Gliding Queensland

New GQ President 2014 - Introduction

 

Hi Everyone,

This is to introduce myself to you as the new President of Gliding Queensland.I know many of you personally, many by name, and for those who don't know me I hope we will get to know each other soon.

I was Secretary for many years and now President of Caboolture Gliding Club and I have been the GQ Deputy GFA delegate to Dave Donald for the past year.

When I was approached to consider the position of GQ President I was reluctant to nominate as I wasn't sure what I could offer GQ.  One thing I have been aware of for a long time is most of our members have little knowledge of what GQ actually does in the structure of gliding.

Dave has done a lot of great work in increasing that awareness, and one thing I intend to do is to build on his work as well as the numerous other tasks to assist, however possible, our great sport in Queensland.  A lot of thanks must go to Dave for the time he has given to GQ both as President and as the continuing GQ Delegate on the GFA Board.   This has been at a time when his wife Johanna needed all his support with her health difficulties.  Thank-you Dave and Johanna.

Safe fun flying,

Lindsay Mitchell
President
GLIDING QUEENSLAND
