SF BAPA Fly-In, Potato Hill, 4/10-4/11 2015

The first BAPA Fly-in for the season will be held at Potato Hill on April 10-11, 2015.

We'll plan a Potluck Dinner on Saturday night.  Please let us know if you plan on attending by replying to (This email address is being protected from spambots.

You need JavaScript enabled to view it. ).  We'll set up an Evite with the attendees where we can plan out dinner, work on rides, etc.

For pilots arriving Saturday morning intending to fly the early session, meet at the LZ at 0900 SHARP to meet vehicles going up to launch.

We will be camping at Dixie Glade campground on the side of Potato Hill. The camping is primitive and somewhat remote: there is an outhouse and fire pits but no water, and the nearest store is about 40 minutes away. Please plan to bring all the food and water you will need with you.  There is a 5 dollar per night fee for camping there.

NOTE TO NEWER PILOTS:

Potato Hill is informally regulated by BAPA and Sonoma Wings and although there are no rating requirements please be aware that it is a (usually) lee side mountain thermal site with an LZ that often has thermic, turbulent air (it's poppy!). If you have little to no mountain experience Potato can be a good place to build your skills but you should plan to fly early in the day and/or in the evening if conditions allow.

 

See you soon!
