7.    The runway is for takeoff, landings and touch and goes ONLY.  ALL OTHER flying is to be over the OVERFLY AREA west of the runway and NEVER intentionally over the pits, parking area and SR 13.

8.    There is NO TAXING in the pit area except for aircraft that are too large to be safely carried to the runway gate.  They may use it's own power so long as the pilot or his assistant PHYSICALLY RESTRAINS the aircraft until it reaches the runway.

9.    Gliders and Dead Stick aircraft have the right of way at all times.

10.  No more than four(4) aircraft in the air at one time. 

11.  All flying should be done from one of the designated PILOT STATIONS.

12.  Only the pilot and his designated instructor/assistant should occupy a pilot station.

13.  NO ONE FORWARD OF THE PITS except pilots and their designated instructors/assistants.

14.  All gas/glow powered aircraft will have a muffler attached.

15.  The pond is available for float equipped and amphibian aircraft.  Never attempt to retrieve a disabled aircraft from the pond by entering the water without proper floatation and/or protective clothing AND able bodied help standing by.

16.  If a Crop Duster appears close to the field, you must land IMMEDIATELY until it clears the area.  If it is operating over any of the Parker fields, you MUST REMAIN ON THE GROUND.

17.  If you loose and aircraft in a cultivated field other than the hay fields, Do Not go into the field to retrieve it as there are dangerous chemicals there. 

18.  The swamp to the west of the fields is inhabited by an abundance of snakes and alligators.  Enter at you own risk.  It is always very difficult to walk in because of the muck and mire.

19.  All garbage and trash is to be placed in the proper receptacle and/or taken away from the field upon leaving.

20.  Remove ALL remains of crashed aircraft from the hay fields.  The Parkers are very sensitive to the quality of their hay for the protection of their customers and we MUST respect that.

21.  EVER MEMBER IS A SAFETY OFFICER and it is their responsibility to gently point out anything they see that might not be safe.  Everything we do should answer this question first.  IS IT SAFE?  Common sense must prevail at all times for all other activities not covered by these rules.
