Concrats to all of you early birds out there; way to celebrate opening day! Looks like Duane has a new glider with a small empennage...for pitch assist maybe?
Big wind is forecast for Thursday, accompanied by rain, unfortunately.
Chris, the LZ is a grassy saddle. Only dangers are hidden rocks near where the cars park and getting blown back into trees in high wind. The Portland club (PASS) has scheduled an event for Saturday, and it is a good club to become a member of.
We share Peterson Butte with hang- and paragliders, and we have an excellent relationship with these groups. We ask every visitor to respect and help maintain that.
Please be aware that Peterson Butte is private property, and that we must have AMA insurance to fly there.
