1. Thank you to all who attended the gliding day. Unfortunately, due to the weather and time constraints, we were not able to get everyone up flying. I would like to thank our parents for their patience with regards to arrival time changes. This is the first time that we have done a 1 day gliding event with Brockville Flying site and we had to adjust our plan throughout the day. We have confirmed with our Zone that we will have another day in the spring. Those who attended and were not able to get flying will be automatically added to the list for this activity. Further details will come as we get closer to the date.
