Ocean Ridge SectionalHello supporters of Ocean Ridge Airport,

I want to personally thank you for making our fundraising effort a success. While we didn’t reach our target, we did make a lot of progress.

And as luck would have it, we were able secure a slurry contract for a much lower price than we had planned on. We had planned for the worst case scenario of having to pay for full mobilization of a contractor–and in Gualala that would have been staggering. But we were able to piggy back with a contractor doing work nearby so we didn’t have to pay for the whole mobilization. We saved ourselves a bundle!
