Cortes Fly in "Picnic on the beach"

We are planning a group fly in to Cortes Island on July 6th for lunch and a picnic on the beach. Everyone is welcome and I hope to see a good turnout. I have some commitments already and it seems there will be quite a few of the ladies joining us.

Some of you may know that Hansen field has been sold to a developer and this could be our last chance for a fly-in to this field. The Hanson's have been great hosts over the years and I for one will be sorry see them go. They are retiring on the Island.

You can bring your own lunch or have the Hanson's make something up for you. Jim Hanson said he will use his van to drive people down to where the beach steps start. Sounds like fun. Any suggestions?

Sunday June 23 2013 .  This is Tipella  airstrip at the north end of Harrison lake. Long enough for most aircraft and it is in good condition.  It is a gravel strip.

Several of our group flew to Courtney for lunch this weekend. Unfortunately I forgot to take a picture. Air was smooth and lunch at the airport café was good. Hopefully, one of many group fly ins this season.
