Winter Haven National Flyin

It was another nice weather year at Winter Haven. The storms enroute weren't too bad and most folks were able to arrive without difficulty. It was great to see the Cardinal Flyers get out in the spring once again.

I'll let the pictures tell the story with a few notes. Thanks to Debbie, Peter Carter and Jacque LaValle who all shared a number of very nice photos which they took during the event. It was great to have a large number of photos to choose from.

The event started on Saturday evening with the social gathering at Faye and Palmer's house. A good crowd arrived and enjoyed the outstanding appetizers from Chef Todd which we have become accustomed to over the years.
