For those do not use email, we have included the phone numbers of the people responsible for these events. Phone lists are tough for us to facilitate, so please refer to the bulletins list or website first for updates and details.

Unfortunately, in nature, weather is important to the success of the event and dates set in stone can change and events be postponed. We will attempt to make announcements of these changes on our website and send APAS Bulletin emails to those subscribed.
