        Hello Sky Soaring Instructors,

        I hope you have been enjoying the winter. We are approaching
        spring along with our Spring Safety Meeting. We are considering on
        holding it at the hangar once again either on Saturday March 19th
        or the follow week March 26 (TBD). (The location may change).

        I was hoping that you would be willing to present a topic to
        discuss like we did last year. Something on the order of a 15-20
        minute presentation. 

        I have listed below the topics that you chose last year.

            Well last year didn’t turn out so well. But I could expand on Emergencies. If Mark is not available to do WINGS I can do that with FAA Flight Review.

                    Hello Sky Soaring Instructors,

                    For our Spring Safety Meeting, so far, Steve Snyder will do a presentation on WINGS and Flight Reviews, Gary Palumbo will do Ground Safety and Operations. John Baker is available for a subject. I will do a review of our Policy and Procedures Manual and emphasize important safety items in the manual.
                    Do we have any other instructors not mentioned above that would like to make a presentation?
