No launch on Sunday April 28th

I do appologize, I should have posted this when I got back from the field, we will NOT be flying on Sunday the 28th due to the winds being predicted to be 10 - 15 mph for most of the afternoon and straight into the waist-high oat field. We lost at least on and almost several more to it yesterday and we shouldn't be wandering around in that to find lost rockets. 

I did want to extend a gracious thanks to 2 folks who made contributions to NAR and ROCC yesterday. 

Eirc Mitchell from Lenoir NC came by and delivered to both ROCC and NAR a huge treasuretrove of rockets, parts & LP engines that will be going to the repair box, members and out to the NAR nationals for their auction and the fly it - take it ptogram. Eric has been out of the hobby for about 12 years and is getting ready to move and wanted the massive stash to go to good homes.

Later in the day Peter Alvin stopped by with a large bag of kit parts and partially constructed rockets that will find their way to the raffel next season. 

Thanks to you both for your generous contributions. 

Doc R.
