Please see excerpts form email exchanges between frequent Waegell flyers on gate locks. Your cooperation is critical and would be very much appreciated by all who fly at Wagell. 

> Ed Decker

> P.S. I was the last one out of the field Sat.Feb. 23 and stopped and talked to the cattle cowboy rancher.

> He said he has noticed the combo lock combination not cleared on the lock at the gate a few times..!

> He wanted to make sure everyone clears the numbers before leaving....!!

> Fred Terzian
> Also, his highlighted warning about the gate lock is very important. We do not need to have people trashing the field with trash or

> abandoned cars. Worse yet is that the cattle could get out and cause a serious problem on Sunrise Blvd. If you are the first to arrive for a
> contest or test flying, make sure the lock code is no longer displayed, and of course clear it when you are the last to leave as well.

> Ben Tarcher

> Sounds like a good idea to me. If there is a problem with the lock we can add another one in series so if the first one doesn't

> work the second would . This is just a fail safe pecaution but works.

> Chris Borland

> Positive clearing of the lock is a good idea. I was out there last Tuesday and cleared the numbers but the tumblers hadn’t

> moved until I squeezed the lock and made sure that they were cleared. This word should be passed around to the several

> clubs. Users should test and MAKE sure that it wont’t open after closing! PULL TEST IT! A second lock should not be

> needed as long as everyone knows how to make sure the gate is actually locked.
