LDRS 40 is almost upon us.

Registration on the lakebed will open Wednesday afternoon. Camping in the LDRS 40 area can also begin Wednesday.

Flights each day will begin at 6AM Pacific time Thursday through Sunday, about a half-hour after sunrise. The best conditions are usually early, so plan to be ready early in the day. Do not count on good conditions continuing after Noon.

High temps and low humidity make it extremely important to stay hydrated, so bring plenty of water, sports drink, and high-SPF sunscreen. Dehydration and heat illness are serious threats in our climate. The only shade on the lakebed is what you bring with you!

Check the planned schedule on our web page. Updates will be posted on Facebook, announced over the PA and 90.1 FM on the lakebed. Web site updates from my cell phone may take longer.
