M&MinM4M launch report bob_day 2

May 12, 2008

Thanks to all who showed up for Mothers Day. We upped our 2008 membership by 2.
Me and Marty plus Ray, Lou, and Joe pretty much describes today’s launch. Gregory Ashworth took off before I arrived so he could take his time getting back over the pass (He’s from Colville but attending school in Seattle). 3 flights for Lou, 2 each for Me, Marty, & Joe. Ray just watched while Marty put up (and lost) his ‘E-rung’ Mosquito. After searching an hour or more in the wrong direction, Joe found it in the other direction. Marty then climbed up to the F-rung recovering in the far NE corner of the field. Emmerson (our landowner) took pity and drove Marty and Chico (a tail wagging companion) back to camp. Lou was undaunted by the cold cloudy windy conditions and flew a nice pair of I’s (Dual deploy via I-284 and motor eject in a 4” bird via I-211) along with tagging the C-rung of his alphabet ladder. While I acknowledge Joe Cooney was there, I have some suspicions. This Joe only had 1 rocket and 2 motors. Definitely not the Joe I No ;-) I flew my 18mm bird twice. First on a C6-7 w/ streamer only recovery, then on a B6-4 for a successful parachute/streamer combination. Everyone stuck around for tear down which may be a first for us. Good company always takes the sting out of crummy weather. Next up FITS! Presibobdent
