Don't Forget To Lock The Gate!
This is unsatisfactory behavior by an IRCC member, thankfully, this is an infrequent occurrence as most members of the IRCC adhere to the rule to close and lock the gate when they’re the last one out. This is imperative that we keep the gate closed and locked when we are not there to provide security for our field, runway, and equipment.
Please close and lock the gate behind you if you are the last one out. There is a sign reminding the last person out to close and lock the gate, therefore, there are no excuses for this lapse in security for our flying club.

It seems that we have gotten a Phishing attack against one of our members. Be SURE to contact the individual personally to ensure that the emails are legit. These attacks have been soliciting money! BE CAUTIOUS AND BEWARE.
