FRM CELEBRATES 60 YEAR ANNIVERSARY.
On October 21, 2017 the FRM celebrated their 60th anniversary; prefacing the event with an open swap meet and followed with an honor to Milt Post’s legacy and his family who attended. Milt was one of the original FRM founding members and passed away this last spring. The swap meet was successful along with some of the fun fly events of the day. The day however was not without several mishaps; as, some pilots pushed their craft to the edge as they attempted the various events (limbo, longest hands-off-controls flight, and most loops in 1 minute). The events proved for some spectacular flying and recovering. Sympathy for those who lost aircraft this day.
The dinner was excellent, prepared by members and kudos to Bobbie and Craig for the tri-tip.
The evening concluded with several members taking their craft up in the dark and landing them to fly another day.
There was otherwise a nice aerial demonstration of a paraglider put on by one of FRMs members, Scott. For more info on the paragliders check out Black Hawk Paramotors ; or ask Scott or John for more first hand info.
FRM would like to thank all those who came out and attended and to remember those that were unable to attend and have paved the way for FRM to exist.
