2014 News Years Flyin

At 11 degrees, and a -5 windchill with ~10mph winds, it was indeed a frozen finger flyin! About a dozen of us braved the fierce winter to bring in the new year by boring holes in the sky. Unfortunately, the bitter temperatures prevented some of the engines from starting. Danny Osborn and Brian Thomas both got theirs running long enough for a flight. The rest of us warmed up the electrons and took the skies with our WMPF Makos. Sloppy Joes, Chili Dogs and chips were made by Roz, which everyone enjoyed! Thanks for coming out everyone! Pics are online here - http://www.flickr.com/photos/112847063@N04/sets/72157639322592914/
