Aside from some really cold temperatures this winter has been a relatively mild one. Still there No excuse for anyone not to get a chance to try their hand at indoor flying.

These new planes can be picked up right here in town at Trains and Things. Come join us and keep your skills sharp while keeping your fingers warm.
