Clear-Cutting near the D-loop

Some of you may have noticed small clear-cut areas between Balmer Bay Road and D-loop just east of the hospital. These are not the marks of a trail clearer gone mad but rather the consequence of removing trees that were in the flight path of helicopters landing at the hospital. A small price to pay for a safe landing.

Survey Results

At the end of last season, the DRXC Executive sent out a short survey to find out what issues are important to members and solicit ideas for improving the club.

78 people filled out the survey, or about 1 in 3 of our adult members.  The results are available here in two separate files: the detailed results and a summary.  We will review all the responses and follow up on ideas for improving the club.  In the meantime, contact Bob Donders (613-584-4321; dondersr@) or Phil Davis (613-584-3033; if you have any questions.  Thanks to all those who took the time to give us their thoughts.
