Launch Report for Saturday, 05/20/2000
Saturday turned out to be a dreary day with cloudy skies and temps in the 50's. It had some nice highs though and a few lows. Eleven flyers turned out to launch 31 rockets.
On the high side, Rich Edward's made his Level 1 certification. He launched his Vigilante on a H-180-S for a perfect flight. Congratulations Rich.
Don Speller joined us as our newest club member. Please welcome Don when you see him at your next launch.
Pat Easter flew his PML Lil Lunar Express on an I-161-M for an incredible flight!
Chris Burke made the second L-1 flight of his life with his PML AMRRAM 3. Chris used an I-211-M for an unbelievable flight! The recovery took some time though as the rocket got hung up in the tree in the farmers front yard. Chris spliced together some old boards the farmer had and eventually got his prized rocket back in one piece with NO damage.
Barry Lynch had a busy day as usual. First his Big Daddy lawn darted on a E-15. Then his Fat Boy got lost in the field after an awsome flight on a G-80-10 with streamer recovery!! Barry has always provided some good entertainment at our launches.
On the low side, George Christ and his son Herby, came out to make their last flights as Sky Busters. George has gotten an offer he can't refuse in Washington State. He leaves this week. George's last flight was his Barracuda on a F-20-7 for a picture perfect flight and recovery.
We will miss George and his family very much.
Please join me in wishing them the best of luck in their new home.
