This link shows the location we fly from. If you search for Molalla River State Park, it will take you a bunch of trees about a mile away.

The flying site is about 40 Minutes from the Oregon/Washington border via I-205 and also 40 minutes from downtown Portland.

And if you aren't really, really, careful, you will have a glider in those trees !

Ah, but Red, you forgot the cnc cut foam core

And they do fly, really, really, well.

Somewhat related to the Kaydet?

So, is the April 14th SASS HLG contest still happening? If so, I think I will make the trip across the state to fly.

Ken and I are excited for it as well. We will be driving over from Spokane Saturday morning. It will be fun to use my new Topsky in a contest.
See you all then, Ben

I will be maidening my new Katanawanabe at the contest. Paul's X2 wing on Adam's fuse with Brian's tailfeathers. No I won't be flying it in the contest unless it shows more promise than my TS2.

wrong descision, wrong time
If I get the OK from the Boss (wife) I'd like to come by on Saturday just to observe a competition. My TS2 is still in storage, so I won't have a plane to fly. I'd also like to learn how to time etc. If the F3k android app is being used I have an android phone and a tablet someone can use.

Heath,

You are more than welcome to come out and watch. Likely you'll get to help and time too. Bring the driod, they work great. Lunch is served for a small donation too. Looking forward to meeting you.

You will need the guest code to get in the gate. PM Red or me and we will get it to you.
