Hope everyone has managed to stay dry through this horrible weather. There are couple important dates coming up:
The first is the fall high flights for all the students that qualify on the weekend of September 25 and 26 and an option of the evening on September 24. The ground school will be held on Tuesday the 21st of September at 7:00pm for .
The second event will be the fall SIV course held in the Salt Lake City area on October 9,10 and 11. The SIV course has limited availability so please contact us ASAP if your interested for this course.
I hope to see most of you soon as the weather improves
The Golden Glassoff is scheduled for sept 25 (fly 26 if rain). Amy and Jamie are thinking of doing a paid BBQ on the friday, not sure yet.
Entry is $20 includes saturday's supper and dance music.
We'll be allowed and maybe even encouraged to do some maintenance work on the LZ. This is completely voluntary, I'll do some if the weather is not so good. The things to do would be: cutting invading bushes and small trees (chainsaw not necessary), cutting large thistles, shoveling some gopher holes, and misc.

It has been a great summer for flying with many student flights being completed in Golden and other venues. The fall season is well underway in Cochrane and hopefully we will get many flights.
We are planning an SIV for October long weekend and would like to know who would like to attend this course down in UTAH. Please email Vincene to confirm that you would like to attend.
There is also the Golden Glass Off which is an end of the season party out in Golden on September 25 and 26. This event also doubles as our Fall High Flight Course. So we hope to see you all out flying this Fall either in Golden or Cochrane. If you have any questions please feel free to contact either Vincene or myself.

Drive Approximately 5km south of Golden BC on Hwy.95, Turn right at Nicholson Road; Take the first right on Canyon Road to cross the bridge that spans the Columbia River. Proceed to where MacBeath Road splits off to the right. The Ranch will be on your right. Proceed for 1 km along MacBeath Road until you reach the Golden Eco-Adventure Ranch driveway and turn right.
For those that Qualify
As most of you know I will be running my annual Thermal Course in Golden on the weekend of July 11 and 12 ( Bonus Friday Evening the 10th )
Just wanted to let everyone know a couple details.
Its a tight group and everyone knows each other so we should have some fun.
You should all bring these items
GPS(if you have one)
Umbrella for sun or rain
Camp Chair for the morning and evening talks
Warm Clothes including gloves for high altitude
2m radio if you have one if not I will have FRS for everyone
bring your laptop if your interested in downloading your flights from your GPS(bring cables for your gps as I dont have them for all types)
Thats it for now
We will meet Saturday at 8am in whatever Campsite Vincene's trailer is at in the eco adventure ranch or LZ. maybe go for a flight Friday with everyone to check all our gear over and get a flight in.
we will go over a bunch of info during the morning then head up to launch. Time will be tight between groundschool and flying so make sure your ready to go at 8 am with lunch and gear.
Hope for good weather or it will be hours of talking about thermals to make up the time but either way your brains may be mash potatoes by the time were done.
I will be providing dinner at the GEAR on Saturday evening as I have hired Jamie to cook for you all.
I have hired Vincene to take care of us all and of course abuse her amazing driving skills hopefully.
The cost this year is 350$ no gst ...haha
I prefer cash as then I wont have to charge more for taxes...wink wink
