In Attendance: John Simpson, Wayne Michelsen, Steve Rodrigues, Lisa Lesser, Rob Johnson, Urs Kellenberger, Saied, George Artz
Guests / New Members: No guests or new members.
Great Flights: Steve got to 1499' over Mussel Rock. Diver Dave made several flight to Half Moon Bay. A pilot had a water landing after launching without his leg loops on a cocoon harness. The pilot survived, but this is a reminder how we should never rely on others for our own safety. Be smart and be in charge of your own safety.

GGNRA Liaison Report (Steve Rodrigues): Steve talked to James Sword about getting some paint for the clubhouse. GGNRA gave us permission to mow the grass, but only for growth below 8", so keep the grass trimmed below 8" moving forward.
Old Business: Some PG's were "buzzing" launch as much as a PG can "buzz" launch.
New Business: Pilot was suspended one week for improper monitoring of a H2 pilot's first flight(s) at the Fort. Remember the rules when it comes to taking on the responsibility of a new pilot. A motion was made to allocate $320 for a lawn mower. Motion passed. The mower will be stored and secured in the clubhouse.
Random chit-chat ensued.
Meeting adjourned at 9:00 PM'ish...
