Flying access meeting

Pilot get together to discuss ideas about how to secure access for the flying community at Ben's Crow Inn/ Cobb's Knob ridge soaring site. Go.

Tuesday March 16
5:30 p.m.

Hyde Park Pub
1501 North 13th Street
Boise, ID 83702
United States
(208) 336-9260

What I hope happens at this meeting:

- that we can identify 2 people that we all mutually respect to act as our point pilots

- that those 2 individuals have the most access-issue experience of the group - (preferably with free flight access experience)

- that some of us (myself included) can put aside certain personal opinions and ideas that could hurt us as a whole

- that there is enough beer on tap More after the jump...

Boise City now owns The Crow ridge soaring site!

Boise's Crow Inn ridge soaring site is now owned by the city of Boise! http://www.publicbroadcasting.net/idaho/news.newsmain/article/1/0/1621597/Local.News/Boise.Buys.Hammer.Flat Not to be developed into houses and strip malls


Aaron Beck Now that it is publicly owned and not slated for development do we pilots continue the status quo or should we look into options through the foundation for free flight? Utah pilots? People with experience? Ideas?
