Hi everyone,

Thanks to everyone who came last Sunday - we had a great time launching
model rockets at Delta park. We destroyed many a model rocket, but we
shockingly had some a few successful launches. Although many of us
brought our kids' model rockets, Ian brought his from *25* years ago --
including original motors and Estes catalogs -- and his all worked. He
even had a "splash down" in a local pond near the max station. :)

So, I just wanted to give you all a tentative schedule for this summer:

1. Although there are meetings every Wednesday evening in June and early
July in FAB 150 as usual, many of us will be off for vacation (like
Sarah, Jamey and me). So, meetings might be small and sporadic for the
next three weeks. I'd like to encourage the airframe team to go nuts
over the next three weeks since they're the most "critical path" to the
next launch. And I'd like to encourage software and avionics folks to
volunteer their time to help out the airframe team if they want to "get
their hands dirty" :)

2. We'll be back in full force in three weeks, on July 11th. At that
meeting, the avionics team will put its collective nose to the
grindstone to put together a "pyrotechnics" node for the recovery system
for the next launch.

3. We'll have a big team meeting to regroup, figure out where we are,
and draw up a launch schedule on Wednesday August 1st.

4. August 18th is our preliminary launch date in central Oregon. If we
miss that the next launch opportunity is September 28-30 in the Black
Rock Desert of Nevada.

That's it for now - have a great couple of weeks!
