Fly-In lands big response with planes, cars, dropping lots of t-shirts
The annual Fly-In/Drive-In at Weyland Field north of Killdeer overcame low clouds Saturday for a big response which pleased the organizers.
Approximately 300 people showed up for the event which combined planes, local show cars and an equipment display set up by the Dunn County Sheriffs Office next to the hangar.
In addition to a meal, the organizers also had drawings for prizes.
There was repeated drops of t-shirts in the afternoon, along with a golf ball drop.
When it came to the golf ball drop, it was Willie Sargent and his daughter, Alyx, who won, followed by Marty Sandvick in second and Fran Bell in third place.
The deputies attending the Fly-In/Drive-In drew a steady stream of people interested in seeing what they would carry on their vests, in addition to other equipment they use.
