After much struggle, including our canceled ¡VIVA SANTA MARIA! contest, Chapter 26 held its first contest since 2016 at William J. Fox Filed in Lancaster, California. Despite the late date in November, FOXY FIGURES was deemed a success with 12 pilots competing in all five categories. Participants all agreed they loved the new location, and the Fox Field airport staff and tower controllers were wonderful to work with and kept things moving even as air attack tankers departed continuously to fight the Woosley Fire in Malibu.
