Chevron Oil Refinery Employees?

Postby JoeF » Mon Jul 13, 2015 8:23 am

When will an employee of the Chevron Oil Refinery be photographed flying a hang glider at Dockweiler?
Has such person already been photographed? Who will be the first? Consider taking a lunch break by walking over to Windsports and taking a flight!
