Fellow Feathers
8 April 2008

Present were:

"railroaded" and "railroaders".

Topics were:

- Heated debate regarding suspension issued to M.L.
Sweet nothings are exchanged...

- Ranger Rudy is moving away. The club thanks him for his service.

- A new special use permit agreement is in force for 2 years.

- Current clubhouse rules use the term "Active Pilot" defined as someone who flies at the Fort 3 times per year. Suggestion is made that Clubhouse rules use language from the Bylaws, with the term "voting member" defined as someone who has flown Fort Funston more than 20 hours proceeding the year in which they are entitled to vote.
Motion is passed.

- Auction will be held Saturday, 12 April 2008 (10 am to 5 pm).

- Training bowl should be groomed. Chris V. is to buy shovels.

- New "cone head" warning signs are noticed and well liked by the public.

- Chris V. had "Fort Funston" t-shirts made. Get your own for $20.

- New budget presented by Daniel M. Budget is passed.

- There was an accident on Sunday, 6 April 2008. Pilot Charles F., new H3, crashed on landing, after missing his turns on less-than-ideal conditions. He was wearing a DOT-approved motorcycle helmet which might have prevented serious brain trauma as he impacted the keel with force.

> In case of evidence of forceful impact, encourage the victim to stay still (without forcing them, which would lead to further injuries). Place victim on backboard.
> When in doubt, land at the beach.

- Westlake Director position is discussed. Gordon will submit new ideas for revisions.

No more tar, no more feathers. Meeting is adjourned.
