Several members voiced concern that the fact that AJX and associated launch sites are for intermediate pilots only who have been signed off by an instructor. Their concern is that visiting pilots often are no t aware of this fact
A motion was made that this fact be added prominently to the website and added to the top of thday use form.
The motion was also made that no P2, H2 visiting pilots be signed off on the day of Fly ins due to heavy traffic etc.

A query came from the floor regarding the status ot the CCR, pond water, future camping etc. This issue was reported to be in flux and still developing and that no conclusions can be drawn at this time.
