Muller Windsports 2014 Reserve Clinic, March 15, 2014‏

Our Annual Reserve Packing Clinic will be coming up in March. Due to increasing costs, the location will be back out in Cochrane at the French School in town. Our routine is usually the experienced pilots and out-of-towners deploy first at 9am for the first hour. We then move to video presentation and discussion. During the day we will be packing and checking over reserves. If any extra work needs to be done, then those reserves will be taken to the shop and packed for pick up at a later date.

Old Phone-based Windtalker Replaced…

The original Windtalker phone has now been now been discontinued.  A more up-to-date weather station has been installed at Cochrane to replace it.

Thanks to Keith and Dan and the instructors and pilots who contributed to pay for it.

Be sure to check it out! You can access the link via your computer or smart phone.

Fundraiser for Stewart Midwinter…

Stewart Midwinter had an accident last August and has been working hard with rehab at Foothills hospital since that time.  There are some items that he feels would help his efforts to recover as much as possible and we thought that we would have a fundraiser to collect money that Stew can use to help his rehab.

Here is the plan:

Date:     Saturday, May 5, 2012

Time:     2pm – 6pm

Weather permitting we thought that we could have target landing for hang gliders and paragliders.  Or, ground handling around pylons, always entertaining.

A silent auction

50/50 draw

BBQ around 5pm before Stewart has to go back to the hospital.

We are hoping for a fun filled afternoon, a little like the old time Cochrane Meets that we used to have before XC flying was shut down at the Cochrane Site.
