Over 60 ex-smokejumpers and members of the retired USFS OldSmokeys group attended an Open House on Sept. 21st at the Gobi.
Base tours were given to all attendees followed by a lunch in the Visitor's Center.
The Siskiyou Smokejumper Museum is completely run by volunteers and that message was presented to the group.
