NOGO for Launch this Saturday, September 24, 2022 #nogo

While the forecast calls for fairly nice weather, the prevailing winds from the south forces us to scrub the launch.  South winds are unfavorable at Harmon because:

1. Model rockets tend to weathercock into the wind, which can put them across the street over the houses.  If the recovery system completely fails, they can (and have) landed near a house after following a ballistic trajectory.

2. A south wind tends to blow our rockets into the woods.

The launch is scrubbed.  Next date is Saturday, October 8.  See you then.
