Mark Sanzone: It that time of year to renew our chapter with USHPA. As part of that process I have been reviewing/updating site guides. I realize experienced pilots don't really look at them but if any of you know of changes we should make please let me know. There are only a few club members with access to
Rod Ragsdale: Just wanted to say thanks to CPC and all you guys are doing for freeflight in the NW. I enjoyed Cliffside, Pine Mountain, Woodrat, Oceanside and Chehelem these past 3 months in Oregon. I met some pretty stellar folks and had some memorable flights in some great conditions. Thanks for being so
David Le: A few of us heading out at 9:30.
Mark Sanzone: Rod, Julian and I flew. It Was strong and we were somewhat pinned against the ridge. We all landed out at the farm. Mark Sent from Yahoo Mail for iPhone On Thursday, December 13, 2018, 2:47 PM, Eric Miller wrote: fyi yesterday using the wind reader it was blowing 12mph
Nick Fulmor: Gabe and me are heading out to my brother's farm in Ridgefield or North Plains by the glider Port. If you have a motor and you want to get some air time message me and I'll shoot you the address.

Rod Ragsdale: Windy shows it calming down later in the day. I might be up for a flight after 14:00.
Mark Sanzone: I was looking at Chehalem again but XC skies shows very strong winds at 2K' so I think it will blow out. Anyone flying today? Mark

Rod Ragsdale: Hey, a big thank you to all who came out today and picked us up. Thanks to Mark for hanging out with us and being so patient. Chehelem is a fun place to fly even if it was on the cool side today!
