« on: May 24, 2020, 11:37:07 PM »
Just wanted to say thanks to all for an amazing event yesterday; the controllers were spot on (and the chap handling Ground in KSFO was doing a great job under immense pressure :-) )

Is there anyway to sign up for notification of future Calscream events (once you've all recovered from this one  :) )?
We're glad you enjoyed it!
CalScream takes place in May every year. There's not a formal notification. Just keep a lookout on the VATUSA events calendar. Or, check https://calscream.com.
Actually on the very website you refer to, only six of the nineteen(!!) dates listed were in May... ;-)

But if the intent is to hold them in May every year going forward, that's good news.  It was indeed a fantastic event!

Since 2014 it's been in May 5 out of 7 times. The other two times it was in April and June. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
The better statement then is we usually plan for spring or early summer every year.

Anticipate for it to come around next spring as well.

I'm glad you enjoyed!
