Salem Soaring forecast looks great
Steve Forslund: SOARING FORECAST FOR SALEM, OR         DATE...4/18/2014...12Z (Based on model generated sounding profile) NOAA Salem soaring forecast looks nice! THERMAL INDEX (TI), TEMPERATURE of CONVECTION (TOC) and POTENTIAL LIFT at each level HEIGHT      |   TI   | TOC  |  POTENTIAL LIFT 4000 FT ASL |  -5.
dave_blizzard: Meeting Mark and Luke and Cornelius Rd. at 10:30.
Jay Z: I need to head the other way today and may give Bingen a shot this afternoon.  If it blows out, a hike in the (partial) sun would be nice. From: [] On Behalf Of Sent: Friday, April 18, 2014 9:28 AM To:
Steve Forslund: Rain Saturday so a bit prefrontal. Looks like too much west wind for Hoover. If I was home I would try Elk rock early (could be strong west later ) or go to Angora  early and try and find an upper launch which would probably double the hike.  A bold move might be Hebo or Kutch. Sollie seems reasonab
Stan Mordensky: I'm going to opt out as well.
jimyb: No response.   I’ve decided not to head to either. Jim
dave_blizzard: I agree.  Anybody interested in car pooling from the Cornelius Rd. Fred Meyers?
jimyb: Friday morning forecast shows possibilities at both Sollie and Hoover with neither being outstanding but both showing some merit.  I’m thinking Sollie due to the shorter drive, better launch, and better chance for multiple flights.  Other thoughts? Jim B. From: dave_blizzard Sent: Friday, April 18,
dave_blizzard: Also looking to fly today.  Will check back after the 9:00 forecast update.
Stan Mordensky: I'd also be interested in Detroit Lake. PB is no longer looking light. I've never flown Detroit. What time are people looking to get there? Stan
Luke: I was originally thinking coast (clo/kiwanda/sollie depending on what the wind is like upon arrival) but I would prefer Detroit Lake if people are going out there.  I can get an early start if there are more early risers. Luke From: Sent: Thursday, April 17, 2014 6:0

Dave Cantrell: Being brakes is just a safety thing, I am surprised Foresland even has brakes on his bike.  Your wig is tilting by the way. DC (anonymous) ________________________________ From: "" To:; Cascade Paragliding Club
