I'm no good on the 12th or any time after 16th for that matter
But wed 10th works for me if it suits others
the venue doesn't have to be the Max if its too far for the majority

Yeah, it'd be about as aerodynamic as a block of flats or a house brick. :)

If you can put a bowling ball up - there's no reason you can put a brick up
I would love to see a T2 scaley -- anyone got some decent drawings?

You don't even have to use PVA to glue the paper to the balsa - just get the adhesive backed mailing label paper and attach it directly to the balsa. Cut it flush with the edges and then use the CA to seal it.

... What do you think?? ... Sounds like we need to check it out... Sundays may be less problematic from the sporting perspective, than Saturdays - I guess we could drop in and ask them for a fixture ? Tim (Edit) I have just looked on Google maps - looks a good space - maybe a bit bigger then wetlan...

Re: Nov 9th Launch Day

... As an alternative to the wetlands, we may try flying at the police paddocs a little futher along Stud Road (away from Dandenong). Keep your eyes on the forum and you'll hear about that. ... Hey Krusty what's the deal with the police paddocks - are you currently negotiating? Is it a larger area ...

Nice videos Troy - I like the audio (comments) that come out following a launch - always entertaining.
Was Launch 2 my Nike Smoke?

It was great that you came along, also good to see Barry and the boys

look forward to the next event

Troy
if you jump off the Monash Freeway at Stud Road and head towards Dandenong, you will see a sports complex on the left about 200 m from the freeway. On the far side are the Dandenong wetlands -- we will be in the middle away from trees / lakes etc

Tom - come along - you'll have fun - we all have plenty of small rockets that are well suited to the space -- its informal -- but if we let Andrew become RSO who knows ..... :D Btw, I got my card the other day - it has L1 emblazoned upon it :D :D :D :D :D Now is time to plan for L2 8) 8) 8)
