Hello SSI Instructors,

Since their has been no feedback on the proposals I made, I am assuming that everyone is in agreement about:

  • Moving the rwy 27 stop line from the fuel tank to the runway threshold markings.
  • Designating taxiway, staging, gridding, towplane and run-a-way areas of our field.
  • Retraining our CFI’s to teach our members to only taxi/roll the glider to the north side of the runway when a low amount of energy is achieved (for example: at a fast walk speed).

I will make the changes in the Policies and Procedures Manual on page nine and run it by the BOD for approval.
