Hi Team. This weekend looks really nice. The corn is all down so we are back to a lunar landscape. I plan on camping at country charm Friday and Saturday night. I guess there's others staying lots planned. The weather is looking really warm and the night temps are more like summer. Should be some great skies.

I'll be making an appearance with my wife and two sons!

Bringing my classic Dynacom Scorpion to fly on a 76-3G L1050 Plainer Jane to around 8,500'. Should be nice!

Larry - I have some bits and pieces for the Bad Attitude you got from me. I'll throw them in the car.

Hey Dan, just finished reworking the rocket parts I got from you. Will be flying it on a 75mm 5 grain Aqua flame approx. a M1450.
 
The Squirrel should be around. Not sure if for both days. He's not camping but plans on traveling. If we need him I am sure he will stop out.
Hay Dan thanks for the parts did you get moved into the new weasel pit?

The fall is my favorite time of year. Anyone heard from my fine feathered friend and otherwise associate One Bad Hawk. Is Ted and Sandy going to be out, a camp fire wouldn't be the same with out them. Oh Ya

I plan on attending with my son. I am hoping to finally get last winters project launched, a RW Double Shot two stage on a J to I Blue configuration. Should be good for 7k or so. I will be flying trackers in both parts but could always use some help keeping an eye on things.

You got me in trouble by telling Mari that removing the wall is not that hard to make way for a new kitchen.
You need to be here and start scraping the glue off the floor. :gavel:

I need to stay home this weekend, Chris had his shoulder surgery on Tuesday.
He will probably still be hurting.

Looks like the weather is going to be perfect, have a great time.

Just hitting the road now. Patty and I are meeting the Toronto Rocket crew tomorrow to help set up the tower for there Hybrid "N" flight to 17,000'. That's one you don't want to miss!! The weather is going to be absolutely perfect. Looking forward to the Saturday night campfire at the "Lucky Charm" (Country Charm Campgrounds).

I had hoped to run up for at least one day, but that doesn't look possible now. :sigh::sad::cry:

Have a good weekend everyone!
 
17 K I like it. We have you covered!!! Mike C your on top of it big time. Looks like a great weekend of fun cant make this stuff up. Summer in September the rocket gods taken care of us. This weekend weather is a picture post card for rocketry if your planning on high this is the weekend for it. Mike pit bring a sleeping bag well make room brother. The camp fire will be burning all weekend.
 
REALLY wishing I had enough 76mm liner for the 6000 motor instead of the 3500 motor for my Scorpion. Either way, should be a good use of the conditions if they hold!

Looking forward to seeing everyone!

Apparently, according to my wife anyway, I snore like a freight train. Personally I think she is exaggerating as I only hear her. I am pretty sure that if I was in your trailer that Sandy would go postal on you and me.

I am just packing and should be on the road in a couple of hours. I am really looking forward to this weekend and I have some Loki loads to burn, including another L-1040 Red to 18K.

I just need to go to the bank to get some cash for Squirrel's pocket.

The kids and I are planning on going, but can only make the Sunday. Furiously building a GoDevil 38 for something new to fly - I haven't touched anything rocketry related in months.
 
Hi Team. I am sending this from the field. The weather is great clear skies. Lots of flights several University groups one group is putting a hybrid to over 17 k this afternoon if close stop by should go up at 4 pm. There's a 33 ft rail set up for this one cant wait to see it. We are having a camp fire at country charm tonight after a group dinner 6:30 the german rest in Canandaigua. We should be done and at the camp ground at 830ish. Anyone is welcome to join the group will be a fun filled night. BYOB

We have 18K all day and should tomorrow as well so if you want to fly high this is the perfect weekend.
 
Flew to 11,300' today and landed 0.41 miles from my car (0.34 miles from pad) in the field. Doesn't get much better than that!

Great day we now are at the fire , knob creek flowing. Dan P great fight that ex load was long and smooth. Tomorrow should be more Canadian and US school launches. The hybrid flight was interesting. Should have 18 k all day again. The weather is going to be as nice as today.
 
Just got home, what a great weekend and some awesome launches! Thank you to everyone involved.

As I was leaving Torrey Farm I spotted something on the way out.

Teddy, Mike and Larry, you recall our conversation on Saturday night...to quote Larry you can't make this stuff up. This beaver was probably over 3 feet long from nose to the end of it's tail, maybe longer. He/she was munching on the weeds all around it in the picture and it could not of cared that I was in my car about 10' away, it just kept munching.
 
Canadian beaver?

Great to see everyone again. Flying with you guys is always fun.
