Update on Quilchena.

I was there on the weekend ,June 8 2014, and I spoke with an individual about the airstrip.
She told me that the powers that own Quilchena indicated to her that they will not re open
the airstrip.  It will be closed permanently. She said that it was too much trouble to maintain
and I asked if liability was also an issue and she said yes it was. She said that there was a crash there last year and I suspect that may have been a part of the reason for the closure as well. 

Too bad, it was a nice lunch stop in the summer.
