Hello RMHPA Member!
New for 2019, we will be appointing Site Directors to all RMHPA sites and those sites and regions which RMHPA pilots currently fly, which aren’t insured or protected by RMHPA. Specifically, there will be a Western Slope Director, responsible for Otto’s, Reeder’s, Dominguez, and the rest of the desert. I have drafted a description for the position of Site Director, which you can find at the link below.
This position is vital to the club, as we need local experts who are familiar with access issues to help us ensure our site guides and safety information is up to date and that we are informed of any relevant land use or safety issues.
Those of you who attended the September meeting in the mountains know, I value all of our sites and want to ensure equal consideration is given to each. One of my plans for the incoming Event Director is to coordinate with each Site Director to plan at least one meeting at each of our sites and one on the Western Slope, in 2019. I would like to see our Event Director work with the Site Directors to plan more competitions, clinics, fly-ins, and other events throughout the year.
New for 2019, we will be running monthly tasks, per site, which will be created by the Site Directors. You will have the opportunity to set monthly tasks and post the coordinates for your site, which will be open for pilots to complete, throughout the month. This should encourage pilots to develop their skills and visit other sites, for fun and informal competition.
We are currently seeking volunteers and nominations for site directors at each of the following sites:
*Lookout / Mt. Zion
*Wolcott (likely to be paired with Bellyache)
*Williams (includes Azure and Junction Butte)
Please email me directly if you would like to volunteer or if you have a nominee in mind for any of these positions.
