Hi all, hope your winter is treating you ok and your build plans are on track!

This is another year where scheduling Rock Lake is an either/or option, and we're looking for your preferences before we commit to a date.

Option 1: June 26-28
Option 2: July 3-5.

July 1st is on the Wed. this year, so neither weekend claims a rightful "long weekend." We have favored the June dates over the last years and I know that some families would be able to attend with school out of the way if we did July. The drawback is more time for the grass to dry out, and some people are off on summer holidays already.

If you are a regular or occasional Rock Lake attendee, please let us know via this poll:

Please note, I should be the only one who will see your signup. If it matters to you, simply reply to me via a PM instead.

Cheers,

Would love to attend, unfortunately I am already committed to the FAI CanAm event the end of June, the North Coast Cup at the end of July and NARAM the first of August. Returning to fly in Alberta is on my bucket list but not in 2020. Please keep me posted.

Well, the date chosen was June 26-28, starting to look less likely with current restrictions on number of people... hopefully they budge a bit on that for outdoors events...

Fingers crossed for a high power launch at some point this year 🤞

Rock Lake 22 is still scheduled at this moment. It will be held under the Covid rules established by the Alberta government. Currently that means no more than 50 people at one event. We are determining the best way to allow as many registered fliers as possible, and will be updating the website with the pre-registration details in about two weeks. If the outdoor gathering rules change in the meantime, we will allow as many as we can. Stay tuned!

Well folks, I had a chat with the fire marshal today and they've had a recent 3.5" of rain (more than many past years). The grass is nice and green right now and he feels confident that we'll be ok this year. A lot can dry out in a month with no rain, but here's hoping for some more showers to keep things happy until Rock Lake.

If you're watching the website you'll notice it's slowly being built. I'm looking into a registration system using the website and trying to determine if I have the time and ability to get it to work in a reasonable amount of time. If not, we'll use an alternate method.

Pre-registration details will be announced....www.lethbridgerocketry.com
