GO for Saturday August 13th Launch and Contest!

We are GO for our Saturday August 13th launch and contest! The fun kicks off at 9 am and runs as late as 4 pm. Our 5000 foot FAA waiver will be in effect.

A couple of advisories for tomorrow. We are expecting temperatures in the 90s and high humidity. Please be sure to pack some cool drinks to keep you hydrated throughout the day. If you have any portable shade, that might be good to bring along too. Also, there is an increasing risk of thunderstorms as we move into the afternoon hours. If you can, please plan your flights for the earlier portion of the day. We’ll pause through any showers which pop up, but a heavy drenching storm in the afternoon could cause us to wrap up early.
