Hi all-

I'm hoping to get some guidance from the community (particularly anyone in the CGKA leadership) on two questions:

1) edit: question removed. Apparently i made a big faux pas with the contents of this post originally, sorry gang! I didn't realize this topic was so historically charged and had gotten more so last season with the tragic events at the spot in question. I was out of the country all of last year so didn't monitor the forum or the news about gorge spots.

2) Is there a master list somewhere of what is and isn't affected by covid closures? Dougs and the event site (excluding the marina) are obviously closed, and I saw the announcement from city of Moser. Is there somewhere where we can look at a summary of spots that are open vs closed?

Disclaimer on this: my plan is to remain social distanced- I'm aggressively quarantined with family so I'd arrive with one family member who will help launch and land if conditions are too hairy for doing so solo and then will sit apart from everyone and read.

Thanks in advance for any input!

Hi all-

1) I've seen some great posts here recently on how to respect local rules at the event site and how to stay safe while parking (and thus protect the site access) at the Wunderbar- really appreciate the information, the more informed we all are the better we can do at keeping all these spots open.

Could someone provide a similar summary about Lyle? Whether it's ok to park across the street in that little lot, how to get down to the launch the safest and most rule-abiding way, etc? I've kited there a couple times and my impression has always been there's not a good way to avoid the railroad tracks while getting down to the water- I'd like to do a better job as a community member so I'm trying to get more informed.




Yo, johnnyp per your advice at the bottom of your forum handle, I suggest you "seek council" by using the search function up above.

Here is you onetime free-be from me. . . and per your request.

Please read these three posts on "fight club" aka Lyle and most, if not all of your Q's should be answered (except any CV-19 stuff as the posts were written before the outbreak):

There you go. Be save out there and stay healthy!

Edited my original post since it was made clear to me that I was unintentionally pushing buttons by mentioning this spot, apologies.

Sasquatch: I didn't use the search function originally because I was looking for up to date info from this year, but having read the linked posts I now realize that things happened last year that would inform the situation this year in a way I wasn't aware of.

Thanks all
