is here, Jim Eyre has posted a great article on the web site everyone
should read. Cold Weather Operations
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 ANY DIAL ON THE HEATERS, Jim Eyre has them set correctly.
Watch out for the extension cords on the hangar floor.

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.
You can order Apparel
Bulldog Shirt Shop in Nampa on 12th Ave. They have our logo and will
put it on any item in their catalog. Click on their name for the map and
