Pilot Report

No pilot report today; there will not be any field burning due to a voluntary closure for the Air Show of the Cascades.

Notes

Field Burn report for August 27:
We had an excellent pibal with great direction and speed, but we only burned 83 acres of grass, because of the surrounding wildfire smoke, and negative public perception that any field burning adds to the smoke. With the Air Show today, and the wildfires still burning, we did not want to leave any possibility that field burning was adding to the continuously smoky atmosphere.
