2013 PSS Fest sign up thread

Might as well get this party started! We usually wait till March 1st but what the hell, lets go.

Here it is! The long awaited 2013 PSS Festival sign ups are OPEN!

The "official" dates are Saturday May 25th and Sunday May 26th. Of course there will be the unofficial Fermin day on Thursday and the warm up day at Cajon on Friday. If you are coming up to Cajon on Friday I highly recommend you hit the Cajon Pass before 11am. Holiday traffic is a nightmare coming up the pass.

Entry Fee this year is $45. That includes one of our spectacular T-Shirts (Ralph is working on the design and we will preview it when it's ready).

To enter paypal $45 to carlpmaas@sbcglobal.net
Please include your shirt size (L, XL, XXL or XXXL). If you are smaller than a L, you need to eat more!

Also send me an email ( slopescale@att.net ) with the following info;

Name and (RC Groups handle)
AMA Number (Yes you MUST have AMA!)
Phone number
And shirt size

Please note, due to the high cost of the shirts we will NOT be ordering many extras. Shirts will be first come first served.

BE ADVISED, There will be no food for sale at the hill. We have been told by the forest service that we cannot sell food, so bring your own food!

Please also note the Forest Service rules state that there is no camping on Baldy Mesa.

Dinner after the Saturday event will be at Logans Roadhouse. The ISR has reserved a room at Logan's Roadhouse in Fontana Ca.Here are the details.

13480 Baseline Ave
Fontana, CA 92335

"unofficial event hotel is the Holiday Inn Express in Hesperia"

Your welcome to sign up, even if you don't plan on flying, and will guarantee you a shirt and all the other entry rights. We try and have extra shirts (not many), available to sell, but it is not guaranteed at the slope.
Maybe TFLG will comment, as he is handling the shirt arrangements.

We are only ordering T-shirts for the event participants. We will order a few extras for "walk ups". If we have any T-shirts left we will sell them but I would not count on us having any leftovers.

It looks like we are already up to about 30 pilots as of today. That puts us 50% full so don't wait if you want to enter!

Thread clean-up (I deleted most of the "I signed up" posts). Trying to keep the thread event/information related. That way guys don't have to weed through 40 pages of fluff trying to find out something.

That washed out in 2011 also, the rut was deep enough to lose a horse in. Took us hours to fill it in.
