Blanchard Mt Fly-In

Members of the Hang Gliding and Paragliding community are meeting this weekend for their annual fly-in. Take off is from the launch site high on a shoulder of Blanchard Mt and the landing is in Chuckanut Conservancy's Treasurer Thom Wake's front yard.

This is an excellent opportunity for photographers to find good compositions of these pilots.  It is also used as a fundraiser for the Chuckanut Conservancy as many of the pilots stop by the booth set up by Thom and Kris Wilkening and generously donate. The pilots and organization are very appreciative of Thom Wake for allowing them to land in his field over the years and Thom generously donates the proceeds of these donations to the Conservancy.

Stop by the table Thom has set up and buy a Chuckanuts map and bumper sticker and donate to a good cause and organization.
