Dinner Meeting Reviews
The Del Amo Flyers started Christmas off with a bang, dancing and celebrating another great year. It was great to see everyone dressed up, and spirits were high (as well as flowing freely)! Palos Verdes Golf Club had the place looking festive, with decorations all around. In Contempt (the band, not our attitude) provided great dance music that got everyone out on the floor until the very end, and the food was very good. Many thanks to Patti LaGrelius for her efforts in making the arrangements; it was a job well done!
The 2018 DAF board was introduced, and we have some new blood this year. Kelvin Vanderlip has joined the board as Webmaster, Gary Palmer is the new Membership director, and Vince and Heather La Duca will be handling Dinner/Door. Patti LaGrelius has stepped up as President, taking over from Larry (who seems to think flying down from Placerville for every dinner and board meeting is a little much. What a wimp!). Mitch Taylor is now Treasurer (a scary thought), James Pavlick is the new Secretary, and Robert Beckwith has taken the reins at Fly-ins. Linda Howard will continue with Decorations, Maggie Smith and Laurice Churchill will keep up their great work with Programs, and Steve Sappington and Nancy Schunke are our Photographers. 
We're looking forward to another fantastic year, with some interesting programs and unique fly-in destinations. Happy New Year!
