    I don’t think I am in a position to really comment on the wisdom of either pursuing or forgoing the purchase of this glider, but I wanted to raise a point in regards to the complexity of the Lark

    While I think Don makes excellent points about the issues that purchasing a complex glider for the club would raise,  a glider like this is what we would ultimately need in order train low time pilots to reach a level of proficiency more akin to our private ship owners.  The use of any such glider by club members would need to be handled judiciously to ensure safety for everyone, and now may or may not be the right time to do it.  Thinking long term though, the purchase of a complex 2 seat glider may be something the club would want to consider at some point.
