Yesterday, Feb. 27, dawned bright and Sunny as we met at the Temple Rocket Barn to pull some maintenance on launch support equipment and plan for the upcoming Spring Session of launches before the crops go in.  It was breezy and cool but it is February so I guess we need to expect that.  We would work some outside and then move inside for some refreshments and to stand next to the heater.

There was probably more talking than working but we had a great time and it was good to see everyone after a long not too cold two months and things look good for the future.

After hooking up the recently purchased wireless units for the away pads for our Wilson FX launch system we were all so impressed that we just decided to take up a collection and purchase the other three units we needed to go completely wireless.  This will give us much more versatility and range with the system, will eliminate all of the pad to pad extension cords, and make set up and tear down much easier.  The new units should be here by the March 12 launch.  Come on out and celebrate with us!!
