Hello to all of our Flyers!

A few days ago, Saturday’s weather looked very good but as South Florida goes, the weather has changed once again.

We are now looking at a high chance of Thunderstorms and High Temps that will feel like it over 100 Degrees with the UV Index at 11. 

A decision was made to CANCEL the August Launch and look forward to the next Launch on September 9th, 2017.

Stay dry and see you all next month.

If you have any questions, you can contact us at info@narbars.org

Hello Everyone,

We don’t normally ask but both Nick and I will be unable to be at the Launch Site tomorrow Morning.

Nick got called into work at the last minute and one of my dogs  came down with some issues today and has to be at the Vet at 8:00 AM sharp.

Anyone who is available to help Scott setup for tomorrow’s Launch please be at the Vista View Park  Launch Field at 8:00 AM. 

We would also appreciate any help during the Launch tomorrow as Scott will be at the Launch Controller and we need some of our experienced flyers to be out in the field helping out at the Pads as Range Safety Officers.

Please email me at info@narbars.org if you can help.

All of your help is extremely appreciated.

Thanks, 

Marc Schlesinger
