Message from our Field Chief!

Looks like someone accessed the West pits by going around the North end of the field. With all the water we have had they drove right through it and made some really nice ruts where the East/West runway would run. Landing long into the West could end very badly.

Remember the West pit access is around the South end along the ditch. Also the West pit is
only open when the field is dry and this summer has been very wet so if not sure pit on the East side. Also should you make a mistake trying to access the west pits when to wet leaving ruts around the South end along the ditch would be the best place. Also please park along the ditch on the West side and stay as close to the ditch as you can when turning around. No need to go any farther then half way on the fabric runway as you can see in the picture it gets wet farther North. The field is still very soft since it was tilled farmland up until a few years ago and ruts even when dry.

Wham is a volunteer driven club and volunteers spend their time and in some cases their own money in helping the club and it's members. Showing respect for the field is in the best interest of all members.

Thanks.

Please refer to the
WHAM West Pit Procedure for more information.
