Mt. St. Helens Combine Annual Picnic
July 10, 2021 

The event will be held at Red Sunset Park, 2403 NE Red Sunset Dr, Gresham, OR 97030 (suburb of Portland).

The Mt St Helens Combine does an annual picnic fundraiser in July of each year. The purpose is to make it possible for club and combine flying to stay within reason for both new and old flyers. We always try to have extra clocks available for new flyers until they are certain to stay.

We have 2 clubs with 15 -20 active flyers. We have had a resurgence of interest from younger potential flyers and between our 2 clubs have had 8 new members join.

This annual event is to educate the new flyer. We bring in a keynote speaker to present on different topics that will help the new flyer as well as give new ideas to the old flyer. Regional 4H groups and FFA are invited to attend.

This year Andy Waclaw from Chicago is coming to speak on selection and preparation of breeders. We will have several activities, raffles and auctions of birds.
Birds have been donated by: Doug Swingley/Iditarod, Jerry Heilman, Crazy Al, Ken Christopher, Steve Strechi, Rick Nanez, Andy Waclaw, Frank McLoughlin, Steve Furlonge/Irish Syndicate. Eric Houchin/ Fleet Washington and several others.

For more information, contact Mike Schiele (503-544-9699).
