Launch June 20th 4 months 2 weeks ago #2881

If you were at the launch on May 30th you know it was a great day to launch and everyone had a great time. We checked with the AMA and we can have another launch on Saturday June 20th. Our friends from Ohio, WSR, will be coming over to help out. My question to the Club Officers is can we use our equipment so that WSR won't have to haul theirs from Ohio. I have set up and torn down our equipment several times and will be there to do so on the 20th. If someone who has experience in the controller could be there I'd be happy to receive a crash course on the controller. As for the virus on the 30th most wore mask and followed the social distancing . I felt safer there than going shopping here in Indy.

Just to further clarify WSR will bring their Wireless Launch System. We would only need to use the launch pads and rails.

As before, I can be a helper to setup for June 20. And depending on wife's plans, I may be able to help tear down. Yes, WSR runs a great launch and their wireless equipment is great!
I have a 2 wheel drive Ford Edge and a 2" ball hitch if that will work on our trailer. So if it does, I should be able to pull the trailer over to the site. Have not run the old ROCI launch controller, so not as much help here.

Thanks Allen, it was great to see you and everyone else on the 30th. I agree with you that we should have name tags on our mask's so we know who we are. Darrell said WSR will be bringing their wireless system so all we will need is a couple of low power pads, and some mid and high power pads. I'm trying to go thru the proper channels to use our equipment. If anyone has a phone # or e-mail address of the people in charge, you could send it to me at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. I would give them a call just in case they have not send this thread. I do know that Mario is looking after his wife, I just don't know if there is another person to contact about using our equipment.

Hopefully i can make it to the launch on the 20th. Last launch, i learned i would have to go in to work Friday afternoon, but hopefully it won't happen again. Bob, i will email you the combination to the lock on the trailer, in case i get to go to work again. While i am not a club officer, I figure that club members can use club equipment. The battery is questionable, but if WSR is bringing their launch controller, hopefully they have the battery to go with it.
