President’s Corner for Jan – Feb 2020

Hey Pilots,

I would like to welcome everybody to a new flying year. We had a great time last year with all of our club events and flying adventures. We have an exciting year planned so please stay tuned for all the updates.
We had a successful holiday party at the Harbor House and l want to put out a big thanks to all those at the harbor house who helped make our event as wonderful as it was. We had a great raffle with plenty of airplanes chargers and batteries we also had gifts for the wives. I would like to invite everybody to attend next year’s party, it should be just as fun as this years. 
I would like to remind everybody that we are limited to 200’. I know it’s not ideal but we do have to stay at that limit until we get further authorization from the tower. We are working to get our clearance back up to 400 feet but it will take time so please be patient with us during this time of transition. Please be respectful of your fellow members and stay below that altitude. Anything over that jeopardizes the entire club and it would be unfortunate if you were the one that was the catalyst for Having our field shut down. If you are consistently not staying under the altitude limit, we will have no choice but to ask you not to come back to the field and jeopardize the other few hundred members we have at this club. 
The field is nice and hard. Please be aware that when it rains it does get very soft please don’t walk on it so that our other pilots can enjoy the field also. 
And last, but not least, I would like to thank Steve Belknap our editor for his tireless dedication to the club and maintaining our newsletter and all our club reminders. 
This is going to be an exciting year so please stay tuned for all the good clean fun. 
Sincerely,

Tony Blackhurst.
