I wanted to start a thread for people to post that they will be coming to the launch. We also will be putting out information via this thread and Facebook. This year the days are September 2, 3, and 4. All days will be EX

Sparky Motors:
We anticipate being able to fly sparky motors all three days. All sparky motors will be flown from the high power launch site that is set up over dirt so as to limit the chance of fire.

Vendors:
At this time we anticipate Ken from Performance Hobbies will be attending all three days.

Food Vender:
More info to come.

Hotel information:
A large Nascar race is the same weekend so we anticipate room rates to be higher than normal. We are looking into hotels in the Sumter area that might be a more reasonable rate. More information to come.

Events:
There is a local individual that has special access to the launches in Cape Canaveral that would like to give a slideshow of his photography. We’ll be setting up a evening and time for this presentation once we know more about the local hotels and where everyone will be staying.

I thought we were doing research all the time now. To do otherwise is pointless in my opinion.

Jim, last year the decision was this is a joint launch between the clubs. The majority of the members who have voiced an opinion preferred to do it this way.

I just booked my room at the EconoLodge in Lugoff for the August event and Freedom Launch, and the rates were the same as I always pay there. They didn't jack up the prices. $59.00 a night + tax. 2 nights was $134.06 and 3 nights was $201.09
