at Owen Sound / Billy Bishop Regional Airport,
I arrived after dark, someone was doing circuits on 18, but the weather I got from Wiarton was favoring 36, however it was only at 2knots.
By the time I got there, they were done with their circuit work so I was all alone. I overflew the field, 500' above circuit altitude and trying to find the windsock. From my interpretation of the CFS, it should be closer to the threshold of 36. Alas, I couldn't find it.
I proceeded to land on 18, and on my roll out, found the windsock. It was closer to the middle of the runway, than what the CFS depicted. hmm.. Maybe I should submit a correction?
The runway has a pretty significant slope to it, especially landing on 18.
It was easy to find at night, the beacon was one of the brighter ones I've seen.
