Message from the President

Happy New Year to All!
I want to wish all of the members of the Borden Flying Club and their families a Happy New Year! I’m looking forward to a great year of flying and getting together with all of you at the various events we have planned for 2014.

While the weather has been a bit of a killjoy these first couple of weeks of the New Year, I encourage you to get out and fly in the winter. The views from the cockpit just seem to go on forever on a clear bright winters day in the air, and for those of us with a night rating, it allows us the opportunity to fly before 10 p.m.

On the administrative side of the club, I would like to remind members that nominations for the 2014/15 Board of Directors will be up on the website in March. All members are welcome to nominate a fellow member or themselves to stand for elections at the April AGM. The Borden Flying Club is a non-profit organization run by dedicated volunteers, and is comprised of your fellow members. Our membership, and thus the Board of Directors, comprises members from all walks of life, with immense knowledge and expertise. It has been the dedication of past and present board members who have made this such a wonderful club to belong to. Your active contribution by taking a turn on the Board is essential to the club so that it will continue to be strong well into the future.

Happy Flying!

Chris Thompson
