We are GO for our 4/21 launch. The fun kicks off at 9 am and runs as late as 4 pm.
The farm has requested a little help tomorrow. Joe needs a few hands to help with a few short tasks around the greenhouses. If you can spare a small part of your day it would be greatly appreciated. They’ll be plenty of time to also get a good deal of flying in. Its important to help our hosts at the farm, so any time you can spare to give back a bit would be much appreciated! Thanks!
Recent storms have left the field covered in a thick blanket of snow resulting in conditions unsuitable for a launch tomorrow March 10th. This time of year a lot can improve in a weeks time, so we’ll monitor conditions and tentatively reschedule for Saturday March 17th. We’ll post an update as the week progresses and a final GO/NO-GO next Friday.
We are aware that the TARC calendar is running out, so we will be reaching out to our regular TARC teams to make backup plans with you just in case weather further delays our regular launch schedule. We want to be sure you have opportunities to practice and qualify. If you have any questions reach out to us via the info@ club email address.
We are GO for our Saturday February 10, 2018 launch! Please read the following important notes for tomorrow if you plan to attend:
Since the field still has some snow and ice, and there will be a bit of a melt tomorrow, there will be no parking on the field. Please park along the road in a manner where you don’t block any farm vehicles which might need to get by.
As we did last month, we’ll be moving the pads in a bit to keep the trek out to them from the road manageable.
Temperatures are forecast to warm into the mid 40s tomorrow, so there will be a bit of melting. Please plan your footwear accordingly, also keeping in mind that things good be a bit slippery if you need to go for a long recovery.
We don’t know how high the ceiling will ultimately be tomorrow. Since there will be clouds, and we may even start off with fog, please keep your flight plans flexible.
Since it is winter and there is a rain threat increasing as we move later into the afternoon, we could wrap up a bit earlier than the usual 4 pm. If you have something to fly, arriving no later than midday would be smart. The launch will kick off at the usual 9 am.
We are only willing to be out flying in the winter if we can do so safely. We appreciate your continued cooperation in keeping things so.
One last note. If you are coming out to attempt a high power certification tomorrow, please remember to bring your NAR High Power Certification application form and a current NAR membership card. Without these we won’t be able to help you.
Weather for tomorrow is a light south to southwest breeze and mostly cloudy skies. Temperatures starting in the mid 30s at 9 am and peaking into the mid 40s. It should be a nice day for some mid winter flying. We hope to see you there!
