    So 8', 10', 15'?

    Something long enough to handle the large L3s? Mine is 12' tall. A 12' to 15' rail would be ok. Not so comfortable with 8' 1515 rails. That's more the 1010 lengths I see (6-8').

    Are there any MWP flight cards for download so we can fill the out ahead of time?

    The rails that we have are 8 feet long. This is what we have, and it has always worked for any of the flights we've had. We do have the away cell launch trailer, that does have longer rails and unit strut. As far as downloading flight cards. No play cards are only handed out to register flyers and downloading them is not an option.

    My TRA "M" cert has allowed me to assist at the away cell a couple of times @MWP.

    The launch trailer that I have seen had a pretty long rail on it.

    Here's a picture to give you an idea. Sorry - I don't know the 'specs' on the rail...

    Rail length? "Pretty darn long..." That was a good day, me and, my young Jedi Manny and, my newest Rocketbuddy (who at 12 years old...glued up the N 10,000 we burned shortly after those pictures were taken.)

    Registered and booked hotel room.
    Planned flights:
    My 4" Drago needs to launch; Chess-Themed, it's been sitting since early January waiting for a chance to fly. Not sure with what motor...
    3" DarkoStar going on an AT L1090W
    Mac Performance Blackfly will go up on something (maiden flight, finally)... Likely the CTI H225 Blue that I've had sitting around since forever.
    Then maybe some small-ish stuff. I've got a bunch of 29/40-120 loads sitting around. Maybe this is the year I burn those up, with short flights and quick turnaround, I'll bet I can burn em all! LOL
    No drag races for me this year... Broke as a joke. Booo...
    I'll be free to help prep/load/recover if anyone wants. Looking forward to spending time landing a hand to friends up and down the flight line this year since I spent all of last year on the buttons. If you and I aren't friends yet and you need help... Guess what?! We're friends now, so just let me know what you need.

    Can you pick up my speedo from the drycleaners? Make sure they got all the spots out from that "goat incident".

    I'll be flying my L3 - wildman 6" v2 on an AT M1780T

    Maybe 4" punisher on an L1100 Not So Wimpy EX motor.

    2.6" Darkstar on 5 grain 54 white trash EX motor.

    Thinking about the 2 stager, but with the L3 flight I might take it easy.

    Also, the turkey rocket needs to fly again.

    I like that name "White Trash" for a propellant. I remember a fella named a mix baby "poop" with a different expletive for poop 'cause that's what the grains looked like. When tested on a cell, blew the nozzle and trashed the load cell. Kurt

    Not my name- I found it with that name online. Apparently also known as "wicked white". Pretty simple white, and I had great success with a 3 grain 54 motor at a Tripoli Wisconsin launch last month.
