Additional information about Addieville launch

There are two important things I neglected to include in the previous post - apologies for the second email blast.

  • Setup time is 10:00 am - please arrive around then if you can help with setup, and / or plan to stay around to help pack things up.
  • If you are planning to fly a high-power rocket, please include information with your RSVP about what you're flying (size, weight, motor, expected altitude, whether it's a certification flight). That helps us be prepared to accommodate you; in particular, we need to know whether you need an FAA waiver window (above 8500') and whether you need a larger than typical launch pad.

Thanks,
Dan
