We will be able to fly in the Crestline/Marshall area, just don't go west of Sugarpine Peak.
Silverwood Lake would be a good reference landmark as well.
We need a few volunteers to help out at the event. Basically we have set up covered but need 2-3 people on hand to swing pilots around prior to their toss. Any takers? Please call / txt / email me if you're available.
