Training and Testing 2015
Guardian Report 2014
It gives us the greatest satisfaction to report that there was not a single example of a question of ethics that was
raised in 2014. That is just as it should be with a Council that works hard on our behalf.
My own experience only goes back to the mid ‘70s, but it was also gratifying to note that the AGM was carried out without the bitterness or rancour that some of us have seen of late.
At that AGM, you will have heard of the indisposition of our colleague Guardian, Peter McKenna FSAA. As it is likely that it will be some time before Peter can tell us of his wishes, we have asked Alan Gibson FSAA, to assist meanwhile. Those of you who know Alan, will agree that he is ideal in that he has experience and the best interests of our Association at heart.
The future team will be decided when Peter is up and about again.
See you downwind
