    It is a misfire alley design, with every one providing their own pads. That being said, it is not that difficult to borrow the use of a pad to launch. I will have my setup there and you are welcome to use it. Up to K on the rail and 1/4" to 3/8" rods to swap out if needed. Whats Up Hobbies will be attending for supplies. The more the merrier and do not forget the night launch! Our camp will be the one with all the night launch rockets on the tarp.

    There will be several of us there that share their equipment. I set up a triple stand with 1/8", 3/16" and 1/4" rod at 30 ft., and a 1010 rail at 100". These can all be changed out easily. You are welcome to use my stuff too.

    I may be getting older, but I refuse to grow up.

    And I thought my 1.5 hour drive was bad.

    Jack is a pretty reliable guy, and usually shows up on Friday. After his nap, he will open up in the afternoon for us hardcore rocketeers. I will be setting up camp and dragging the club trailer out there around noon.
    It will be warm Saturday, we call anything under 100* warm and they predict 95* for the high. Here is a link to the Goodyear weather, that's where I live and pretty close to the launch area:

    They are predicting rain today, but that usually only happens on the East side, might bump up the humidity up to 25% though....

    I wad told Jack will be there.

    I'm short on vehicle space this time with the addition of two new flyers. As a result, I'm not bringing any of my launch equipment, even low power. Don't worry about not having yours.

    Wayne, I'll be setting up Fri morning and coming back to town for a wedding that evening. Can you keep an eye on the tents if the wind kicks up until Rick gets there? They'll be on the east side where you were set up last time out. Thanks,Brotha

    I will be out there around 11 am until probably 4 pm on Friday, be glad to keep and eye on your stuff while I'm there. I also have another event I have to attend Friday night. If you need anything, you know I will probably have it. I carry extra tent stakes and chord, and if you want me to bring anything else, let me know.....
