Now for the itinerary! Here is the itinerary and route plan for the weekend. Also, this itinerary with step by step directions is available at http://tinyurl.com/Dragon2016Itinerary

We will also have a schedule radio check at 10:45AM on Saturday morning to make sure everyone that has a 2 way radio is on the correct channel. We will be using channel 4 with no encryption. This means if you have a radio that has encryption, you will set the big number to "4" and the little number to "0". If the little number is not set to "0" you may hear radio communications but nobody will hear you back!
