Would love to go (have a 20k+ flight planned) but won't be able to make it this time unfortunately....

Have to hit it hard this weekend at Jimboomba instead....

Email received. I checked the weather this morning and it’s looking a little marginal, let’s hope it clears up a bit.

Unfortunately mother nature has other plans this weekend, with 70mm+ of rain expected. Subsequently the launch has to be postponed. The new date is still to be confirmed so please wait out whilst this is organised.

You see - we just need a floating pontoon launch tower - as the rain falls and the land floods, you’ll get an altitude boost...
