I have not discussed this with the officers or board.. but if the weather is bad.. we /could/ probably just bump it back a weekend.. the Pumpkin Farm runs last weekend in Sept thru Oct 31st. I know Susan Sink (the owner) would have us there every weekend in October if possible**..

**NOTE: I'm not proposing that.. but if Bob or other officers/board members want to run with multiple launches in October.. then coordinate here on the mail list and run with it.. I just can't commit with the recent death in my family and my mother in law living in an RV in my driveway ;)

I just had two upnthere so you guys could choose if you wanted, so I took off one of my rocket/motor combos. I have a motor that can fly in that rocket, it's just going to go a bit higher. I also plan on bringing a bunch of LP stuff to launch also. Maybe not as exciting, but I can fly a bunch of them if time allows.

As for both days, I will definitely be there on Saturday and Sunday. What will we do in if the weather is bad?

Hey Eric and Mike....

I'm sorry for the confusion on he "Free motor" idea.. but I kind of went off half cocked when I put the offer out there. I still don't have confirmation that the Sinkland Farm owner is going to reimburse us for the "free motors" offer yet.. so I'm fronting the money myself on behalf of the club.  However, even if our host doesn't honor this arrangement (as she has in the past), I'm willing to eat the the purchases for the club if doesn't pay us for them.. but would like to maximize the benefit this brings to the club and the event.

That being said.. I still want to do the free motor thing (so we can get a lot of cool stuff launched), but you each picked two motors..  when we have enough subsidized motors to fly one/hr on the first day.  If you all are both going to be there on both days.. I would be willing to get you each the second motors (or if not there the second day, but you want to pay for the 2nd motor each of you picked).. and that would be fine either way.

So my question:
Are each of you going to EITHER:
1) be there both days.. or
2) be willing to pay for your second motor?

If so.. that's fine and I'll order the second motor for each of you. If not, I would rather not. If not.. please edit the spreadsheet to reflect which single motor you want ordered. If so (condition 1 or 2 above).. then just reply "Both motors" and tell me if you're going to be there both days.. or pay for the second motor.

Does this adequately confuse things now? ;)

I obviously didn't think this through all the way.. :)

Please try to answer before CoB on Thursday so that I can get the order in by Friday.
