    Recently, I talked to Walt Eason about the inaccurate Lat/Lon at the ADK in the MG. I also found a claim jumper and family up there. Walt suggested I handle such encounters by allowing the jumper to look and if he likes what he finds, join the GPAA club. That is a genius stroke of salesmanship, Walt. That is how I will handle future meetings. Tnx.  ╦╦Ç

    I've run across a few non-members on the claims here, and usually handle it the same way, let them poke around and invite them to a chapter meeting.  I also give them my name in case another member comes along and gives them a hard time.  It all depends what kind of an attitude they come back with.  Will usually ask if they are members of the Association, rather than GPAA members.  If I get a blank look or "what association" then I know they aren't.  If you ask GPAA? the usual answer is yes.  Will takes written notes on date, time, # of people, plate #'s. equipment, etc. for future use if needed.

    The second time I find them there and they haven't taken me up on the offer, I'll ask them to leave and take plate#'s and pics.

    'morning Art. I can imagine that a bunch of serious questions directed at a known jumper would certainly give him cause for concern. In such cases I don't think it has to be done twice. Tnx for the response.  ╦╦Ç
