Any questions about the launch in the morning folks?

Bob, some of the NRVR members and I should be there at about 9am to start 
setting up. We should be ready for first launches at around 10am. Launch 
details and map here:

Remember, if you want to fly a rocket at our night launch, we have to see it 
fly during the day (safely) first. okay? Here's the full night-launch guide:

Also.. this is a one-day (and night) launch. We WILL NOT be there on Sunday 
this time.

THe next launch after this weekend will be the last weekend in October out at 
Sinkland. Details here:
