The new windsocks are great. Here are a couple of suggestions for the next revision:

1. Cut down on the number of them. Shorter runways (<=4,000ft in Canada, probably similar elsewhere) have only one windsock in the middle of the runway, not one on each end. In fact, smaller airports often have only one windsock for the entire airport, even if there are are multiple runways -- the requirement is just that it be visible from all approaches and the aircraft parking area. A windsock at each end is more of a jet-runway thing.

2. Make sure that the windsocks don't appear on top of another runway -- I've noticed that problem with the windsock for 12 at CYGK (it's on top of runway 01/19).

Thanks and all the best,
