This time I will test all the birds I'm bringing for motor and rod fit the night before. And I'll preload my engines with igniters, and my birds with wadding and engine spacers if necessary.

And I will NOT leave my 3 tube cluster airframe Sandman frying on the car hood; it came out with a 10 degree curve due to uneven heating on the fillet between the tubes. Luckily it straightened itself out over a week of sitting upright in the basement.

Less prep! More WHOOSH! The Lamp WILL fly this time.

That's awesome that the local media would take interest. Make sure and wear a clean TRF shirt and represent!

Have fun all!

Well, crud. With the temp expected in the 80's it'll be difficult to wear my Barnum & Bailey's crew jump suit.

Reckon my rock band outfit might be a bit much? I could leave off the yellow fishnet hose.....
