Beautiful day for flying the FCC Poker Run

A big Thank You to all the pilots, volunteers and the airports, who participated in our 2017 Poker Run. You were part of making our chapter fundraiser a success yesterday.

We had several 99s members flying from East Ontario, Maple Leaf and First Canadian Chapters flying, along with pilots from across southern Ontario airports.

There were 35 airplanes registered, 394 poker hands sold, raising $2400 plus another $76.50 from our 50/50 draw.
