Special Announcements

January's fly-in will be Movie Night. On January 10, we'll be going to see "Unbroken", the movie about Louie Zamperini's life. Restaurant and theater information to follow, but save the date now.



DSC02543-5895The first fly-in or rather drive-in of 2015 was a lot of fun! Good thing we did a drive-in because the weather was overcast and rainy.   We had a great turn out with about 50 DAFers going to see the movie "Unbroken" and 37 dining at the Red Onion.  The movie was really hard to watch but I think we all were glad we saw it.  There is absolutely no doubt that Louis Zamperini was a  hero.  The Mexican dinner was very good and I think we all had a great time.  Thanks for coming!  Liz and Peter

 

IMG 2049-5885The Annual Holiday Party was a great success, with over 60 people attending. The DAF house band, The Time Machine Band, provided an assortment of tunes that got the DAFers out on the floor, and the PV Golf Club was a perfect venue. It was fun to see friends dressed up for the occasion,  and made for a wonderful end to another year of comaraderie.

 

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!)

 

The 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.
