President’s Corner for Nov./Dec. 2019

Hey pilots,

We are coming to the end of the year and I want to thank everybody for a great year of flying. I would like to remind everybody that we are voting this month for club officers. So if there’s anybody you would like to nominate, please do so.  If you want to nominate yourself, that’s fine as well. We will be holding the vote at this months meeting which is on November 23. Please have a say in what your club does and how it operates. 
We have received a response to our LOA from the FAA. As of December 1, we are restricted to a 200 foot altitude and daylight hours only. I know this is not ideal but we are still allowed to fly and have access to our flying field. We are negotiating with the FAA and hope to bring our flight ceiling back up to 400 feet but in the meantime please respect the altitude change until further notice. We know 200 feet is low for some pilots we are doing what we can to bring that back up so please be respectful and fly to 200 feet. We want to be back at 400 feet and are working hard to get there and get it done so please be patient with us. This is ongoing and we will keep you informed. 
We will be holding our Christmas party on January 18. We will be reserving the harbor house again this year and are expecting around 130 seats to be available. Tickets will be $20 apiece so first come first serve. Once 130 have been sold there will be no more seats available. We always have a great time at the party and hope to see you all there. 
I want to thank you all again for bringing your fire extinguishers. I have seen a lot more fire extinguishers at the field which is great, keep it up. You guys are awesome and I hope to serve you better in the coming year so please feel free to contact me and give me any input that you have.  Thank you again. 
 
Sincerely 

Tony Blackhurst.
