    11th Annual Spring Soar for Fun

    Click image for larger version  Name:	HighPoint Aerial.JPG Views:	321 Size:	153.0 KB ID:	39944

    Date: Wednesday, March 25 - Sunday, March 29, 2020

    Location: HighPoint Aviation Airfield near Wiley Ford, West Virginia (3 miles south of Cumberland, MD along WV Route 28)

    Donation: $20/day, $60 for 3 or more days

    Registration: https://www.scalesoaring.com/cumberl...g-registration


    Directions:

    From I-68 on the cross-town bridge over Cumberland, take Industrial Blvd/Airport Exit.

    As you merge onto Industrial Blvd., stay in the right lane.

    Take Canal Parkway Exit and continue on the Parkway until crossing the Potomac River Bridge into West Virginia. Canal Parkway becomes West Virginia Route 28 after crossing the bridge (Entrance to Cumberland Regional Airport is located to the left after crossing the bridge).

    Continue south on Route 28 for approximately 2.5 miles to Heavener Road (Route 28 Auto Sales is located at this intersection).


    Travel 0.2 miles to the top of the hill on Heavener Road (paved road).

    At the top of the hill, turn left onto the unpaved road (Commercial road sign says Thicket Road, but there is a wooden sign on tree that says Ridge Road).

    Continue 0.3 miles on this road, until you cross under the power lines.

    Turn left onto Sunny Side Drive.

    Travel 0.1 miles on Sunnyside Drive to the divide and stay to the right at the divide.

    Continue on this road 1.2 miles to the airfield on top of the mountain (there is a hairpin turn about half way up).

                  Hi guys,

                  Even though I registered a while ago, I doubt I will be attending due to potential boarder problems. I would hate to be camped out on someones couch indefinitely.....
                  Bummer because I have my Bidule all ready for it's maiden.....
                  Fired her up for the first time last week.

                    Considering the uncertainty of the world's situation regarding this viral disease outbreak, I have decided to cancel the Spring Soar for Fun Event. This crisis will pass, we will get it behind us...meantime, we all need to stay home, stay healthy, and stay safe. Look at this as a chance to build something new!

                      Bummer, but I'm sure we all understand. Looking forward to kicking off the season.

                        This is a true crisis in the world, as much as I want to go play with our airplanes Its far more important to stay safe and avoid any large gatherings. I agree with you Jim.

                          Yes, agree it is good we do our part in the ongoing attempt to minimize the spread of this virus.

                          I was thinking this was on your mind Jim. Disappointed but agree we will all be better off starting the season a month late than having all our friends at risk.

                            Don’t forget to cancel your hotel reservation. It seems I was the first to tell Fairfield Inn the event was cancelled.
