Such a well-reasoned and helpful reply. It is so clear and well-argued, that I'll have to change my opinion. How could anyone NOT change their minds after such a convincing argument?

By the way, on the way up the hill today, I had a conversation with another ex-BOD member. We talked about the fact that LA City Councilman Alarcon, who was elected to replace Councilman Padilla, is a huge fan of ours. He even went so far as to give a plug to some non-flying folks about how great hang gliding was for the local community and how it makes the area special. Maybe it is time to do that CUP, eh? What do we want, an engraved invitation?

I spoke to Hiro & Jim today about a design change to get rid of plan C's vertical supports & they were on top of it, if plan C goes through, for those of you that spoke up about the issue & did not know the plan, the frame will be made of box steel beams on the exterior walls to support the load of the roof structure eliminating the interior vertical supports, this will give the structure a much more open feel & still have the possibility of becoming a clubhouse.

I agree with George about asking now, but I think we should ask for more than we have been planing for, the plans should have the bathrooms in them so we can do it all at the same time, what good is a beautifull structure that makes us look more respectable if people are still pissing in the bushes.
The club pays for the gazebo & the club members should vote on raising the money ourselves to get the bathrooms done at the same time.

I would donate $500.00 & my time. ANYONE ELSE?

I'm for putting restrooms in when it's built. Can we start a restroom fund of some sort?

Can we watch our language also? Not just on launc or the LZ but the field but on these forums too. I know some fairly conservative people who might find hanggliding enjoyable but would be turned off some of the language I notice sometimes. We need all the support we can get!
