First fly of the year today for our club. Eight pilots and only one airplane escaped unscathed. I was the lucky pilot. We suffered everything from a broken vertical stab from a tip over to a complete total loss back to a broken carbon fiber landing gear. It was 24 degrees F. and about a 17 MPH wind from the west southwest. Sun and about 3 inches of snow to nothing depending on where it drifted. Some flew without skis. My skis worked as long as you were close to flying speed. LOL
