Applegate Open 2024 is cancelled

It is with great disappointment that we must inform you of the cancellation of this year’s Applegate Open. Unfortunately, despite our best efforts, we did not reach the minimum number of registrants required to host a meaningful competition.  As of April 30, we only had 34 confirmed pilots, far below the original planned 100 and still below the financial contingency plan we had worked out, which required only 40 attendees.

However, we encourage you to still come fly with us and explore other flying opportunities at Woodrat Mountain and Applegate Valley this year. Our annual Star Thistle Fly-in, taking place from May 31 to June 2, and the Woodrat Cup series paragliding competition, featuring 5 tasks, and running from May 1 to September 30, are both excellent alternatives. Moreover, both events are free for all local and visiting pilot members of RVHPA. Further details can be found at

With deep regrets,

Terri and Dan
