Jopson Launch report
May 11, 2009Great launch! Arrived Fri evening to Ray and Krys camped S of the flight line. Parked the Den and had a nice evening with Ray supplied pizza. Spring (planting) moon rose to the Southeast looking HUGE.
Awoke Sat am with perfect flight conditions, no wind, no clouds. Robo called 6:30 with arrival info from his Ski gathering at Priest Lake. 7:30 am - Set up the flight line ropes and moved the Den and Ray's Upgrade to define the flight line. Beautiful day for a launch!! Flew my PML Phobos on an Aerotech H97 4 gr 29mm. Recovered in the trees NW of launch. Robo saw a coyote pup during recovery and we located the den. Cool! Enjoyed evening meal supplied by Ann Yanacek lasagna, with all the trimmings including, veggies and dip by Jim & Robo, wine from Terry, antipastos by Marty with help from Chico. Lasagna dinner was accompanied by salad from Katie & Lou, garlic bread from Ray and Krys and a wonderful pasta salad from ??? (sorry!). Bob Y. built a roaring fire to ward off the chill. Dessert by Robo & Jim was Oreo cookies, blackberries, strawberries, vanilla and chocolate ice cream. Option was to make the ingredients in to a milk shake which was done by 6 folks, the limit of the milkshake cups. Fire was enjoyed by all with bed not too long after sunset. Had to leave Sun am because of prior commitments. Great Launch! Thanks to Launch Directors Sat, Ray Stoner, Sun, Joe Cooney. Jim Jopson
