Mike,

It looks like the launch will be at Gumbert's Field but it is still not certain....waiting on the beans I believe! Should know in a week or so.

I am guessing that Gumberts field is bigger than MIS?
I think I just may have to attend.

Jim,

The site is actually quite a bit bigger than MIS with a 9000 ft waiver. It is M capable. I believe it was planted as a bean field, with some corn in places. If corn was indeed planted, it won't be completely harvested by the October launch. So bring a beeper if you have one. If you need directions they are on the website (www.jmrconline.org). Let m eknow if you have any questions or want any pictures of the site.

Thanks for the welcome...I lurk a lot and post a little!!! (BG).

Thanks for all of the positive feedback on the 9-11 launch. It was much appreciated (as were your pictures)!

Also...thanks for stickin up for my Daughter Emily over in the coffee house last week....I get tired of defending her "Snitch Habit" ;-)

I would say to look me up at the October launch...but...alas...I am unable to make it the launch. But hope to see you guys in November

Thanks

Yeah,

I will be sure to update you. Roger spoke with the farmer (John Gumbert) this week about the field. The feeling is that the beans are drying out nicely and if there is no rain, they will be able to harvest them prio to the launch. HOWEVER...it is not yet definite that we will be there. Roger will check back with John next week and I will let you know the outcome as soon as plane are finalized. If I were a betting man, I would bet on the farm (note: NOT bet the farm) ;-)

In the past, John has worked the field around our schedule!

Just an FYI...The Jackson launch WILL be this Saturday rain or shine. We have been extremely lucky over the past 3 years or so...we have found that there is seldom a day when we can't find a window of weather that will allow us to fly. We are known for "flying on will power" when the weather lets us down. We have flown through rain, snow, heat and bitter cold! Imagine a Ratt H70 in the snow, 9 degrees farenheit and a wind chill of 10 below....been there done that!

If by some some chance the launch is cancelled, it will be posted on the website. However, I believe that the set up crew will be at MIS on Saturday morning regardless of weather. If you have questions on Friday or on Saturday morning you can call either Roger Sadowski (517/262-0510) or Scott Miller (269/370-7929).

Alas I will not be available (or at the launch) as I will be travelling out of town :-(

Enjoy the launch...and let me know how it goes.....I will be thinking of you guys!

I'd love to check it out, but I've gotta work Saturday afternoon. I could probably go as long as I get out of there by noon, 12:30 at the latest. Are they gonna start at 10 sharp, or maybe a little earlier?

I'm sorry but it looks like I will miss the last launch of the regular season.

I have my father-in-laws funeral Saturday.

Unfortunately the launch will not start until 10:00 am sharp. That's when the FAA waiver opens. The pads are usually set up and waiting just before !0:00 am. It all depends on the number of fliers that are there to assist with the set up.
