    Went out to grab the paper this morning (yeah, I'm old school and still read a physical newspaper) and noticed it was a bit chilly. Stay warm at the launch today my friends!

    Heavy rain yesterday but a sunny forecast is in the works through Saturday. Maybe we get to fly?

    Looks like Saturday is a go, although mud boots might be in order. It will be a game day decision for us.

    Yikes! If it's that muddy I'll be parking by the gate and hoofing it in like the locals. See what I did there?

    Perhaps we should Mooooo've on here. Weather should be good for the up parts. Recovery down range could be, uh, challenging.

    How'd the launch go yesterday? Weather was nice although my allergies disagree.

    A pretty exceptional day, especially considering it could have been a wash-out. The “highs” were really high... the UTA AreoMavs flew their Spaceport America project over mile up with an L. The “lows” were ... that’s Pokerjones’ story to tell.
    Over 200 flights.

    No, not the thumper award, it was the big splash award. Hit the dead center of the damn pond with the upper stage on my BBX/Terrier.

    I went back out to Gunter today hoping it was still afloat and with a well placed 300' cast using a #8 treble hook recovered it mostly unharmed. Altimeter in the ebay looks to be fried (still drying) but the tele-gps in the NC seems to be working fine. Motor case, chutes and rocket as whole are in good shape.

    Poker, you and that pond seem to have a thing. Good to hear most everything survived. What was the final word on your Phoenix from last years splash?
