Need Helpers:
Can we get some commits on a 9am setup.. LCO/RSO and breakdown?
Bob's going to busy most of the day with student cert and large dangerous flights.. so we're on our own for club RSO and launch-ops.  So if Adrien or I want a change to fly anything.. we'll need some help doing LCO/RSO shifts.
Give us a shout here if you can lend a hand.
I would like to discuss creating a draft for a "Radio Spectrum Reservation" board of some type, so we don't have people trampling eachother, or interfering with our launchcontrol system (for example).  I just want to start to iron out how we want to split up & notate launch spectrum usage, in a way for everyone to see.. This is so when people show up.. they see our RF board, and can register their EggTimer switches, ISM bands, ham bands, wifi bands, etc with their frequency/band, device, time-of-day, and contact #. Something like that. I'll put a call out to TRA for best practice examples.. see what we can dig up or come up with.

So far, the weather looks great for this Saturday.. 
General high pressure moving in.. no precipitation, 5-10mph winds and Blue Skies!
We also have an just been given an update to VT's outdoor personal protection protocols, based on the CDCs new, more relaxed protocol for outdoor events:
Face coverings:  Given the reduced prevalence of COVID-19 in our campus community along with the science that increasingly indicates that outdoor transmission is rare, [ in accordance with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention ]( https://nam04.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Ft.send.vt.edu%2Fr%2F%3Fid%3Dh2a9c618%252C367a06a%252C367a110%26utm_source%3Dcmpgn_news%26utm_medium%3Demail%26utm_campaign%3DvtUnirelNewsEmployeeStudentCMP_042821-sands-messages%26s%3DNJDEz0cduV9sDrG6pysQ7YDhka0bkvcaLE0zn-6gwGg&data=04%7C01%7Ct.weeks%40vt.edu%7C7740460a2f9c416cb93d08d90a4e11dd%7C6095688410ad40fa863d4f32c1e3a37a%7C0%7C0%7C637552152696600024%7CUnknown%7CTWFpbGZsb3d8eyJWIjoiMC4wLjAwMDAiLCJQIjoiV2luMzIiLCJBTiI6Ik1haWwiLCJXVCI6Mn0%3D%7C1000&sdata=IBSKsLmB4V11M0dum6Fl3u2JfUX0yQcImWwiu2N9E3k%3D&reserved=0 ) and the Virginia Department of Health guidance, we are now relaxing the face-covering requirement outdoors on campus unless you cannot distance yourself 6 feet from others who are not in your pod. Face coverings are still required indoors on campus and outdoors in downtown Blacksburg where distancing on sidewalks is difficult.
So it's recommended you have a mask with you for close one-on-one settings.. but it's not required to be worn 100% of the time.  Use common sense. :)
As always..  If you have a flight that requires a 1515/unistrut rail.. please let us know (thanks to you all who already have!).. Also.. [ any students, first time flyers, out of towners, or anyone flying any complex//research/high risk flights ]( https://tinyurl.com/nrvr-rso-policies ), please fill out and submit a [  pre-flight data capture form to get pre-flight ]( http://server2.nrvr.org/files/NRVR_Pre-Flight_Data_Capture_Form_2020.pdf ) approval BEFORE launch day.
Thanks all,
NRVR President
