We had an excellent meeting last night!!!
It started off with a discussion of some recent local flights (people have be flying daily all week), then yours truly conducted some of the local club business and distributed some information that was important to communicate to our local flying community. We then had some heavy voting (j/k) to lock in our candidate wins for the 2015 board of directors.
The highlight of the night was our guest speaker. I want to say a big “Thank you!” to Tom “SD” Truax for coming out to meeting last night and giving an excellent XC presentation. As always he was very enthusiastic about our backyard playground and all the possibilities of routes that we have to fly here. He covered the weather and what to look for on skew-t charts for our surrounding ranges. Showed flight logs from his recent, as he called them “Boutique” flights, most of us just called them incredible. He explained in detail the routes he flew and why he chose to go where he did on those particular days. Showed various bailouts and ways to get out of the back country if you happened to land out. I heard from at least two people that it was the best meeting they have been to for the club. I myself was thoroughly enlightened and learned a ton of new stuff about our ranges. I’ve included a few pictures from the meeting and presentation.
Here are your 2015 SBSA Board of Directors. A hearty thanks to all those who volunteer their time to help make this club a success. If you see or run into a board member, congratulate them and do me a favor, thank them for their effort.
