2014 Blanchard Bash

It’s that time again! Come fly your brains out and camp out with your bros June 6-8. Blanchard has been going off daily the last two weeks with high cloudbases and lots of long flights distance and duration.  You know the drill. Camping at our house at the base of the road to launch on Friday and Saturday night. Bon Fire and potluck on Saturday with BBQ Chicken and sockeye salmon. Breakfast on Sunday. Lots of family fun in store here. Too much to mention! Hotels near by for those less inclined to camp. These dates were chosen to coincide with DNR's big volunteer work party on Saturday morning. Work party Karma always yields great flying and is very important this year. Our past participation has payed off big as DNR has agreed to fall trees in the immediate launch areas as the first step in a much larger vegetative plan design just for us. We are well on our way to making Blanchard a permanent flying site and a large turnout will go a long way to show our support for this world class flying site. Lunch will be served to DNR volunteers on Saturday.  The Bash is a fund raiser for the North Cascades Soaring Club. A suggested $25.00 per pilot donation will go towards meals and support NCSC site improvements, insurance, and land owner appreciation. If you have come in the past you know how much fun it is and if you haven't joined us yet you are in for a big surprise! We are 200yds up the gravel road to launch on the right. See you at the Bash!

300 Peaks

If you haven’t gone a tour with Matty Senior and Brad Sanders yet you are missing out.  I’m sure this new venture will be fantastic and just as horizon expanding as their other adventures in Nepal and Bali.
