April 27th & 28th launch update

Hello fellow rocketeers, it looks like we might actually be able to launch this weekend! The rain has mostly passed and it seems like the winds will be from the west moving down the runway toward the road on Saturday. 

Sunday's wind forecast is a bit more problematic, it's supposed to both gain in strength and shift more to the north east which puts recovery into the very tall barley and our favorite neighbor. 

That said, if you're thinking about flying this weekend I'd make it Saturday as we may have to call Sunday because of winds. 

Ken will be with us, as well as a group of about 8 or so kids from a school launch with Brad Shea. Last time they came out they had a blast (pun intended!)

Since we had some rain on Friday I'd like to start the set-up at 10 am and aim range open at 11. That'll give the morning sun and breeze time to dry us out a bit before we all decend on the field. 

See ya there!    dr
