Union Middle School Closed

I rode by Union over the weekend and the fence has been changed so it can be locked. It was with signs saying the school is closed.

Castillero Middle School

I am going to checkout Castillero Middle School tomorrow 5/24.

I've flown there several times during the quarantine and it has always been empty and unlocked (I don't think that it can be locked due to openings in the fences). The field is grassy, small, sometimes has soccer goals but is useable for DLGs. I'll report my findings.

Castillero Report

Castillero Middle School's field is open and DLG friendly.

All gates are open and are posted with signs saying that its Open Space field is open for athletic activities during the Coronavirus quarantine with distancing rules .

The field is about as long as Kennedy and about half as wide with a dog bone shape. See Google Maps to compare it to your favorite flying fields.!4d-121.879063 I park on McAbee under the big tree near Leyland Dr.

This morning, the grassy field was recently mown and devoid of soccer goals or other obstructions. The wind was calm at 9:30AM and grew to a gusty 5mph at 11AM. There were a couple of baseball players practicing pitching but they were nowhere near me and I expect them to gone when the economy reopens. Being unfamiliar with the surrounding air I stayed over the grassy area.

If anyone is interested in checking out the field please give me a call or text,

DLG flying at Kennedy on Sunday 6/14

Take this with a huge grain of salt....

It is rumored that Kennedy is now unlocked so I will check the situation tomorrow morning (Sunday 6/14) and will report here what I find. The wind is forecasted to be calm early with 6mph wind around 11:30am so I plan to be there by 9:30am.


UPDATE Sunday Evening:

Kennedy is indeed open. Its COVID signs and DO NOT CROSS tape have been removed and the gates near the basketball courts are unlocked and propped open. The lawn is green, recently mowed and free of obstructions.
