Hi Everyone, Gene here with an Aeronaut update. As most of you know setup is Thursday and the launch is Friday - Sunday. Weather wise Thursday for setup looks pretty pretty breezy, but Friday and Saturday look amazing with low winds. Also Sunday morning is looking good. For temps are in the lower to mid 90's. I don't know about smoke, we'll need to see. Right now the AQI number is 61 so I believe that is relatively good, someone correct me. A higher number is worse for air quality?
For volunteers we have some folks signed up for setup and tear down. But we need signups for LCO / RSO duty. Also more critical no one is signed up to help with the equipment trailer. Anyone with an open hitch heading our Thursday can help, even if you can't tow the Aeropac trailer. I can tow it and you can tow my little utility trailer. very light weight.
For Sunday I have a hard leave time by noon. My kids Phil and Jan are showing up Sunday (after being separated for 15 months) and my wife Paula is having her 60th B-Day Monday. Anyway I need to get home earlier to help out with stuff. For loadout we'll need some serious help with loadout and trailer help. Again if you have a hitch let me know and we'll see how we can make it work.
I'm going to try and get out there Thursday by 3:30PM to 4PM see all of you then!
