    Well, I bought the darn year sticker, so I might as well use it... Maybe the Chaos will get a shake down flight... :eyeroll:

    Well, the Chaos isn't technically new since the last launch... I've been working on it a little while... :eyeroll:
    I do, however have the LOC Goblin almost fully assembled. :) That, I got at the last launch. :horse:

    No, not that far along on the Goblin... However the fin unit is completely built, just waiting to be glued into the BT now. Then paint, because I don't Monocoat...

    If the weather is decent I will there. Finishing up a dual deploy Madcow 38 Special. Likely just on a G as a shake down. Not sure what else.

    I'll be there for a bit - probably around noon. Will do a fairly low altitude shot with 4" punisher - last time it popped the chute at apogee and don't want to walk that far again....

    Great launch today- despite the cold. I found a rocket that I lost 8 months ago!

    Also made a trip to visit Mr. Charles across the street at the winery and came home with 2 bottles in my trunk. Opted to go for the Pear wine and my usual (Siskin scrumpy)

    Lost- ejected out in the field, or somewhere in the parking lot?

    There's a very large launch there in 2 weeks (April 21-22).. It'll probably turn up then. Whether or not it gets to the right people, I don't know, but i'll try to look for it.
