Landowner/Resident Appreciation Program
The landowner relations program includes balloon pins to all respondents, along with a follow up thank you letter and club brochure. Recognizing that crews often assume primary responsibility for good landowner relations, we will have drawings for gifts for balloon teams, as well as the landowners themselves.
The Committee will distribute landowner cards at flying event registration, in new member packets, and at AAAA meetings. Cards will be stamped ?Free Balloon Pin? to encourage landowner/resident response.
Participating pilots whose landowner/resident contacts submit the cards will also be entered into a drawing for prizes. Since balloon crews are often key in establishing good landowner relations, the Committee will provide prizes for a separate crew drawing, as well.
We are pleased to support this program as an incentive for good landowner/resident relations and a reward for your participation.
Probhibited Zones (PZ's) must be considered at all times.
This membership publication is sent out monthly to current members. Deadline for submission is the Friday after each general meeting.
