The private certificated pilot was preparing to land on a gravel airstrip at dusk. The pilot said flat lighting conditions were present, and during the landing touchdown, the airplane bounced toward the right. She said she aborted the landing, added full power, and the airplane veered to the left while climbing. The airplane collided with a lighted wind indicator assembly, located along the left side of the airstrip, about halfway down the 2,200 feet long strip. The airplane received damage to the propeller, the left landing gear strut, the leading edge of the left wing, and a left wing rib. The pilot landed the airplane without further incident.

Probable Cause: The pilot's inadequate compensation for a bounced landing, and failure to maintain directional control of the airplane. A factor in the accident was flat lighting conditions.
