Launch on SUNDAY (July 15) 1 to 3:30PM

Fellow Rocketeers, The weather for Saturday is showing strong indications that we’d have to contend with thunderstorms in the afternoon – pretty much right in the middle of our launch window.   And let’s face it, 1 Billion Volts of Lightning vs Baby Bertha Rocket would not, quite frankly, end well for the rocket, or anyone in the vicinity for that matter. Discretion being the better part of Valor, we’ll move the launch to Sunday (1 to 3:30PM).

Winds on Sunday should be very low, so high flying is a fine idea. Bring water & sunscreen. We should have a Pop-Up or two for shade (Eric? Dave?).

Hope to see you all there…. Keep the Pointy End Up!

The temps will be in the upper 60’s and winds about 10-15mph. It is a good idea to cut out the spill holes in your parachutes.
