Friends of NC Rocketry:
I sent this schedule out about 6 weeks ago, and I heard no negative feedback, so go ahead and enter this into your schedules.
The first 3 or 4 dates should be regarded as very tentative, due to the CoViD-19 pandemic. IIRC the prefect/secretary elections are coming up in January, so the final decisions about whether to hold the launches will be in someone else’s hands. So, this may be my last message to you as Prefect.
Let’s all remain patient and stay the course. Take care of your selves, your family, and your friends. I know that the lack of social contact is producing a certain level of mental and emotional strain. Even I, known by my friends and family as “the Hermit of Highway 54”, am feeling a strong desire to hang out with my kith and kin, shake some hands and hug some necks. Just keep in mind the video clips of hundreds of vials of Coronavirus vaccines rolling off the production line every second, and remember that this is going on around the clock in multiple factories. Help is on the way. In the meantime, we owe it to each other to Wash Your Hands, Wear Face Coverings, and Maintain Your Distance.
I sincerely hope to see ALL OF YOU at a launch next year, alive and healthy.
Alan Whitmore, Prefect
April 10-11 (?)
