The field should be open for flying in the late afternoon. Could be earlier depending on how many pilots we have in LMR, but I don't see it being a problem.

Cool. I cannot afford all the time off required to do a full week in AZ so it will just be the SWC itself for me. No need to get there too early on Friday now either based on this info.

I can do the time away from work, however, it has been made known by the female species (a.k.a. Evereadii spendibus) that another holiday weekend away could be detrimental overall. Thus, I'm looking at the J thing only...

I will be there to help run winches and fly Open. Really looking forward to this!
