As part of the agreement with Hamilton Conservation Authority we are required to notify them when we fly at Westover. Please follow this procedure on the actual day you decide to fly at Westover.

On the day you decide to fly at Westover, check the SOGGI message board to see if another member has posted and already informed Hamilton Conservation Authority of flying at Westover that day. If another member has already posted for the day, you need to do no more.
If a message board post has not been made on the day you decide to fly at Westover, email or make a phone call to the Superintendent at Valens Lake Conservation Area.
The email address and phone number can be obtained from the SOGGI Secretary or another member of the Executive. We are not publicly disclosing this information to reduce the possibility of misuse.
Provide your name, state you are a SOGGI member and that you will be flying on this day.
If you phone first and do not receive a reply, or cannot leave a voicemail, then send an email.
Immediately after emailing or making the phone call, post a message on the SOGGI message board that you are flying at Westover that day and that you have informed Hamilton Conservation Authority. The purpose of this post is to avoid duplicate notifications to Hamilton Conservation Authority for a given day.

Nice, I might try to join...

However I see the winds are coming from the NW? I thought this slope favored more of a SW/SSW wind? Are both sides flyable?

Hello folks...

So I was very interested in going to Westover today and checked my tool I have used for some time on "wind" (Windy.com). There is a great app for Apple and Android and the webiste is great, wonderful visual cues and validation of where and when the wind is coming from -> https://www.windy.com/43.336/-80.083?43.336,-80.085,16

I am not sure if we have this type of tool but i told me today is not the day to fly! Hopefully in the near future :-)

Also of note, I set an alert that sent to my email for when the "perfect" flying conditions are coming 12 and 24 hours before...helpful.

Karl
