FUEL RE-IMBURSEMENT PRICE FOR OCTOBER $3.70
Members who have purchased fuel "out of pocket" can deduct this price
per gallon from
bill, or the billing director can credit the amount on next statement.
Please include copy of receipt either way.
We have three new T-Craft members this month:
If you see them around introduce yourself and
make them feel
welcome to our club!
Heaters are on the
planes again, so it is time to take a few extra minutes to make sure the
heaters are hooked up properly, and blankets are back over the cowling.
Please DO NOT adjust the thermostats, Jim Eyre has them set correctly.
Watch out for the extension cords on the hangar floor.
The Board of Directors has voted in a change to the new backcountry
policy. Level I now requires 150 hours total time. Please review the
new policy. Any questions or
concerns as well as the backcountry pilot approval process, please
direct to the
Membership/Safety Director, or any Board member.
There is a rumor
circulating that Sulfur Creek sold, and that it has closed to GA traffic.
Ray Arnold has been mentioned as the only way in.

The EPA is
cracking down on pilots dumping "sumped" fuel on the ramp.
It is a very steep
fine if you are caught. We have purchased devices to filter the fuel back
into the aircraft. It is a little cumbersome the first time you use it,
but it is necessary. Remove the top (strainer) section of the fuel tester,
drain fuel, and place fuel strainer on top of tester. Open top of strainer
and carefully replace fuel back into fuel tank.
It is always a good
idea to check with FSS before every flight. There could be new TFR's
posted in the area you are about to fly, or numerous other items you
wouldn't otherwise be aware of.
