Pictures from the Preparations for Wings & Wheels

Gerry Crapo dumped 10 yards of road mulch behind the club to be used for filling the holes where we park planes during our annual event.  Chris Palmer provided his bucket equipped tractor, with operator Verne, to do the “wheelbarrowing”. Ed Boon, Steve Stewart and Ton DuCrocq supplied the manpower for spreading the gravel. The result is a safe field for taxiing aircraft for our May 27 Wings and Wheels event.
