Black Friday Launch
« on: November 11, 2015, 07:10:55 AM »
We will be hosting our November Launch in Potter, NY on 11/27-28/2015. That is the Friday and Saturday right after Thanksgiving. We will be flying under Tripoli Research rules with our usual 18K Waiver. The Range Hours will be from 9:00AM till 5:00PM, or dusk, which ever comes first.
Our Club President, Don Tennies, will be your Launch Director for the weekend.

Remember there is a 5 MPH Speed Limit on ALL the roads of the farm.
Those caught exceeding this limit WILL be asked to leave.

Ken Allen of Performance Hobbies; http://www.performancehobbies.com/ will be on site for the Friday only and he will be closing down early so he can can be on the road by 4:30 to his Charlotte, NC Launch on Saturday.

Ken also wants everyone to know about the Motor Sale he is having:

And the extended forcast is showing a high of 42 & 30% chance of AM showers on Black Friday.  Hopefully that'll improve (as it is sure to change) - but I'd still rather be there than anywhere near Eastview or the Henrietta Shopping Zone that day...

Now we're up to a high of 51, partly cloudy, only 20% chance of rain with 11mph winds.  If it stays that way, I can certainly live with that, but your mileage may vary...

looks like a few people are bringing out their Estes Mega Der Red Max. guess I'll bring mine along ;D. not sure what the wind will be like but I've got a few motor options in the G and H range. I just remembered I flew it at last years black friday launch on a G64.

My MDRM is still sealed in its bag :-[.  I'll have to bring my Mega Der V-3 instead. 

Looks like now they're guessing it'll be 59 degrees, 20% chance of precip, but mostly cloudy with 16 mph winds.  But as its almost a week away, you're guess is as good as mine...

Yes, Brandon and his friend Frankie went over and helped him right at the end of the day, they were heading back to the trailer 20 minutes later with Paul and the rocket.

I had a great time it was a good turn out and was nice seeing everyone before the weather changes. Its time to get those winter projects started.
