It will have it's own site to sign up on which I believe Jim Monaco will be handling. As we get closer to the event I will be able to provide more info.

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.
Thanks,
Donnie

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...

Yikes! Good point. Just looked at the calendar. 2/16 is the Spousal Unit's birthday. So I am absolutely dead meat for the F3J, even if the jerk I work for gave me the time off!!
