October Launch Reminders

Hi All, 
Our October launch is coming up next Saturday, October 9th. As was previously communicated, this will be a single day event with our normal monthly launch setup, not a ROCTober style event. While it is a bit far out to predict the weather, it is likely to be cooler than previous months, so as always, dress for the weather and drink water. As always, show up early and fly early for the best conditions. 
This month, and going forward, the BOD will be experimenting with an optional survey to gauge launch attendance ahead of time. The form is here and hopefully self explanatory:  https://forms.gle/SQj2Sib5G9fBgc2e7 . We’ll be spending a good amount of time looking at data trends before starting to use it-and it’ll only be used to help us set rough expectations for resource needs. To reiterate, this is entirely optional, and if your plans change or you forget, that’s 100% okay and expected. 
Looking forward, we will have our first November ROCStock in 2 years next month! This will be a 3 day event from November 12th-November 14th focused on high power flying.
