Find the Piper Cub Contest at Moose Jaw WDM

The WDM Piper Cub has landed! Can you find it in the Museum? It can land on a dime so it could be anywhere. 

If you can find it, tell us where on an entry form and enter it for the draw. If your answer is correct you could win your very own plush Piper Cub.

The Piper Cub lands in a different spot every month so keep coming back! Find out more about the Piper Cub Contest -->
