During the coldest part of the winter, January through March, the "High Country Flyers" host a building night on the 2nd, and 4th Wednesday of each month at Parkview Activity Center, located at 500 McDonald St in North Kamloops. We gather together to help new comers, work on our projects and sometimes we simply sit and shoot the breeze.
In the winter of 2001, Project Coordinator 'Jim Millar' brought us the incredible "Gremlin project". We saw insulating foam and plastic down spouts come together to form a simple but excellent flying combat wing for about $25.00.
The 'High Country Combat Demonstration Team' performed at the IMAA Big Bird event to the cheers of the spectators with one onlooker calling it an "Aerial Ballet" A lot of fun for $25.00.
