Normally we have a monthly launch report but with Covid really hampering all of our activities we will most likely have a summery at years end! Hopefully 2021 will return us all to normal and we can host NARAM-62 with an * at the end….
As Promised the 2020 Launch Summary Thanks to Mike Pleban for compiling the data.
Covid really put a hampering on activities, we had to cancel NYPOWER, with all the work of planning and prepping for NARAM62 that had to be cancelled/postponed as well. Many Thanks to “Team Jurus”, for without their help we may not even been able to have a flying season! Along with being the Treasurer Janice Jurus pulled double duty with registration and counting the number of people in attendance (we couldn’t have more than 50), Troy spent many hours at the LCO table and Dennis was as always the setup and teardown director.
