PLEASE sign up early for your "pick" of your operating area. There is a suggestion that you work one day for the Sea Otter Classic (Sat. or Sun.) and the next Sunday for the BSIM. Both of these are OUTSTANDING events to sharpen your operational skills and provide required emergency/health/welfare/safety communications for the event athletes. Due to international schedules both events are held on these weekends.
