You can be a great help to the event organizers and volunteers by ensuring your trash gets thrown into a barrel, can, or bag. Trash is a true hazard for most planes, but especially jets. A soda bottle sucked into an engine could potentially cause a catastrophic accident. We would greatly appreciate your co-operation in helping to keep our grounds clean and safe.
