Still trying to figure it out!

December: No fly-in, the Christmas Party will be the place to be.

 

The OctobDSC 0705-5650er program was a preview screening of a short documentary, "Our Piece of the Sky", on the experiences of female pilots. Jessie Davidson, who just graduated from the Master of Visual Anthropology program at the University of Southern California, created this film and discussed her original ideas in making it, as well as the changes that ensued as her conceptions were changed by the experiences and feelings of the pilots she interviewed.  A thoughtful and well balanced film was the result.
