Slopin' on Orcas Island?

I'll be up on Orcas Island in June... Any good places to fly there?

san juan island cattle point off sw corner right on the bluffs above beach. some of it is actually crunchy friendly. the lift zone higher up along the trees can be pretty tight tho. lower down there is huge field and last i was there it was owned by guy who was a sloper himself so landing there was cool with him. he was selling the place tho

i vaguely recall hearing some flying off mount constitution on orcas once from an informal group of island slopers. im guessing foamies tho only. i tried to do a breif search here for that discussion but no luck. perhaps more mucking around will kick it up.
oh wait, i asked this a couple years ago (hence why i flew cattle i believe)
there used to be a website for the sanjuan island slopers i think its been taken down tho as of late.
keep in mind whidbey (call ploof or brad)

(btw, tx 4 tttgux2! amazing workmanship as usual)
