ChristmaParty 2011

We had our annual Club Christmas Party at the TPI building this year.  We had a bring your own bottle (BYOB) and mix , many of us did have a few drinks. What better way to loosen everyone up.  All the guys learned the other guys wife's name again, we do this every year. Klein's Catering served the food which was very good.   We had a program scheduled this year, Bill Holland ( a former Club member & Club President and now District 8 VP)  gave us an up date on AMA news and a slide show presentation.   I gave him several pictures of past SPADS Club activities, events, airshows, Airshow Team members and flying event around the country.  Very entertaining, it's fun to look back at some of places we have been.   Gene & Chris also set up a ruffle, 2 airplanes (one bought by the club and one donated by a member who wishes not to be named)  were raffled off.   Dallas won the small electric Champ, I am not sure who won the larger one.  Great idea, it added to the club treasury.   The Secret Santa was a lot of fun!   Everyone brought a his & hers gift, given a ticket and as tickets were drawn, you picked a gift. If you wanted you could take someone else's gilt, but the gift could only be taken three times.   The wine, booze, tools were passed around quit a bit, but Kenny was stuck with the tong for men.  We all had a great time, it was fun.   Gene Hunt (New Club President and Chris Hooley VP) did a great job for this years Christmas Party.  Thanks Guys !   We are ready for spring time to get here for another flying season and "Another Fine Day at the Flying Field".

I didn't add any captions under the pictures, you can add your own.
