David Le: We have about 10 pilots camping out this weekend. Steve's presentation last week with photos and videos raised many eyebrows. We'll have a report of course. On Fri, Jul 19, 2019, 8:53 AM Mike Steed wrote: > This is the one that interests me, viewed from above Brownsville
Coburg Ridge this weekend.
steed: This is the one that interests me, viewed from above Brownsville looking SSE. Probably easiest to get there from Brownsville, though up the backside from Shotgun Creek looks possible too. Like most (all?) sites in Coburg hills, it is a long glide out to decent landing options, but there are a
Longswords LZ is closed to landings in the Applegate valley at Woodrat.
Sam C sundog: Hello all, Please see below. The LongSword LZ is now closed until further notice. From Matt: "Tuesday afternoon, I entered my Tasting Room to be treated to an extremely raucous and bawdy group of pilots apparently intending to enjoy a post-flight Bacchanal. The noise level was so loud we could

-ERiC-MiLLER-: Thanks for posting this here, Monsieur Le. McGowen Creek Rd is the paved road that goes all the way up to what I think would work well as a launch. Sounds like you and Steve have some other ideas that might work as well. I think there's a lot of potential here for good summer flights, esp glass
Global warming...
Discover Paragliding!: The guys that called it global warming, really screwed it up in the beginning. I think we all get that now, finally calling it climate change. It's a bit deal, and it's going to have a lot of negative effects around the planet. Ironically, in my observation and opinion, 'global warming' is going

David Le: Our club needs a good thermic summer site. A few of us are headed to Coburg Ridge, near Coburg, Oregon, this Saturday and Sunday.

Thinking about Silver Star on Friday
-ERiC-MiLLER-: Follow up flight report as I had to boogie to get to Eugene for the Oregon Country Fair 🙂 Pete and Co. launched as I was halfway up the mountain and Pete got up easily enough so I was excited. It's been a while since I've had a good flight at Silver Star and it was spicier than I remember. By
