Geoff Howard has his record breaking Mercury Redstone project nearing completion. The successful Q-Motor test was completed at ESL 236 and can be seen here. This project is expected to launch sometime during the weekend of April 7-8, 2018. This will be a restricted launch due to safety and field logistics. Please read the following very important notes:

      • MDRA is in control of this launch
      • MDRA controls the air space, there will be NO drones on unmanned flying objects during this launch
      • Everyone attends at their own risk
      • There will be no parking on ANY field
      • There will be no vehicle access down the driveway with the exception of those supporting the launch
      • Those that choose to park along the road do so at their own risk
      • There is no scheduled day or time of the launch (all timelines are approximate)
      • The launch will occur when expected recovery area is clear, when it is safe, and when weather permits
      • The launch can be scrubbed without notice
      • Safe distances must be maintained at all times
      • The launch will be broadcasted locally on 88.9 FM including various launch statuses
      • Launch status will also be provided by twitter

Road Kill Cafe will be open at the beginning of the driveway during the launch and serving Tommy’s fine delicacies
