Happy May Day! Huge THANKS to Jack Matthews for towing both ways and for range set up with the help of Scott Dukes, David Pinter and everyone else that assisted. We were OK to proceed as planned with the scheduled Saturday May 1st and Sunday May 2nd launch event, at the North site, subject to the normal precautions. Basic COVID hygiene protocols were still in effect: If you had a fever or if you felt sick, don’t show up; keep at least 6′ or more between your prep area and the next person.
An orientation briefing for participants was held and included a discussion of safety and emergency procedures, fire conditions and instruction, applicable rules and regulations, and what is expected of participants with respect to the use of NFS lands under our special use permit. Waiver was from 9 AM to 6 PM but we were pretty much done by 5 when weather started to threaten.
