"Scare in the Air" inter-club event, UFO vs Signal Seekers, Sept 26, 2020

Saturday Sept 26, 2020, was a very memorable day that will be long remembered by many. On that date, 14 (7 per side) of the finest flyers in the State of Michigan fiercely competed for the 10th time for the famous "Scare in the Air" inter club trophy. Flying skills and emotions were on the highest levels as the lead changed 3 times prior to the final event, the famous "egg bomb drop." The UFO members heroically rose to the occasion and dominated this event by taking 1st thru 6th places. The much honored "Scare in the Air" trophy thus changed hands once again, and will be proudly displayed by the UFO for the entire coming year. 

I would like to thank Scott, Greg and Bill for helping me with this memorable event. A special thanks also goes to Jim for the fantastic job he did as "Chef" in preparing the feast we all shared together. Pictures are provided, below, so that we can relive this memorable day over and over again in the future. Please note the extreme emotions on many of the faces, a clear indication of the importance of this day in both clubs history.

 The  1st Rich Utkan Memorial fly was an overwhelming success. Great weather, great food and great friendships all contributed to an extremely successful event.  Over 40 aircraft and helicopters were flown during the event. The food was  fantastic  with a great variety of items being available.  A special thanks to Ken Wade for being a fantastic  BBQ cook.  I'm am sure Rich was with us during his memorial day and was extremely pleased at being honored. If you were there, you can relive the wonderful day via the pictures that captured many aspects of the day.  If you were not, then please join us for a picture review and make sure you make it next year.

Thank you Rick I couldn't have said it better myself.

I am so glad that we had such good weather, a good turnout of friends, and a great flying event.  I am very proud of our club for hosting such a great event.  I look forward to the 2021 event with much anticipation.
