Just got this update from Rocket Rick:

Greetings

I just received word that the R/C club has been notified by the FAA that they are suspended from flying activities at Dyer park this weekend as a result of President Obama’s trip to South Florida. Presumably that means we will be grounded as well. I will probably get an official notice Friday but for now this month’s launch is CANCELLED.
