RED GLARE; April 8th - 10th
« on: December 04, 2015, 12:35:59 PM »
Hi Everyone,

MDRA has announced the dates for Red Glare this coming April. I was wondering if any of you would like to make the trip out there and enjoy what is sure to be another great Launch. I would like to go myself but being on SSD means I only have so much I can afford. But if there are a couple of you who would be willing to share driving time, gas and room expenses, then I could go. You would have to pay for your MDRA membership and range fees as well as your own food, but it's well worth going on the trip.

Usually I like to head out on Thursday morning so I can set up a canopy on the field that evening and be ready to fly first thing on Friday morning.

So how about it, anyone interested in attending Red Glare this spring?

Hi Dutch. That sounds like fun. Let me check my schedule and see if it works. We had fun in the past going as a group using 1 or 2 vehicles and staying at the same hotel. I will get back to you. Thanks Larry 8)

Hey Guys,

Patty and I plan to make the trip down for Red Glare also. Please keep us informed as to where the group will be staying. It would be nice if we can grab a few spots next to each other at the field also. Looking forward to flying.

This is the kind of stuff I would love to do, but with 3 little kids and work, I consider myself lucky to make it to monthly launches!

This looks interesting. I might go, but I'd be coming from Pittsburgh so a shared road trip isn't practical. Meeting up would be great though.
