GO FOR LAUNCH on SATURDAY (but keep an eye on website)

It looks like we will be able to squeek in a launch on Saturday! There is rain coming, so let’s get there early and hope the rain holds off. until at least 3PM. I will try to get there early and be set & ready to go by 1PM.

Winds will be about 9mph, which is not too bad, still — be sure to cut spill holes in your ‘chutes.

BUT… keep an eye on the website and your e-mail…. IF this changes for the worse, we will move to Sunday.

Fellow Rocketeers, We are GO FOR LAUNCH on SATURDAY from 1PM to 3:30PM. The skies will be partly cloudy, the winds moderate at 9mph and the temps in the mid 70’s. Bring your rockets, motors, and drinking water. Sunscreen is a good idea too.

Also, please note that our club was featured in the Hippo this week! See page 25.

Also, also, the President and founder of FlisKits Rocket, Jim Flis and his wife Kathy are planning on attending the launch. You’ve all seen Jim’s kit the Frick-n-Frack fly at just about every launch – one of the coolest kits out there. Not sure what Jim will bring, but he’s has some of the funnest rocket kits on terra firma and I encourage you to check them out.
