    Lance, you know I couldn't pass up the best job in rocketry, despite having to take crap from BB.

    BTW, can do RSO while I'm out there also if needed.

    Noted. Glynn can't make it this year so we'll figure out a plan and dual duty will help.

    We got you a bigger shade canopy for out at away RSO. Should help with respite when needed.

    Thanks again. ;)

    We should have you covered. However, if your rocket has unusually large fins that won’t fit into our tower we might not be in a position to help you out. Your safest bet is if you need a specialized piece of launch equipment bring it with you and we can find a spot on our range to accommodate you.

    Lance, a Port-a-John at the away cell would be nice too. It's been absent the past few years.

    Quick reminder ...

    There's just over two weeks until the deadline(31-Jul-2018) for high altitude submissions for AIRFest 24. Since it's too hot where you live to do much else [​IMG] please take the time to plan, sim, complete the form, and send to to us. Check out the AIRFest 24 'Flyer Info" page for full details: http://kloudbusters.org/airfest/flyerinfo.aspx

    We are now at the beginning of the seven week countdown. We’re at 97 ‘PAID’ registered flyers so far today so let’s see if we can reach 100 paid flyers by the end of today. Also I suggest that you pre-order your tee shirt(s) so you at least get one. Attendance is looking good for a really big weekend this year.
    Next year... well that will probably be at least double the fun for everyone.

    Should we register for high altitude permission if we are aiming for 20k? Close but not over 23,000? My Blackhawk 54 isn’t fully simmed or built yet. I doubt it will make 23k.

    Oh yeah, I can register today for myself and 3 young flyers. (8, 11, 12)

    I flew a Blackhawk 54 on an L935 to 23,230 ft., so it is possible. What could it hurt to register, it doesn't cost anything.
    I'm bringing a few rockets, but nothing that would go over 20k ft. I'm gonna save the O3400 for LDRS next year. It could get close, Thrustcurve says my Ultimate DS will do 22,000 ft. This year it's flying on an N2220 Dark Matter to around 12,000 ft. Sharon and I both plan to fly several EX loads, so expect to see "Not Your Wimpy Red" again.

    Still need volunteers, lots of spots open, in fact it will be slow flying, as so far we only have RSO's for one shift mid day Friday, and 2 shifts late day Saturday, so might be hard to fly, if we can't get your rockets RSO'd.
