    The Big Raffle is back for 2021.

    It has its own information thread.

    The raffle drawing will not be held at the Johnson Creek fly in, but circumstances permitting, I will be there to sell tickets.

    Here is the raffle information link: https://idahoaviationfoundation.org/raffle.php

    Hey all, I'll look at a keg of Sockeye. I can donate one, order another if you all want but will include that in the cost of meals. Sorry.. I can only afford to donate one. We will be ordering this week though so let me know ASAP.

    Important Update from Fly In Captain Bob:

    Sulfur Creek is ONLY available to us (folks flying in) on SATURDAY for up to 40 airplanes. They are booked on Friday and Sunday, so don't go there expecting to be fed. The are also open on Thursday, but you should make a reservation.

    Garden Valley is having its usual fly in breakfast on Sunday, so that is a good stop.

    Captain Bob is checking on the other options for fly out eating so stay tuned!

    One of the things we are keeping an eye on are fires. There are already some fire TFR's in the region. You will recall this event used to be in August, but the fires were so bad it was moved to June. Valley County, where McCall and Yellow Pine are located is having an abnormally dry year, so we will monitor this over the next week and hope they get some rain!

    Also this means we have to be super careful about campfires, etc.

    Thank you for this. I fly smokejumpers out of mccall and we already have jumped two fires in the area in the last week. Things are definitely dry.

    just a reminder, if you see smoke anywhere, TFR or not, please treat it at least like it’s the center of a class D airspace. All fires have what we call a Fire Traffic Area around it, and any smoke could have aircraft working over it or enroute. Keep your eyes open and use your radio.

    hoping for the days off to fly out to this fly-in and meet some of you!
    HAVE FUN. DON'T DIE.

    This will probably come up elsewhere, and not trying to hijack the the thread, but here's what the FTA looks like. It is NOT a TFR, and it's not regulatory. It's simply a communications protocol for us firefighting aircraft. However, we assume there is one of these over every smoke whether there are resources on scene yet or not. FireTrafficArea.pdf

    Yes, but the red circles depicted in that screen shot ARE TFRs, NOT Fire Traffic Areas. Look at Foreflight.....

    Like any other Restricted Area, any aircraft can request permission to enter the TFR. The trick is finding the frequency and entity that can legally provide clearance to enter same.

    Better to stay away....believe me.

    Mike, in MY screen shot that is correct - those are TFR's NOT fire areas. Here is a "live map" of current fires which gives you a little more: https://idfg.idaho.gov/ifwis/maps/realtime/fire/

    I feel like I made it clear I was differentiating between the two. Point here being that just because there ISN’T a TFR doesn’t mean that it’s a good idea to go have a look when you see even the smallest smoke.

    Right, I just didn't want folks to think that those red circles in the screenshot of the map that Steve posted were NOT TFRs.

    You're absolutely right...if you see smoke, stay well clear. As you well know, it takes some time to spool up a TFR, and in the meantime, there can be a lot of traffic around a fire.

    For anyone interested:
    I live in McCall and work at the jump base. I have spare beds and can help with a car time permitting if anyone ends up stuck in McCall. I have that Saturday off and am planning to come out, so if there’s anyone that desperately needs food, gear, gas, parts, etc. I’ll do what I can. You can pm me for my phone number. Looking forward to this!
    HAVE FUN. DON'T DIE.

    I’m gonna echo the fire danger comments from above. An exceptionally hot spring which tanked the snowpack is causing a lot of hand-wringing. This may not be the very best year for getting too spicy on strips you’re not terribly familiar with. Also, keep them campfires contained.

    The fire danger in most of the west is real... Forests are closing everywhere in the west and I suspect we are just getting to JC in time. Something for all of us to be thinking about. Winifred is green and cool but with 100 degrees (very unusual) and wind in the forecast, it won't take long to dry it out if that persists. I'll double post this on the Breaks page as well. Ralph
