Save the Butte

Happy 4th of July!!! Summer is here and the skies look amazing. Its been a crazy time for everyone and we are so excited to be able to have the Butte open for flying this summer. But we NEED your help to keep it open.

Due to the shutdowns and the neccessary cancellation of this season’s events we are unable to cover the annual managment costs of Chelan Butte. We need everyone’s help to keep the Butte Open.

We are asking that all pilots flying Chelan make an annual donation to the club to help us cover costs and make some much needed site improvements like a live weather station and a permanent toilet on launch.

Donations can be made on the website by paypal or credit card.

(if you can give more there is a seperate donations page and every dollar is appreciated and spent locally on preserving and improving flying in Chelan)

Everyone who donates will get really cool recognition on the website and the honor of supporting such a magical flying site.

I want to thank everyone for supporting flying in Chelan. This is one of the most magical places in the country with an incredible history of Free-Flight. I just took on management of the club last year and it has been a learning process navigating all the behind the scenes work that goes into keeping our sites open and our sport alive.

Thanks again and I hope to see you in the skies above Chelan soon!
