Clubhouse Officer’s Report (Rob Johnson): Talked about refurbishing the clubhouse racks with better spacing and padding. LZ care equipment is secure.
Safety Officer’s Report (Chris Carrillo): Flying - not present. President talked about type of gliders we should be flying depending on pilot skill and conditions. Pilots that are taught typical box landing approach (downwind, base, final) need to be well-versed on landing techniques specific to Funston in all wind conditions and directions. Pilots need to be aware that there is less beach north of the sewer pipe regardless of high or low tide cycles. Use caution in marginal soaring conditions. Takeo volunteered to help with a tutorial safety video.
Tech Officer’s Report (Chuck Kranz): Reminded everyone that Kent Harker’s Funston Primer is still available on the Club’s website. Got rid of DSL in the Rope’s Building with Takeo’s help - no more DSL! Continuing to improve our internet system. Rob will be setting the web cam to a higher resolution.
