Can-Am Black Mtn Flyin

The North Cascades Soaring Club is gearing up again to throw another great bi-wing fly-in. If you have never/ever attended this event you owe it to yourself to make the short drive up the Mt Baker highway just east of Bellingham to fly one of our best sites. Black Mt is a 4500' site with amazing views of the Mt Baker, the Cascades, the Fraser Valley, and the San Juans. Camping is adjacent to the park like landing zone next to beautiful Silver Lake so bring your wing, your family and get read to have fun! This year is a special event as it marks the 35th annual Can Am which was started as a friendly competition between American and Canadian glider pilots in 1976. We want to make this years event as competitive as the first so show your Canadian pride and come try to win the trophy back if you can!

I would like to participate but I'm just visiting the area (not a member of NWParagliding). How can I sign up? Do I need to sign up?

I'm planning to drive up to Black Mt. early tomorrow morning, but don't know much beyond that.

I figured this may be the place to ask. What are the regulations with hike and fly in the Mt Baker National Forest. I am from Canada and I have searched all over the Forest websites with no information. Specifically I wanted to hike out of the Heather Meadows area and fly . Of course I would locate appropriate LZ's beforehand.
