The Passing of Bill Ogilvie

Bill Ogilvie was one of our members, and a great contributor to the club. While he started his glider flying up at Morgan, he was also a tremendous club asset at Cedar Valley.

Bill volunteered constantly for the club, providing his efforts to whatever work was necessary. He also flew and volunteered his other skills flying for the Salt Lake Civil Air Patrol Glider Flight, introducing the joy of soaring to cadets in the local area.

This is a terrible event and a great loss to us all. Our hearts and thoughts go out to his wife and family.

Cedar Valley Now Open!

Cedar Valley is now open on the weekends. Cory Anderson has pushed the annual CV opening earlier this year, so if you have your own glider and want a tow on Thursday through Sunday, give Brent a call and come on down!

Elected To The Board

New officers of the board of directors were voted into position during the annual meeting. Visit the Board Of Directors page for the results! Congratulations to our new directors, and thanks for volunteering your time and energy to our club. The remaining appointed positions will be filled at the next board of directors meeting.

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.

New Flight Log Procedures

In order to better track glider usage there is a new and improved flight log installed in the gliders.

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!
