Summary of discussion points arising in the 2019 Annual General Meeting gathering for the Murray Bridge Gliding Club Inc.:
With essentially a continuing static membership size, the club in the year increased its flying activities both within the club membership and with external initiatives including AJ2019 flying.
The preceding year's equipment purchase initiatives and the work since to make these operational during this year resulted in a notional asset value increase in the club, balanced by a commensurate operating funds in hand decrease.
Consistent with the club forward looking overall goals:
Changes in the Pallamana circumstance continues to evolve. Some of this mitigates against gliding there. -
ITEMS for all pilots to note:
* at the end of flying day
Last pilot to fly each flying day -
In this way the connection to upcoming maintenance hours at front of MR are more clearly related.
* Steve will be at Gawler on Sunday 25th August, MBGC pilots wishing to do spin check there can attend on the day.
* FFQ warm up
Pilots have got used to the rapid CHT increase on GUD and early taxiing.
In contrast FFQ warms oil much more slowly. Pilots are encouraged to fill in engine time in pilot log after extended warm up and wait for oil temp before taxiing to preserve motor.
* fuel valve shut off
New valve taps have been installed, which require detent to be lifted (2 fingers) before being able to rotate (thumb on side of handle) to closed position. Pilots to trial in cockpit on the ground
* upcoming motorglider excursions
