As Equipment manager I want to thank those that showed up to help get all the ROC equipment in order for Rocstock coming up in two weeks. The heart an soul of the club are the members and flyers but the skeleton, blood, guts and nervous system is the equipment we have for launching our rockets. Without it working correctly we would all be standing around admiring the paint jobs on our projects but doing little flying. So for those that came out to help us clean and organize everything, I thank you and I am sure the club will thank you when we put on the November Rocstock with the great launch pads and control systems that we have.
So remember that when you pay your membership dues and flight fees, that money goes into keeping our equipment in top shape. It goes into the porta potties and trash bins that we all need out on the lake bed, and it goes toward the fees we have to pay to use the lake bed. And since we are all unpaid volunteers in this club, the more everyone pitches in to help with setup and tear down and doing a couple hours at the LCO/RSO/Pad manager tables, the more we will all feel like we are in the club together.
