Please give Brad Bender a hardy, and well deserved, “Thank you” the next several times you see him. He has tirelessly monitored the restrictions placed upon our flying site. He stayed in near constant communication with the Parks Dept. Rangers and the SD Police. He got the field opened up, arranged for the field cleaning and repair, and most recently, even got the Porta Poti opened back up by instituting a strict cleaning regiment that the Rangers found acceptable. (I personally thank him from the bottom of my bladder). It is this kind of leadership that makes our club truly exceptional. So please, say: “Thanks Brad!”, shower him with gifts, offer to fly his planes for him, stop peeing on his wheels, or whatever you need to do to show your appreciation.
