Self-Nominations are Now Open for the 2016 ROC Board of Directors Election

ROC Board Elections are coming up rapidly. Five seats are up for election this year. Three are the full three year term, and two are shorter terms as the current board members are filling previous vacancies. In the event of a vacancy, or lack of nominees, the board appoints members to fill the seat until the next election. The individual elected to that seat serves the remainder of that term.
The window for self-nominations is now open, and will run until September 1.
If you want to help with the month to month operation of ROC, consider nominating yourself for the board.
To submit a self-nomination, send a statement of why you would be an asset to the club if you serve as a director. Please include a recent photo of yourself.

Send them to:
bigbearrockets@cox.net

Weather Guestimate for August Launch: Warm, Calm, Chance of Smoke

The high temperature on Saturday, August 13 should be 97°F, with calm conditions early.

Humidity will be low, and the UV index high, so plan on staying hydrated and use plenty of sunblock!

Currently (Monday) there is a fire South o Hesperia that is causing smokey conditions through most of the area, and we will continue to monitor as thing develop.

We hope to see everyone at the lakebed!

Prepare for the Lakebed Weather

Wednesday day should see a high temperature over 100°F. Then it should “cool down” to about 90°F highs on the weekend. The humidity will probably range from high single digits to about 20%. Protection from the Sun and hydration will be very important!
