Just got some cool news…
Jason Turicik and Dave Barber from LOC Precision are gonna be at our Michiana Rocketry Mayhem 2021 launch in April.
They will have a small table setup and maybe have some awesome stuff to show us.

Jeff Barney is accepting preorders and Jason & Dave will deliver what they can fit, so get those orders in ASAP!!!

So this event will be my first launch event other than with my home club (Michigan Team-1). I'm curious about the logistics on the field. Is there a separate parking area and we haul our gear to an area where we set up the tents and tables, or do we park along the line where we set up our work areas (and sorta work out of the trunk)? I'm wondering about how mobile I need to stay with my gear.

Parking is on the Launch Site, the road in parallels the creek. Pull your vehicle in and set up in front of or behind of your vechicle. See you there.

Thanks to this guy and his dog for finding my rocket and hanging on to it until I could get there 2.3 miles away. Winds at 15K were over 50 mph. The winds at 5K were 35 mph. Thanks to Sean for helping me get this flight racked and loaded. I have the full video of the flight. I just took some frame grabs for you to look at. This flight was on Saturday before the rain rolled in.
