Chelan Butte July 17

The official practice day for the PWC and light winds so we all flew to Mansfield and then back to the Butte (50km OR) so we'd be back in time for registration and the party. Initially climbs were only to 7000' or so on the Butte, but on the way back I got to over 11,000' on the flats near Mansfield. Martin et al were also flying and reporting nice conditions all over the place. Beautiful day (had it been a task day we could have easily done a 100km triangle) and it was very relaxing to be so high, no pressure, and an easy glide back over the rim into the Columbia river gorge and landing in the soccer field LZ.
