June 29 – Kick-Off – Abbotsford to Tofino

Yesterday we met at the Abbotsford Flying Club to head to Tofino. The Abbotsford Airport gave us a send off with a water cannon salute from their fire trucks. That was a real nice touch.

Two other club pilots flew to Victoria for breakfast, planning to fly onward to Tofino. The breakfast was good as usual at the Victoria Flying Club. Sad to say the weather did not cooperate and we couldn’t make it in due to fog, low visibility and low ceilings. So the plan now is to have the flag for our trip to Victoria tomorrow and dip the flag in the water in from to the Legislature Building.
