At 5pm the National Weather Service said, "A chance of showers and

of the storms could be severe. Patchy fog before 9am. Otherwise, cloudy,

Directions to site:
Lakeside Cemetery is located in Hamburg, NY which is about 10 miles
southwest of Buffalo, NY at the Hamburg Exit 57 of the NY State Thruway.
Bear right after the toll booth onto Camp Road (Route 75). Proceed through
the traffic light at Southwestern Blvd.(Route 20). The entrance to Lakeside
Cemetery is on the left, less than 1/4 mile from the light. The watch is
normally conducted half way between the entrance and the woods.
An alternate site for easterly wind flights is at the William Williams Ball
Park, located on Rogers Rd. Take Route 20 south from Camp Rd. Turn right at
the Rogers Rd. traffic light, just past the Walmart store. The entrance to
the ball park is on the left just before the railroad crossings.
