We're off to a wet start...

Right now the weather forecast for this weekend is not in our favor. Saturday looks to be rainy or drizzly all day, and Sunday the day starts with showers and then continues with 15mph winds. Lovely! What doesn't get us with rain & cloud deck gets us with everybody going off the field toward Mr. Simpson (oh, didn't I mention that the winds were from the Southwest? Sorry about that).

So current thinking is to scrub this weekend and hope for a clear day next weekend (8th or 9th, we'll pick the day that looks better) where we can at least get some flying in, then to have our usual 2-day launch on the 15th & 16th. 

We hate to start the season this way but weather is what weather does. Remember that the 8th & 9th is also Camden, SC's launch window, maybe their weather outlook will be better.
