    I think my 5" goblin will make it's debut. I'll loft it on a J450 or J401...

    I'm planning on attending both days with my family and hopefully getting certified again after a 20 year absence. I assume Wildman will have a good selection of motors and reloads available...? Last time I flew high power Ross at Magnum Rockets was still the place to get motors (late 90's).

    Welcome back to rocketry. I also to purchased from Ross. I would guess WM has a better selection than Magnum had. It would be a good idea to call Tim just to make sure he brings what you need. His store on wheels is large but there is no way he can bring all of what he sells.

    Say Glen, if you haven’t picked up some of the Scarlett Rosey Cider for Roberta, you should stop in - it’s going fast.

    Yes. We have air conditioning.
    From the Bong entrance, turn left. Go about 2 miles. Turn right on County B. (The pads are straight to your left at this point). Go up half a mile, we’re on the left.
    If you are Glen, with waders, just go straight north from the pads, cross the swamp. Hike up B.

    Hi
    Did you get the 5" goblin in the air? I think I have all the parts here but the fins for a 6" goblin.

    No. I pulled the Eggfinder at the last minute due to a broken battery lead. Trusted to the Mylar streamer which has served me in the past. Not this time.

    Based on the last sighting, and where the booster landed, I think it went into the big water.

    Penultimate sighting.

    No, Gary, I didn't. It was a little too gusty for the motor I had loaded up (K456DM). Maybe at ECOF.
    Charles, sorry to hear about the upper stage lost while swimming.
