Just an update here - tent stakes should be done today. I’ll work on flight cards tomorrow, and will send out a copy of what I’ve got tomorrow eve or Monday, for review before printing. I should be able to meet on Wed, wherever.

The launch is just a week away!!

The final Summer Launch planning "follow up dinner" is slated to be this next Wed night at 6:30pm.  You all want to do Amelias again.. or mix it up a bit?
If folks from the previous meeting would provide updates on their to-dos.. that would be great. If you can't make it.. just send us officers (or the board) and update so we can see if there's anything we need to help out with.
I think Bob, Bill and I said we could each make it this next Wed.  Anyone one else?
Have a dinner venue suggestion (with space for like 8-10 of us)?

Hey all..
So Bob and I have been knocking out a few of our to-do items to prepare for our "Big Fine Summer Launch".  I have finally paid the taxes, title and registration done on the trailer (custom plates on their way!), Bob is getting a final trailer logo quote for us, we're printing various things for the launch between us, ironing out the parking and field layout.. etc, but there's still 1-2 dozen other things that need doing that we could use a hand with for anyone who's available to assist. Things like helping us (and Adrien) prioritize our spend priorities (trailer graphics vs hats vs  shirts, bumper stickers, etc).. working with local fire department, printing HP and LP flyer cards, printing flyer lanyards, some RSO documentation and volunteer signups, someone to run registration & "store", oversee HP flight line parking, vendor parking/needs, etc.
We had mentioned having a couple of planning meetings to facilitate folks wanting to help out.. so this is it. It's go time.  
We're looking at probably two dinner planning meetings.  One this week, and one more the week of the launch.   These planning meeting usually work best as a dinner meeting (members only, but wives are not excluded if that's better for you).
For the FIRST Planning Meeting (this week), here's the nights I can be there (T, W, Th, Fri nights)..
This Week - https://doodle.com/poll/zfembusx7vwihqvb 
Please pick all nights that COULD work for you, and only exclude those which are a hard no. (there's a maybe, or "only if" option too).
For the SECOND Planning Meeting (week of the launch), I think we're looking at Mon-Thur, since that Friday is the motor mixing workshop (on the to-dos):
Week of BFSL -  https://doodle.com/poll/bsqv8dk8b95k976k 
If interested, willing and able.. please sign up ASAP so we can tie up all these loose ends. 
Once you sign up, we'll send you the full list of the to-dos and you can pick out whatever you think you can best assist with.
Thanks all!
