Far more importantly, how many donuts should I bring?

But we are curious also… this isn’t going to be a regular monthly launch and we
are a little apprehensive about getting trampled in the stampede to the launch
pads. Are *we* going to be able to set up the range the night before or early
Saturday morning? Sun rises before 6:30am, it’s light by 6:00am to begin
laying out the range. Will we be able to begin flying by 7:00am? Are we
going to have the usual monthly launch setup (single bank) or maybe anticipate
the higher demand and set up two or even three banks of pads? Will range
check-in, waiver signings, other administrative stuff be ready to go early.
WHAT JOBS DO YOU NEED VOLUNTEERS FOR? How can we help it all go?
I know, we sound pretty impatient but it’s been THAT long. We just want to
know what time to show up to help out and get the show on the road.
