ALAMOGORDO, New Mexico USA - With just over a month remaining until NSL 2010 (Memorial Day Weekend, May 29-31), we are in the home stretch of preparations for a busy weekend of rocket launching. The launch range and parking area have been cleared of the woody brush that has been trying to reclaim the site in recent years and the parking area has been measured and marked. We are in the process of erecting a new semi-permanent shade structure for rocket prep to compliment the permanent shade structures that are already in place. We are giving the launch control system a thorough check including fresh solder on all wire connections, and we are in the process of acquiring some fresh batteries to replace our aging ones. When May 29 rolls around, we will be ready for you; question is, where will you be?
