GMA Family Day 2016 - Saturday August 13

Everyone is invited to visit the GMA Airfield to enjoy a great day of flight, friendships, and fun with lunch thrown in!
All GMA members should plan to fly, have lunch with friends, watch and participate in our air show, and enjoy our great GMA Airfield.  GMA club members may bring family and friends for a free hamburger and hotdog lunch.  This is our biggest day of the year! We want everyone to have a chance to fly or just sit and enjoy.  See the agenda below to see where your style of flight might fit in, or just plan to bring the family, lawn chairs,  sun screen & glasses.

Everyone is asked to help in a few of ways.  First, please pre-register so we have a good headcount for lunch.  Second, bring a few extra dollars to donate to the Disable American Veterans through our 50/50 raffle.

Also, please pitch in by volunteering to help make the event happen with cooking and prep or on our event safety team.
