Adrien.. Any help is appreciated.. I just heard the 36 student teams are actually around 200 college students.. and we're going to be short handed and need a lot of help.. all over the place. ;)
BTW.. if anyone has extra tables.. please bring a few to setup a student rocket checking line.. Just like we did for kids tech when we had 200+ flyers
Wow.. I estimate we'll need:
* two RSO tables,
* two "rocket triage / repair" tables (with lots of CA/fixer spray)
* two low power pad managers
* couple of pad helpers
These are all flying on Estes BP motors? If that's the case, you or Pat might want to swing by Hobby Lobby and buy up all their spare $1 ea Estes igniters.. They have like a 25% failure rate.. and you'll be in the red on igniter supplies 30 minutes after launches begin.

Big project at work (forklifting our data center from Roanoke to a colo in DC) is coming down to crunch time; move date is 10-19, so I haven't had time to get anything interesting done.
Probably won't have time to be there Sunday, as much as I'd like to, but I will definitely be there Saturday. Still not able to do HP RSO or LD, but more than happy to take a shift at LCO (HP or LP) and/or LP RSO.
Tangentially, I would like to take my L2 test on Saturday, if we can arrange that.
See you all then

As you all know, this month's launch is a larger, two day launch this upcoming Sat & Sunday: [ http://nrvr.org/calendar/ ]( http://nrvr.org/calendar/ )
What are you flying?
(anything > 6kft, certification or complex flights please email rso(at)[ nrvr.org ]( http://nrvr.org ) )
Who can volunteer to help run the launch?
On this last point...
No one has stepped up yet as Launch Director (we need one for both Sat & Sunday).. and we'll also need coverage for:
* High power RSOs
* Low power RSOs ( we have a large VT student team flying gliders)
* 3-4 LCO slots (as we split HP and LP flight-ops)
* Setup and Breakdown for Sat & Sun
