1-31-2016: The results are in and the entire slate has been elected.
The members listed below comprise the 2016 CSS Board.
Hey Everyone, it's that time of year again to hold our annual elections.
We have a Write-Iin space for each office on the ballot (links below) that you will be able to print & mail in.
This ballot is as follows, these people having agreed to take these offices:
I would like to start a CSS FFF insurance capital donation pool.
It is an exceptionally worthy cause. I'll pony up 500 bucks to start it off.
Donate to CSS, then CSS will in turn donate the funds toward the FFF campaign.
It is once again the season of giving and CSS is partnering with the San Bernardino City/County Fire Department (SBCFD) for the Christmas annual toy drive. Any and all CSS members, family and friends interested in participating are asked to donate a toy for a child between 4 - 16 years old. Toys must be delivered to AJX no later than Wednesday, December 9th to ensure SBFD receives them timely.
Just a FYI- San Bernardino Airport is having an airshow this coming Saturday and Sunday.
The TRF does not reach AJX

We will be able to fly in the Crestline/Marshall area, just don't go west of Sugarpine Peak.
Silverwood Lake would be a good reference landmark as well.
We need a few volunteers to help out at the event. Basically we have set up covered but need 2-3 people on hand to swing pilots around prior to their toss. Any takers? Please call / txt / email me if you're available.
