Wow, sounds like you have the same luck with weather as we do! 3, possibly going on 4, monthly launches in a row rained out for us....crossing our fingers for this Sat. Thinking of changing my sig to "If it wasn't for bad luck, I'd have no luck at all!"

p.s. really nice poster for your club, like it a lot!

There are two bean fields that still have not been harvested, unfortunately these are the fields we fly from. Barring perfectly dry weather the next couple of days we are scrubbing the launch for the 20th. Check back Friday for a final update. There is an outside chance for a launch on November 27th.

It dont look good:(

There is no chance that we will be able to hold a launch at Elsberry this weekend (December 4th.). Part of the soy bean crop is still in the field at Elsberry. The latest update is that because of the rain that fell on the fields on Tuesday, November 30th, the farm workers would not be able to work the fields until this coming weekend (at the very earliest).

The forecast is for rain on Monday, December 6th. The only way we will be able to hold the regularly scheduled Elsberry launch on December 11th. is if we don't get any significant amount of rain between now and December 11th. Our only hope is that the rain that is forecast for Dec. 6th. is light and that weather pattern that we have right now stays more or less the same between now and December 11th.

Not to hijack your thread Bowhunter, but it looks like our launch on Saturday is gonna happen. Hope to see you and anyone else there.

Launch News UPDATE


It appears the launch, scheduled for December 11 is a go. There are still some crops in the field but the feeling is with careful launch rod positioning the launch will occur. As always check before you leave for updates
