One of my favorite launch sites! I should have multiple J and K flights ready. Sky is great for star and satellite watching if clear at night. 4500 ft elevation makes for cool nights and warm days, great camping!

Rob,

Do you know what vendors are attending?

With Monday the 29th being a day off for most people, do you expect flying will continue into Sunday afternoon/evening?

Historically no vendors have come to DeLamar. I spoke with Bill @ Balsa Machine who is our local vendor, if we could have him out there to support the club and flyers. As we get a little closer I can give him a headcount, then we will know if BM will be available out there.

or if you are going, call or email Balsa Machine, let them know you are going, and would like to have an on-site vendor, especially a motor vendor.

We start flying earlier in the AM, and through out the day, we work around the W's schedule.
Sunday historically we are done around 11am.

Thanks for the heads up about Balsa Machining, Rob. I'll buy at least 3 motors if they show up. I'll give them a call.

Thanks Bryan, i believe this DeLamar will be bigger than last with more flyers needing an on-site motor vendor. I know I'm good for at least 3 J-K motors....and more through the weekend.

Just a heads up for where we are out there....there is a lava rock island on the west side of the bed. That's where we all set up.

Porta potties if you want to come out for the day or camp.

Quick update. No motor vendor support. Sucks we all wanted to buy motors too.
