Note: To get a good start on this we will be setting up on Friday April 20th starting around 3 pm EST so if you can come and help out this will be much appreciated. If the launch is a GO, I am planning to meet at the field Friday April 20th around 3 pm with trailer to start getting our field set up.
We are scheduled on having the launch unless something drastic happens to the weather, in case of bad weather the Rain date would be the following weekend, so always check the website before you plan to make the trip down. Due to a lot of people traveling and the logistics needed for the event we will post if the MIDWESTBLAST3 launch planned is a GO or NO-GO by April 18th the Wednesday before launch.
We can always use volunteers to help in setting up, breaking down, and work the LCO and RSO positions for this launch, Remember we all need to help share the responsibility of running the club.
So, let’s all come on out and have a great time.
Regards, John Olevich Prefect/President Michiana Rocketry
