2019 HPAC/ACVL Online AGM

HPAC members might be interested that the AGM is online. Again, mid summer when flying is the priority of most pilots so I’m sure interest will be minimal. (If you’re a member you should have received notice of the “online meeting”. ) The HPAC’s “Coal fired” forum (https://www.hpac.ca/forum/viewforu...

Re: Should I Stay or should I Leave?....

Tom, can you get me a refund? I sure would not want to be a member of a club that would have somebody like me as a member. Troublemakers and reprobates, the WCSC should not be offering shelter for such of the likes of me.... Cheers Martin (Btw... Everybody can chill for a bit.... I'm off to Trumps A...

Re: Should I Stay or should I Leave?....

Tyler, Since your a big time entrepreneur, You should appreciate the business risks associated with becoming reliant on a single employee to represent your interests. One day you stop by to have a look and see how things are going and everything is gone.... a little "bit coin" biz comes to mind. Wha...

Re: Should I Stay or should I Leave?....

how many of the not renewed were visiting pilots? Please don't ask our Business manager to run the numbers... we (sorry you... since I'm not an HPAC member :wink: ) could end up with an additional service charge. I did a rough estimate based on a "country" search of the same 12 month active and 12 ...

Re: Should I Stay or should I Leave?....

I know the administration and some of the current directors view me as a PITA but I believe I have earned the right to enact my own course of "civil disobedience". All I'm asking is for the members to not just plunk down the chump change of $175 and think that our sport is secure. IMO, the members n...

Re: Mid air / Pilot Liability / Fairness

Not really sure what "significant amount of pressure" means but I understand the emotion of the situation. Several years back I experienced a mid air at Woodside where I ended up in the trees with equipment damage. I was fortunately not hurt but was out of pocket $1000 in repairs and loss of use. By...

Re: Should I Stay or should I Leave?....

Martin wants us to spend more money to get less in return. So far the only solution I have seen him present is... Join USHPA. Quitting isn't a solution, Martin. Tyler, what a newbie.... one of the sheep grazing in the high alpine meadows blissfully believing there is a future ;-) - Martin wants us ...

Re: Should I Stay or should I Leave?....

Kind of amused Martin, Tom, well thanks! Your amusement is my pleasure. Oh, and your right... this thread is all about "me" and my opinions regarding the HPAC... (oh and chocolate sprinkles on Latte's, Whistler lift tickets....Russian pilots...and sheep that graze in high alpine meadows ). Perhaps ...

Re: Should I Stay or should I Leave?....

Hi Martin! Uh, I never said anything about "chump change" ... I'm suggesting that we are privileged - compared to the average Joe - to be able engage in a sport that takes us into an amazing environment by incredible means that few others get to experience. I understand that to a lot of folks, even...

Re: Should I Stay or should I Leave?....

Ok, votes are in.... apparently people would like me to stay (73% in favor of me staying)... which is a bit disappointing give the effort I put in to getting myself thrown off the "Island". I will take the vote into consideration and ponder my next move... IN the meantime, I just received this from ...

Re: Should I Stay or should I Leave?....

One day of skiing at Whistler ... over $175, plus tax. Hmmmm ... Nikolai, just guessing here but I assume your post is to suggest that the HPAC membership is just chump change? After all if a day on the hill in Whistler cost you $175 (plus taxes) what's the big deal with dumping $175 on whole years...
