Mike Jefferson did a very cool thing for the US Hawks recently. I don't want to publicly say what it was because that might spoil its effectiveness, but I do want to thank him very publicly. If anyone (who has my phone number) wants to know more, please feel free to give me a call. All I can say for now is that it was very cool, and very clever.

Thanks Mike!!

Thanks Guys!

I did what I thought was right. I fought to open Ed Levin Park to all hang gliding pilots regardless of their organization or club affiliation. I am now working on our other publicly owned site to release the USHPA death grip there. It won't be long before these USHPA bullies will be ghosts of the past. :thumbup:

Whoa!! Mike, I'll call Bob to find out the details but I sure like your statement above.

If USHPA was still a club to promote flying and flying sites they would have made opening sites to no required insurance a long time ago. That should have always been top priority.

I used to donate every year (during all those years I wasn't hang gliding anymore) to the foundation's site preservation fund but I quit when I realized that they were only helping with USHPA controlled sites. :thumbdown:

I have no idea what the "thank yous" are about :think: but I guess I'll say thanks too. Thanks!

Man, you're such a loser! ; - ) lol
