Happy 40th Birthday SOSA

Last Saturday SOSA celebrated 40 years of flying at Rockton.

The celebration took place after the flying was done for the day (see photos below courtesy Andrea Kuciak) and the evening was spent in some obvious fun and games. Apparently golf was popular and Mike Sury reports that the winner Tomas Rezek edged past Angie Wilson to capture a free dinner for him and his family by driving the ball closest to the pin .... It was wonderful to see such a great turn out says Mike who did all the organizing. Marc Thomson brought his model aircraft which were admired by Andrew Corrigan and offspring. The dinner celebrations were a complete success with hamburgers hotdogs and even a huge birthday cake. If anyone knows who made this please add a comment to the bottom of this post.

Thanks to Pat O'Donnell for the great memories on film. The evening was capped by a huge burst of colourful fireworks. We shouldnt need to wait for 40 years to do this - how about an annual birthday event?
