My folks moved to a place on 49th St NE next to the airfield in the mid 80's.  Along with us, the local kids loved to run up and down the field with anything we could get our hands on.  Mostly trail or dirt bikes.  It wasn't in use at that point, but still very clear of trees.  If I can find any old pictures (unlikely), I'll post them.

If you look at the parcel viewer, it's still clearly an airfield piece of land.
Flew into Ashland on Thursday just for something to do. The runway is nice condition and it's about a 20 minute walk into town. No loaner cars but they can arrange a rental car if you give them a day or two notice. Beautiful terrain in that area.

Hi All,

I am interested in flying aerial survey missions for wildlife observation, tracking, and management. Are any of you out there in the industry? PM me, please.

Thank you,
Courtney Holley

Weather was warm, but relatively low humidity.  The hangar that they use for the festivities provided ample shade and the y fans on for circulating air.

I thought the turnout was excellent, as it was last year.

Chit-chat / Re: Questions about Northwest Aviation Conference

The best place to suggest better advertising / PR would be with the Washington Aviation Assn , which puts on the NW aviation conference.
Here's a link to the website for their 2017 event.

I guess the Rachel you reached out to works for that organization.
I don't know how long you've been in the northwest, but as I recall this event has been going on every year since at least 1996 (when I started going).
Most if not all of the active GA pilots I know are aware of it without having to be told every year.
Unfortunately aviation in general is a bit of an "insiders club" and this event is just another example of that. 
But I'm guessing there are some other regional events with similar career opportunities.
I believe both Alaska & Idaho host a big annual aviation show, and I'm sure there are others.

I was gonna go again this year but blew it off when I saw Olympia was forecast to hit 95.
TV news this morning said it was actually 97!
How was the heat at Cougar Mtn? And the turnout?

Sa 100  Starduster (one place biplane) 150 hp, 830#.  Not fast but pretty agile.  I enjoy it, wife calls it my mistress.  Must be because right now Deathtrap is getting more love, and money.
