Access OF CAP Members TO U.S. Military Installations
1. As the official auxiliary of the U.S. Air Force, Civil Air Patrol works closely with Air Force, Reserve,  National Guard and other U.S. military units. This close relationship, together with the fact that a number of our units meet on military installations, makes it necessary for some CAP members to have access to military bases. 2. One of the objectives in our 2013-2014 Strategic Plan is to explore military installation access for CAP members. Therefore, to find out what problems are currently encountered at the local unit level in regard to access to military installations, and to find acceptable solutions to these problems, we have developed a questionnaire that can be accessed by unit commanders at https://missions.capnhq.gov/dynasurvey/survey/Survey2.cfm?ID=33 3. Please complete the questionnaire online by 3 June 2013.
RMR Has a New Web Page
In an effort to keep the Rocky Mountain Region informed, we have launched a new Web page. http://rmrcapnews.org/

More funding for Training and Cadet O-ride Budgets
CAP has received additional funds at this time and this funding is for your training and cadet o-ride budgets. Please commit all your training funds to training missions by 31-May so we can see where we are at. If you have unused funds that you are not going to commit let us know and we will see if another wing need some more. If you need additional funding please submit an IAPP with a budget to us and we see what we can do. The issue is we all have to have all of our funds committed to ask for more and get it. We also now have more cadet o-ride funding.
Annual Training Plans
Annual Wing Training plans are due by 31 July. They are to uploaded into WMIRS. See CAPR 60-3, para 1-7 for more guidance.
Aircraft news
FYI...Cessna stopped making C182 with gas engines, they are going to turbo diesels that use Jet-A which is fine. The problem is they are heavier yet, it basically makes the C182 a 2 person plane. So NHQ is considering to start buying Cessna 206's, hopefully turbo's for our new aircraft or a Canadian aircraft. CT206 are a great plane for us other than they burn 18 GPH at cruise for the turbo's, but you can reduce power and save on fuel, fly at 55-60% power and use 14-15 GPH 135 Kts instead of 75% and 18 GPH @ 145 Kts @ 8000 MSL. We are planning to bring the C206 to one of your exercises so you can see the plane and how it performs. It is a horse for takeoff and climb performance, but about the same speed as a C182. It has 1200 lbs of useful load with a gross weight of 3600 and an empty weight of 2404 or about 670 lbs in useful load with full fuel in CAP configuration. Service ceiling is 27,000 MSL with a turbo.

Public Affairs
Soliciting material for the next issue of The RMR Record
Major Nash, RMR Director of Public Affair (al.nash@rmr-cap.us), is seeking submissions for a new issue of our quarterly regional newsletter.
A reminder… the target audience
 is every CAP member in every unit in the Rocky Mountain Region. The newsletter content differs from the information shared in the monthly Operations Bulletin. Major Nash is focusing on events and people, rather than announcements. Specifically, he is looking for photos with captions, brief columns from program areas, or re-writes of material already used in a Wing magazine, newsletter, or Facebook page. He would like to receive your items by August 15, and intend to publish the next edition of "The RMR Record" as an email distributed PDF file on or around August 20th.
