UPDATE - LATE START for launch March 16th & 17th

OK, we've had some discussions with Kip and, because of the late Friday rain, we think it would be good to hold off on the start time for tomorrow, with setup not starting before NOON.

I'll set the NOTAM to run a bit late as well, so we'll still have a good day, but please hold off on starting to arrive until 12. Sunday looks perfect, so normal times will apply for that, 10 AM start and we'll finish up by 6.

So I don't wanna' jinx it, but as of mid afternoon on Friday we're looking good for the weekend at last. As I look out of the building through our live Sky-Cam on the roof of the CMGC in downtown Charlotte it's looking awfully cloudy still, but the rain guage has received just a trace of rain in the last 4 days so we may be in luck for our first 2-day launch! Unless it lets loose later today we should be OK. 

I will not be available on Saturday (I have to work that day) but Roy and Doug have said they will be in attendence. Anyone else that knows the set-up routine and wants to report to the field to help set up that'd be great. I'm going to set the waiver to open at 10 AM and close it at 6 PM. Set-up I figure should be 9:30 or so, but you can check the FaceBook feed as well for any updates. 

Thanks all, remember to be kind to the runway and don't do anything to make the guys in the CLT tower call my cel phone!

See ya Sunday...  Doc R.
