Lake Tahoe Seaplane Pilots Legal Defense Fund

August 27, 2010

From Chuck Kimes . . .

In June and July, 2010, a few local seaplane pilots came together to protect the rights of all seaplanes to continue operating on Lake Tahoe.  Engaging a Noise Consultant and Attorney, they were able to turn back a serious proposal by the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency to permanently ban all seaplane operations, docking facilities and bases on the shoreline of Lake Tahoe.  Now that the victory has been won, the organizers of that effort are left with the legal bills.  To date, only 23 donors have contributed to the Legal Defense Fund. We are now soliciting your contribution to retire the debts that two individuals incurred on behalf of all seaplane pilots and fans of seaplane operations on Lake Tahoe.

Noise Consultant                                                          $1,445.00
