AJX LZ - Club BBQ - Sunday May 28, 2017

Please join us in the landing zone for a club sponsored dinner. We are celebrating the end of a fantastic membership year and are looking forward to the next. As you may remember all memberships expire May 31st. Our monitor, Thelma, will be around if you would like to sign up for next year and have a cheese burger on us!

Also a big shout out to Mike and his family from Mountain Hardware in Wrightwood. They have generously donated 30 new chairs and some garden hoses to the landing zone. Super nice!

Hope to see you tomorrow evening!
