El Nido Fly-In (Clearwater BC) Aug 7 - 9th 2015 - TBD Conflicts with 39th Annual Invermere Lakeside Event

Site Guide: viewtopic.php?f=19&t=973

Located in the beautiful North Thompson valley 130 km North from Kamloops.
Good steep TO and humongous landing field right across from General store.

This is a relaxed get together flying weekend with no competition flavor but we'll find out what the XC potential is flying with a bunch of you.
Paragliders and Hang gliders welcome.

A good 7 km gravel road leads you up to TO. 4WD and 2WD with a higher ground clearance will make it up easily. Park right at launch.

Saturday @ 10.00 hrs: Pilot meeting at the Birch Island Grocery store:
For the new pilots: site briefing, waiver signing, check HPAC insurance... transportation to TO.
11.00 / 19.00 hrs = fly all day long
Sunday @ 10.00 hrs = Pilot meeting at the Birch Island grocery store.... transportation to TO.
11.00 / 19.00 hrs = fly all day long

From the Wells Grey info center in Clearwater, drive 10.5 km North on Hwy 5. Look for a big yellow sign that says "Birch Island campground"
It's a great campground for tenting and RV's with full hook ups.
This camping is at walking distance from the LZ which is right across the grocery store / liquor store / gas station at Birch Island.

‘The Painted Turtle' = stylish great dining with a great view of the mountains on the shore of Dutch Lake. (In town of Clearwater )
For breakfast the place to be is the 'Flour Meadow Bakery & Cafe' 300 m from the Wells Grey visitor info center on the Clearwater Valley Road........(In town of Clearwater)
Note : Please bring your own snacks and drinks.

Event Frequency = 145.500

TELUS users have great coverage here. Rogers Cell phone reception is poor at the flying site!!
There is a downloadable app called ROGERS ONE NUMBER which will allow Rogers clients to get cell coverage by borrowing from TELUS relays
