October 8, 2016BAMS' Fall Fun Fly was a great success, thanks to Frank's tireless efforts. Everyone enjoyed the flying and food. Our AMA District VIII VP, Ed Valls, attended and presented the club's Silver Leader Club certificate and plaque. BAMS is proud to join the other 150 Leader clubs across America. Check out the AMA article here and take a look at the video below. More pictures will be posted in the Gallery soon.
August, 2016Work on our field improvements has produced great results. The field has been widened, taxiways added, and a sun/weather shelter has been built. Plus, Chris and his crew have manicured the site to golf course standards. Check out this aerial view. A big shout-out to all those members that worked on this project during the summer heat!
