From the New Millenium (Year 2000)

Click on the thumbnail below left to see a full size shot) of the first three flyers, along with their assistants, of the New Millennium taken at about 11:00 a.m. on New Years Day, Year 2000.  That day turned out to be fairly warm and windy. Temperature about 3° Celsius (or 38° Fahrenheit.)  There were cash prizes for the first three flyers in the air after an official start time of 10:00 a.m.  Gas and electric entries were excluded from the prize money since they would have an unfair advantage in being much easier to start than glow engines.

The First Three of 2000 Jean-Louis Ferndriger was first up. He is third from the right with his daughter to the left;  Edward Astudillo was second, far right, who flew Jack Johnson's plane, standing next to him, and Don Gillion was third, far left with his son Chris, to the right.

The Whole Gang of 2000 Click on the thumbnail on the right to see a full size shot of most of the members who turned out for the First Frozen Finger Fun Fly of the New Millennium. Notice the beautiful day and the excellent turnout. Yours truly took the picture.
