From our COPA friends:

"True to our 2016 pledge, we are going to be making several fly-outs south of the border this year. The first is scheduled for Sat May 21st:  just a short hop across Juan de Fuca Straight to Port Townsend (0S9) which is both a convenient US port of entry and also the host of what is a very nice aviation museum. If you haven’t flown GA across the border yet this is the PERFECT opportunity to give it a try. If you have an up to date passport, there is really no excuse not to join us on this one!

"We are going to make a day of it: meet at the VFC at 0830 to check the weather, review customs procedures etc. We’ll plan for a 10am arrival at 0S9 and to spend a couple of hours at the museum; perhaps even have lunch afterwards(?) Then we’ll review the procedure for returning back to Canada & arrive sometime back at CYYJ in the early afternoon.
