There was no launch this last weekend due to the athletic field not being
available to us at the Cannon school. We have to schedule around their
activities and Charles did not call and say it was available. So no launch that weekend.
I was out at Williams farm last night with Terry Baucom and Kip was in the field Harvesting Corn, Yeah!
He was finishing up for the day, he had been on that tractor for 6 hours and
he was whooped. He said we needed to check with Mr. Williams about the
status of the field however I think we will be good for the Oct 16th, 17th launch at the farm. One other important note is that the fields on the other side of Hopewell Church Rd. have already been harvested. I will call Mr. Williams next Thursday or Friday to see where the progress stands and if we can plan on launching on our regular weekend. Lets pray for dry weather for the next week or two.
I know several of you were planning on attending the Orangeburg Freedom
Launch last month at and due to it's cancellation has really messed everybody up. So in speaking with others there is a lot of interest to go back for their October launch which will be sponsored in October by ROSCO their NAR section.
This means they may run the launch for a shorter launch window, I will
call Bobby Weatherford and see what their plans are for the Oct 9th and 10th launch. I don't know what kind of vendors they will have if any, I'll try to
find that out as well.
The Discovery Channel rocketry specials are running again. Not sure if
there are any other dates scheduled however I understand they are re-running those Rocket specials they did last fall. Just FYI
