In December, Carol and Rod welcomed us to their party room for our annual Christmas potluck and gift exchange! Thanks, Carol! We had a 99 visitor who is attending university here in Ottawa. Good food, company and conversation... what more could one want?
On November 10th, we gathered at the Rockcliffe Flying Club for our annual business meeting. After enjoying pizza and chocolate chip cookies, we settled down to look at the past year's activities and finances, and to plan out the upcoming year. We had a good exchange of ideas for meetings and fundraising opportunities - more to follow. Thanks everyone for your suggestions and for taking on activities for the 2008 year.

In September, Susan, Mo and Sharron organized and flew in the successful 2007 Gold Cup Air Rally, flying between Leamington, Ontario and Boulder Colorado.

Dorothy was elected as an International Trustee of the Amelia Earhart Memorial Scholarship Fund.
In August we "manned" a 99s booth at the National Aviation Museum as part of the 2007 Classic Air Rally displays. We offered part of our display area to the CWIA group, and got to share ideas, etc. with them.
