Mission Control - (Alias) "The Launch Site Shed"

Postby Tarpazium » Thu Aug 23, 2007 10:03 pm

Hi WA,

Just checking how the newly erected launch site shed is going.

I did see some details of it on Paul Collier's ARF Forum before it closed down and to me it seemed like a really good idea. I can imagine it would also help reduce some of that stress on the morning of any launch in relation to getting things "to and from".

I also believe that in Qld and elsewhere other similar structures should be considered.

Can I just ask a few questions that I'm sure others will also wish to know.

- What launch items you are storing in it ?

- What items are you NOT ?

- Did you put him on a concrete pad or a strip footing ?

- Was it size big enough ?

- What is the ventilation like?

- Is security an issue?

- If you had to do it over again would you change anything ?

Looking forward to hearing your answers.

P.S.

Can someone please post a photo of "Toodyay Control"

the shed were to start , me and tantaris put it up with my dad one of the clubs members donated the shed to the club which was great .

the shed about 3metres x 3.5meters and is just the right size

it sits on the dirt which is fine no slabes it is held down using four star pickes bashed into the ground on each couner then they were bolted to the shed so it won t blow away

it holds nothing of real value what is in there you could buy from bunnings cheaper than driving there that said the farmer keeps an eye on it and it is locked members can store there stuff in it if they wish the club safety gear is in there first aid kit ,hammers and stuff etc

many members are already storeing there stuff in it which is great

and it has made things easier and is a great plus for PARC

Very good idea guys.
We should possibly approach Michael to see if we can put one on the farm. Our kit is beginning to defy all attempts at remembering it all on the day (for me anyway).

You guys should paint 'PARC' on it

Your NOT Wrong Astro!

It's all about reducing "5.00am Pre-Launch Stress"

Everything else is a bonus.
