Pumpkin Drop hosted by Vanderhoof Flying Club

Vanderhoof Flying Club hosted a pancake breakfast followed by a Pumpkin Drop at the municipal airport on Nov. 2.

Members of the club and other participants had a fun morning being treated by the club to sausages, pancakes and more.

After breakfast, the pumpkin drop began where participants tried to throw carved pumpkins into a target which was on the field at the Airport.

Dave Fehr was also recognized for his assistance in providing the Flying Club with a float dolly, for moving float planes on land.

Here is a photo gallery of the day’s events.
