Default WOOSH launch @ Bong Rec. area - 02/11/12

This coming Saturday looks to be a cold one, hopefully the wind will at least cooperate. Range will be on the minimal side, with rail, 1/4", 3/16", and 1/8" rods set up. Any special needs will need to brought by the flyer. We will get set up around nine, range opens at ten. Barring any unforseen mechanical issues, Tim will be there. Bundle up and come on out!

I hope to be there at nine to help, but I am not sure how long I can stay.

No worries, set up and tear down will be quick with the small range.

Even though it was cold, real cold, the thrill of the launch was enough to block out the cold. Did I mention it was cold. Thanks to Chad and Roy and the rest of the Woosh Guys for giving me the do's and don'ts of reloads. Thanks to the Wildman for bringing all my goodies and all of the epoxy tips. Very special thanks to my truck heater for helping me thaw out. Was I the only one who noticed it was cold ?

You know it's cold when you have to pour Everclear into your beer to keep the beer from freezing! After a couple of those, you don't need a designated driver--you need a designated carrier!
