Field Etiquette 4/12/19
1. Please, NO vehicles on the field (except Jeff's lawnmower and the roller). All vehicles are to stay BEHIND the flight line. We understand that itís hard to back in those big trailers and RVís, but please resist the urge to drive onto the field so you can just pull forward into the pit area. The taildraggers and guys with retracts will really thank you!
2. Please, NO flying over the pit. Yes, there are emergencies and accidents, but there is no intentional flying allowed over the pits. This is a serious safety issue. Not only that, but this is one of the things that really gets guys riled up. So when you take off, please head away from the pits. When you land, please anticipate where you will be touching down and itís relation to where the pits are. The life you save may be your own!
3. If you are walking out to put your plane on the fabric runway, please step back BEHIND the flight line to take off. Last year folks were getting in the habit of staying out by the fabric runway which really puts them at risk of getting hit. ALL flying is done from BEHIND the flight line. Again, a common sense safety issue. Just to review, the flight-line is indicated by the patio stones at each flight station. The flight-line extends to each end of the field. Yes, a majority of times the extreme ends have neither cars nor pilots. But for our events and holidays, they always are crowded, so please train yourself to stay away from those areas so that you and all of us can enjoy worry-free flying any day.
4. NO trash in the fire pit. "But it just burns away." Not the cans and the glass and the blah, blah, blah. The field rules plainly state that ALL trash must be taken with you, even broken propellers. The fire pit is for nice, cozy log fires. Not for burning garbage.
5. If your dog poops, you clean it up.
6. Please do not throw your cigarette butts on the ground. But you CAN throw them in the fire pit!
