August 24 Autoslalom - Course Setup

A reminder for those wishing to help with course setup and/or registration and tech inspection, we can get gate access at C.F.B. Edmonton at 7:30am on Sunday. Doug and I will be heading off to Ron's house to pickup the trailer with pylons, tent, etc...and will be back as soon as possible, but in the interim, those arriving at the base can already empty their cars, help Andrew with the waivers / entry forms, and be ready for cone-slinging when we return.

Bring sun-screen and plenty to drink -- the humidex is forecast to be +33 Celsius. Doug K. of the EZCC will be there with the BBQ for lunch again.
