Anyone going? I'll be there both days, although not sure how long due to the heat. I've got a new mobius camera that I'm itching to try out!

Planning on attending on Sunday. Have to do some dropping off, picking up, and hopefully burning a bit of WThunder and Vmax. Hope to see you there!

Saturday = yes in the AM, leaving noon~ish for other obligations. Sunday = Yes full day. Have a newly built Wildman Demon 54 , a Chute-Release, and too many un-burnt motors. :cool:

Then I'll see you there tomorrow, Tim. I have a little rocket bit for you. I'll try to remember to bring it along.

It's been dry at the orchard. A mile or so straight north of the launch area. Low clouds and getting lower and darker.

The day started with broken sun and a ton of humidity. Low wind.

I was there until 3pm. It was HOT AND HUMID! Clouds were rolling in, but no rain before I left.

Pretty good amount- more than I would have thought due to the heat. Carl flew his 6" Eagle Claw on an M motor- very nice flight. Several L1 flights. I flew my 2.6" darkstar on a I140 skid- video here:

Those Estes E motors should be pulled from the market. But our leaders will say make sure you file a MESS report. All the E motors do is make a MESS out of our rockets.

Weather was nicer today- with a bit of wind, it was tolerable. Good flights, other than Charles's CATO, which was kind of cool to watch, in a "glad that didn't happen to me" way.
