The location of this activity is scheduled to take place on an active U.S. Air Force Base.  Due to the nature of real world events, participation on a military installation can change as this Civil Air Patrol activity is considered a non-priority event.   Although unlikely, it is possible that our facilities at the planned installation will become unavailable to us with short notice.  

In the event of a change, the alternate facility will be held on:
