    We are go for launch this Saturday and Sunday. The NOTAMs have been called in and the weather looks acceptable. Saturday's high looks like 53 with a bit of wind (8 mph with gusts to 13 mph). Sunday's high will be around 49 with winds at 6 mph with gusts up to 9 mph. Let's hope the weather reports are correct that the rain won't move in until Sunday night.

    It was a great weekend Launching rockets. We did not get many launched due to the frigid conditions on the field. Those that LAUNCH had recovery challenges caused by upper wins. Thanks to those that attended and helped set up.

    There will be two - 3-day launches this year. Freedom launch is being moved to Memorial Day weekend. We will have another 3-day launch in September with a name yet to be chosen. In fact, the person who comes up with the best name wins a free chute protector.

    Due to inclement weather & field being soggy launch this weekend is cancelled.
    See you in May AND don't forget Freedom launch will be over Memorial Day weekend so we will have 2 launches that month.
    Regular May 4-5 and Freedom so pencil those in your calendar!

    Shouldn't the date for Labor Day weekend be August 31, September 1-2 — ICBM Research?
    Since it's no longer called Freedom Launch lets give it a new name since it's a special 3 day event.

    Leo,
    You are correct about the Labor Day launch dates. They should be August 31, September 1,2. I thought I had corrected it everywhere that I had posted it but apparently not.

    We have discussed giving the launch a new name but we haven't come up with anything satisfactory yet. Any suggestions of what we could name it?

    Having thought long and hard about this, may I suggest we do same as MDRA.

    Their major event is called "Red Glare" they do both a spring & fall event called same. They just call it Red Glare and post the event dates.

    Just call ours Freedom Launch I & Freedom launch II or spring & fall. Or just Freedom Launch and post both dates. Flyers will pick up on the event being 2x a year quickly.

    Midwest Power has 2 events spring and fall. Their spring event is called Mini midwest power and fall Midwest power.

    Food for thought.

    I agree with Jim. Makes sense. As an after thought, we can start numbering them, Memorial day was Freedom launch 1, Labor Day can be 2.Anyone asks why the reset easy to explain. Unless records show when we started Freedom Launches.

    Started in 1997 after LDRS XV. Originally over the 4th of July, moved to Labor day weekend when the 4th of July came up on Wednesday and no 3 day launch available in July. 1 launch annually until this year. No Freedom launch in 2015 after losing the Orangeburg field.

    Ken Allen of Performance Hobbies WILL be at the July 6-7 launch but not the July 20-21 launch. If you need anything for the July 20-21 launch, plan ahead and let Ken know as soon as possible. He can either try to deliver it to you at the 6-7 launch or leave it with Chuck and I if you are not going to be at the 6-7 launch.

    Ken will be at the August 10-11 and Labor Day weekend Freedom Launch August 31, September 1-2.
