SMWSF00 Regional Map
SabMag West Spring Fling '03 Regional Map

The above map shows the 'region' in which SMWSF03 will take place
in Amador County, California, using the town of Pine Grove, CA
as a 'base of operations'. The closest 'major' town would be Jackson,
conveniently NOT shown on this map for clarity (!). Jackson is at the
junction of Hwy 49 and Hwy 88, just to the left and down from the mark-
ers for Pine Grove and Volcano. Pine Grove is 8 miles north of Jackson.

NOTE: These instructions are intended to get you to the region via the
most expeditious means. More scenic routes are, of course, available.
