Andy has still not been able to reach Dave Davis but will continue to try. Eight members expressed a desire to go to the launch. Tim Pace got in touch with the landowner. Tim also will give notice to the airport that we will be flying 24 hrs before the launch. Kent said that he would call and remind Tim to call.
