MGA special general meeting -- Lionel Brink

Due to work & family commitments, Evan Shaw, Izak Theron, Malcolm Siebert & Piet Rheeders felt that they were no longer able to fulfil their MGA roles. I’d like to thank them for their support & also for all their efforts in assisting the gliding community. I’d also like to thank those individuals who have agreed to fill these roles & wish you all success with the task(s) ahead.

It has been mentioned in the past that the MGA has the potential of being one of the largest SIGs within SAMAA and is certainly the oldest SIG (not necessarily due to the average age of its pilots J). Unfortunately the actual membership is virtually unknown & contact details are sparse/incorrect. We are appealing to all glider pilots (part-time, social, sport or competitive) or clubs that have an interest in gliding or existing glider pilots to have their contact details updated at the MGA, so that appropriate communication channels can be built.

We realise that not everyone has access to the internet/email, but given the extremely limited resources/budget it is virtually impossible for the MGA to use anything other than email, MGASA forum and the South Easter. If you are aware of anyone who is not e-connected, and who might be interested in MGA news, please contact me directly.

1. The Treasurers 2007 budget proposal was unanimously approved & has been submitted to SAMAA.

2. An acting committee was appointed until the AGM scheduled for the Nationals in Natal this year. For the record, all the changed positions where nominated & seconded as per accepted democratic election processes (details in the minutes to follow):

Acting Chairperson
Lionel Brink (replacing Evan Shaw)
Ilma Stockton
Volney Klintworth
Acting Secretary
Gordon Prahm (replacing Izak Theron)

Mark Stockton (replaced Piet Rheeders)
Mark Stockton (replacing Malcolm Siebert)
Charles Flee
Stephance du Ponsel

Regional representatives remain unchanged at this time. An updated MGA structure will be circulated shortly.

Kind regards,

Lionel Brink
