Xan Harwood-Karlik: Hey all, I’m interested in getting my reserve repacked, will there be someone there comfortable repacking a hang reserve? I’m not sure how (or if) they’re different from a PG one so figured I’d ask. Thanks in advance! Xan
Mark Sanzone: Just saw the movie, it was very good. Fun to see the flying scenes that were filmed at Woodrat, although they were brief. Mark

Laren Hale: Cliffside site report, winds are light, too light to soar, and there is a low ceiling, enough to fly but you can’t see the wind turbines
