Hey,

This might be the wrong place to ask, but will there be any launches at Westmar this year or next?

Cheers
Bryan

Thinking of coming out to Westmar with my 12yo - I have nothing to launch that needs the Westmar ceiling, more coming as a lookie-lu (and maybe putting up an MD up on a G80...)

Trying to get a feel for how many people might be heading out there before I commit to a whole weekend of driving..

Are people able to give a rough show of hands if they're planning on going out to put something up to help me make the decision?

I plan on being there, with family. I have a couple of launches planned, but will probably also do a bunch of smaller ones as well so everyone has a go. It's usually more relaxed than a normal launch and you'll get to see a whole bunch more of how people do rocketry etc. G80 in a MD sounds good to me, do recommend you come.

Ditto to Matt, even I usually try to fly a few biggens ;-)

Shock horror right lol. You may have seen a recent announcement, there are some BIG rockets happening the background and need to test certain components somewhere ;-)
