    Yeah, I am suspect'in after 15 years it should've graduated to a National Event by now. Sent my renewal in for QCRS since I couldn't make it this year and
    best kudos to Gary for firing the card back so quickly. Hoping to make MMWP and next year. Kurt

    No rain date; MWP is this weekend, rain or shine. Which is to say we will be flying rockets if the weather is nice or getting drunk at Tim's if it isn't :cheers:

    Sounds like a fair plan if you ask me. There was a delay one year when the crops weren't out of the field but that was announced well in advance. Kurt

    Change of plans. Puppy is no longer coming. Neither is wife. Her cousin's mom passed away yesterday, so she's staying in St. Louis to go to the Saturday funeral. Doesn't really know the woman too well, but she wanted to be there for her cousin. Now I'll need a pad assist or a drinking buddy if the weather is bad. :p

    FOR MWP15 -
    Sabrina plans on getting the "1" on her Tripoli "M" cert - and her NAR JR L1, with this rocket. It's supposed to look like a Galaxy or the Universe. She will be applying some holographic tape to the fin area.

    She's having some trouble coming up with a good name. The rocket is an Estes Leviathan XL (Leviathan with an extra section of body tube). She wants to use Galaxy, Universe, Holographic, (or Holo) and maybe Unicorn in the name.

    All Naming suggestions will be given appropriate consideration. :rolleyes:

    Side note...
    If we have a no-fly day due to weather... I'd love to play some chess. If I brought a board, would anyone play? Or should I plan on sleeping for 18 hours (and that's not a bad thing).

    Chess, D&D? How about instead a bit of target practice behind Tim's garage?

    It is beautiful, Sabrina. I suggest...

    NEBULA - Named after the Latin word for “cloud”, nebulae are not only massive clouds of dust, hydrogen and helium gas, and plasma; they are also often “stellar nurseries” – i.e. the place where stars are born.

    and as an extra, two for the price of one, meaning - From Guardians of the Galaxy, Nebula is a Luphomoid assassin, an adopted daughter of the intergalactic warlord, Thanos and as well the adopted sister of Gamora.

    I'm arriving late Friday, so no flying then. I'll be flying all day Saturday if the weather cooperates.

    MWP 15 weather inquiries.

    The weather Friday is nominal, and it will be flyable.
    The local weather forecast this morning was a 20% chance of rain on Saturday and a 10% chance of rain on Sunday.

    Plan for parking on the street.

    We'll see you all there.

    I'm guessing only one side of the road.....
    East or west?

    MWP is on the west side of the road, so I'm assuming parking on the east side.

    Wunderground is showing 10% risk of precip on Friday and 80% Saturday and Sunday in Princeton. Prepare for on road parking like stated and I hear Tim likes Jagermeister if you run out of saucers to fly.
    I hope the weatherman was using windowpane when doing the prediction and is wrong. Kurt
