Re: Klipriver airfield Spring fly in breakfast 2 Sept.

Thanks to everyone who braved the less than perfect conditions to join us on Saturday. Was great to see some old faces and meet new ones. First time ever I've seen fixed wings arrive and depart before trikes :)
Hope to see all of you again for the next one.
Will post some photos shortly.
