Airspace restriction

<t>I'm planning to go (RSVPd via email).<br/> <br/> I recall that airspace restriction was M-F on my airmap. We were there on a Wednesday, July 4, so Joe had to call to see if they needed that space.<br/> <br/> I think Eric and I should let someone else do the dummy service this time. I'm packing an...

Beach Party Food-related sign-up sheet

Wasn't that the greatest day last year?! The ocean swimming was tops! I'm going to organize the cooking again this year (and increase the quantities, so we can actually all eat). I thought it was great that people brought more-interesting side dishes, to augment the more-predictable ones I'll get at...

Funding, and social aspects

The club gets a lot of revenue from glider storage -- $200 per person or so, versus $60 dues. I noticed the ballot materials didn't quite point out that the Gazebo options that include storage actually pay for themselves over time (assuming that storage gets used). I think the bigger plan has the mo...

Value

I think the appearance of the flight park is likely a huge part of our neighbors' perception of us, and well worth efforts on our part. Related stories: I lived in a van quite successfully for 5 months, believing that appearances were pretty important to people's perceptions of me. I went for the "s...

On-line racing

I really like the posting of results on-line, so it makes it more of a head to head competition despite flying on different days. And I really like bragging about my own flights, so on-line gives me more reach for that. I thought it was a nice chunk of prize money last year and I was happy to win a ...

Recommended Ham Radio Licensing routes?

If you've found good routes to getting Ham radio licensed, please post them here. Particular on-line courses you thought were good?? I've not liked the old book from Radio Shack too much -- doesn't seem efficient.

Hmm...

I think you could be right, Don. I recently had "Monique Shultz" email arrange to meet me to see my for-sale car, twice, and no-show. Excellent character writing in retrospect -- deep, consistent backstory, and good choice of colloquial language. But finally I noticed a glitch in the writing, after ...
