The potluck social held at Johann and Margaret Posch's house on the evening of November 22nd was a smashing success!Potluck Dinner Social Event
The potluck dinner social held at Johann and Margaret Posch's house on the evening of November 22nd was a smashing success! Many members braved the snow and rain to attend. Great food, drink and conversation filled the evening. Thanks to all who attended, providing input and ideas for the future of the club!Passenger Limited Liability Release
The pilot in command has the ultimate responsibility for the operation of the glider. Our club insurance provides one layer of protection and the purchase of a personal non-owner policy will provide additional protection. A limited liability release document is another method to provide yourself and the club an additional layer of protection from legal actions arising due to an incident while flying with a non-club member. The club encourages to use of an additonal non-owner insurance policy, as well as the use of a limited liability document. Click here for an example of such a document.Weigh Your Glider!
There is still time to get your glider weighed this season! Earlier this year Stan McGrew aquired aircraft scales and in the interest of safety he is offering free weighing services to any club member! This is a huge benefit to our club. One imortant item - Don't even think of asking Stan to let the scales out of his sight! E-mail Stan McGrew to make an appointment now.Nephi Events

The Cedar Valley Airport is now closed for the season. The club glider at Heber City and Logan have been taken off-line.
Currently the only glider available for club member use is the Twin Astir. It is currently available at the Morgan County Airport.
With the season winding down, N54554 and 228BG have been put away for the winter. N4446Y is currently assembled and on the ramp at Logan-Cache Valley, but it is not available for reservation. The flight insurance has been suspended.
The club is constantly making efforts to better communicate and track maintenance issues with the gliders. We have a new procedure which will go into effect for the 2014 soaring season. document for details.
In order to better track glider usage there is a new and improved flight log installed in the gliders. Look for a zippered pouch that contains the Flight Manual, Weight and Balance information, the new Maintenance Items Log as well as the new Flight Log. The Maintenance Items Log has the contact information for the glider stewards at each airport the club uses. Also, please continue to fill out the log accurately for each flight. Thanks!
