Ute Airpark conditions: 2007-02-17

This afternoon, I stopped by the airpark to determine its flight-worthiness. Here's my report:

Entrance to the field is clear of snow, and is very drive-able even by a sedan. There is little concern driving onto the field. However, down near the clubhouse the field is still pretty wet and muddy. My tires were caked, and it was obvious that at least one of us had gotten a little stuck and had peeled out. I reckon I wasn't the first guy to check out the field this weekend :)

Anyway, I would not recommend flying from the field yet. It's just too soggy at the moment. I don't think any car with a reasonable tread on it will get stuck, but the mud cakes on clothes, shoes, and tires.

Field Chalking and club needs

In our discussions at last night's meeting, we seemed to arrive at three decisions:
1. We could really use a field chalker to mark out our planned runways, pilot stations, and parking area at the Ute Airpark. Does anybody own one, or will we need to rent or buy one? They retail for between $100 and $400.
