Now is a great time to decide what to do

To the question of what does Joe want to do? Joe wants to finish what he started and either sell the skip loader to the club (if and when they decide they want it), or sell it on the open market when he can no longer afford to keep it (no sooner than June 25th). So you see nothing's changed. I'm no...

Windsports is not Acme Equipment Rental

To answer Don's question I have not spoken to Joe about this. When he bought the equipment it was clear to me that he was not interested in owning it long term and if the club didn't buy it he would sell it. Joe perhaps can continue with the situation as is for some time. My personal opinion is that...

Greblo's Skip loader

I am sure most everyone is aware the Joe Greblo purchased a skip loader last year which he has been using to improve our L/Z. At his own expense with no prompting from anyone he has made our L/Z a much safer place to land and saved it from destructive storm waters at least twice. I personally don't ...

Let's Stop Throwing Fuel onto the Fire

Doug, I really like flying and I get enough policy and procedure at work. Can we keep posts related to flying at least as far as this thing between Bob, Barton, Brad, et. all.

Kinda sucks seeing new posts on it all the time.

This sucks

I get it. A bunch of guys don't like each other. I am sure at some point this all started with good intentions, but now very little of anything is coming of this, other than really bumming me out.

So can you do me a favor and fight somewhere else.

What has been going on

It is good that this topic has been brought up. When this project began it was the firm belief that we could not even build a gazebo without a Conditional User Permit (CUP). Obtaining a CUP is not a fast process, nor is it cheap costing more that 10k and taking the better part of a year. In most cas...

Why We All Should Be Behind the Gazebo Project

For a number of years, the club has operated under the assumption that our use of our land as a hang gliding L/Z was not valid and that we needed a Conditional Use Permit. That was our initial track on the Gazebo project and our initial efforts seemed to confirm this requirement. We therefore brough...

A Really Good Guy

I didn' t know Walter well having only met him a few times, but I had an occasion recently to ride up the hill with him recently. He spoke about his life and career. He worked on city contracts as an independent contractor building water tanks and on other engineering related projects. He said that ...

I had spoken directly to the nominees which I mentioned and new of their interests, but hope that my information does not discourage you or the other nominees. I know we all would like to ...

Director's at Large

It is very good to see so many members interested in helping the club by volunteering to work on the board. Unfortunately not everyone can be on the board. I never thought I would be saying those words. Though all of the members that have had their hat thrown in would be welcome additions, I do have...

Skygeek, I will use your post for the agenda

I will put on the agenda for the board to consider the installation of this equipment and the reimbursement for expenses not covered by contributions should the unit work and meet requirements to be specified during board discussion.

We Need to Try Something Different

What is easy for some is not so easy for others. Lawyers and engineers like or even love working with documents, everyone else does not. Pancakes are simple, I don't think BJ would have gotten out so easy if he was asking for money and wanting to put equipment up, see your questions and Larry's due ...

Chip - I was not putting forth an arguement against

Bottom line this is all a waste of time if the thing won't work in the first place so figure out a plan on how to test it. I use the wireless network. I think a web cam at the L/Z would be a good idea. I have been frustrated about the lack of signal at the L/Z. We should be considerate of others whi...

Are We All in Agreement That We Want to Hear You Now?

I just want to pose a few questions: 1. Does everyone really need to be reachable absolutely everywhere they go? 2. Isn't there something good about not hearing cell phones ringing and not hearing people having conversations on cell phones at least somewhere in our lives? 3. Is it really that import...
