[Info as of 8/22/14] Hi fellow flyers and friends.
First, some good news… Our website name has been reserved for the next two years. Yes, we plan to keep the club going and that’s good news.>br>
Even better news, Mark Hanson and I just returned from a visit to the Snohomish County offices. We began a submission process for a Special Event, a Fun Fly weekend. We are proposing to have the event at our club field October 3. 4 and 5th. You can read more of the details in this email that was sent out.
Even more current news --> we might not even need the permit for this special event. I'll find out more on Monday 8/25.
[Info from 8/20/14] I did send out an email (8-20-14) documenting the status of our flying field special use permit. You can view the PDF here.
Also, just for documentation purposes, the pre-application info produced by our legal representative is here

As of Friday, July 18th, the field was CLOSED to flying activities by the Snohomish county zoning commission.
The flying activities are still not allowed at this time.
I am hoping to have a club meeting at our club field at 4:30 PM on Saturday, September 13th. With any luck, Camie Anderson or one of the Shockey Planning Group folks will be available to answer your questions directly!
I'm ready to get back to the flying activities again, but the prognosis I have been receiving involves a long undocumented process involving a delay of several months.
Feel free to contact me anytime - best way is via my work phone (425) 788-6045, but I will make an effort to be better at responding to the many, many emails I receive daily!
