Folks,

I find myself in Everett, WA with 3 hours or so to kill every 2 weeks and would like to fly during that time.

Does anyone know of a good place?  I am very close to the downtown area in Everett.  Maybe Marine Park?

Thanks,
-Tom

I;m in Lake Stevens so we are 15 min from Everett.Marine park is where we used to fly there at the 10th st boat launch.They closed the field and they now use it for overflow parking for the boat launch.That really is the only place that has decent winds,and it sucks the city took it away from us.really isnt any good fields here in the city.Legion park might be ok up on the hill but thats it.Some schools have decent playfields but wind sucks.good luck..

Thanks - I will check those out!

Was the flying field on the north end of Marine park which appears to now be under asphalt?

That would have been a sweet flying field for sure!

Tom-The flying field was south and east of the road as you ddrive in (immediately west of the old boat). A real shame they took it away. I have flown there since when there are no cars but kite is somewhat in peril-except for a "gifted flyer" with initials TP

Scott,  great to hear from you - I was concerned we may have lost you to the power of the sprockets!

So good weather is right around the corner!  There are several of us in the area that need regular flying for sure.  As soon as the weather starts permitting, I say we get a it more serious (or at least get together for some regular flying!).
