A note about our guild icon
2003, Dayton, Ohio celebrated the 100th anniversary
of the Wright brothers first flight, an event commemorated
on the Dayton city flag at the right. The sculpture
at RiverScape in the photo below from the Dayton-Montgomery
County Convention and Visitor's Bureau depicts the
Wright Flyer. We used the Wright Flyer as our guild
icon because it is identifiably Dayton.
