Rule # 1:
Remember, WE ARE ALL HERE TO FLY GLIDERS (SAFELY) AND HAVE FUN!
Rule # 2:
When things get tough, and the whiners and the complainers start to get to you, remember Rule #1.
Rule # 3:
When the persons mentioned in Rule #2 really start to get to you, ignore them and refer to Rule #1.
Rule # 4:
Consider the source. If someone whose views you respect tells you that there is something wrong, maybe there is. But, then again, maybe there isn’t. In case of confusion, refer to Rule #1.
Rule # 5:
There is nothing so important that it cannot be postponed to a non-soaring day. (This is really Rule#1 stated differently.)
Rule # 6:
Insist that all your directions be obeyed promptly and to the letter – particularly “Take up slack” and “All out”.
Rule # 7:
Delegate authority. Nobody will listen to you anyway, so they might as well not listen to someone else, while you go follow Rule #1.
Rule # 8:
Keep your sense of humour. People will try to take it away from you, but its hard to follow Rule #1 without one.
