Hi Lister,
Awesome. I didn't think of looking at these. Will ring Blake next week and discuss with him.

Thanks

Quick question.
What food facilities are at launch site? (bbq?)

Where is the nearest place we can buy food from, e.g. sandwiches or other things?

Just trying to figure out logistics.

Thanks

There's normally not anything available onsite except rocket supplies. Food will need to be obtained from Jimboomba.

Start here: http://thunda.com.au/rocketry-information/accommodation/

About 15 minutes north of Westmar lookout for a rocket sign on the right hand side of the road... The property is called Enarra... Once on the property there should be directions to the launch site which is another 15 or so minutes drive from the main gate...

I'll try and find a pic of the entrance and gps co-ordinates to post here...

I usually stay at the Royal Hotel Meandarra which is close to a 1 hour drive from the launch site but serves large steaks...

Glad you like them ;-) please note, there won't be all of the signs mentioned in that info, so if you're able to, it is always good to convoy and/or try and get there when there is daylight. The property is massive, so you just need to follow the sign to the igloo
