Thank you for the kind offer. Its been years since I have been to Hearst Castle and that area. I am not sure I have time to get up there prior to event but if I do I will let you know.

As shown on your google earth map I have a concern about the location of Doug's place. If we launch from there we would have to turn onto highway 58 for a section of each flight if we use our usual turnpoints. I do not want to use highway 58 for any portion of the course. In years past we used it, but I and others felt it was too fast and busy from a safety standpoint.

One other possibility would be to launch from the usual spot behind Ken's restaurant and then use Doug's place to camp for those who want to camp and store our equipment there overnight.

Rick, thanks for looking into to this. It's always good to have options.

Anybody, please feel free to chime in with ideas/opinions.


John
