For many years Walter has presented a trophy on behalf of YSA at the A.C Wings ceremony at Mountainview. This year it is being held on Friday, August 23, and since he is no longer driving he is hoping that someone will be able to take him there. If you can assist, please respond to this post or call him directly at 416-223-6487.

I believe we were asked to bring a glider down for the graduation as well. To hand out brochures.

Check with Molly. Part of the old youth committee project as we met with and got permission to redevelope a relationship with York Soaring.

Walter's health peaked up in the last weeks and Charles, at short notice, drove Walter to the ceremony and back.

The attachment CRGS 2-33 Panel.jpg is no longer available
One of us may be doing it wrong.

CRGS has a roster of 18 tow pilots under a Chief Tow Pilot and a Deputy Chief Tow Pilot, and 24 Instructors and 12 Staff Cadets, for 60 graduates.

But have a look at their equipment!

I wonder where the battery for the radio goes. Nice to see a 2-33 in as-new condition, but many things are possible when spending other peoples money.

It's not other peoples money, it's yours and mine, and through the PMO, it's not subject to audit by the Auditor-General. Two full-time mechanics, they tell me...
