...and again. Plus Sport Rocketry Cover

Everyone brace yourselves... Plaster City was once again blown out!  I arrived at 9:30 on Saturday morning to find gusts at 20MPH.  Two brave flyers still flew L motors and it turned out that this was a surface wind topping out at about 500'.  I was still marginally disgusted with the conditions and bailed before noon.  I admit that I'm a fair weather sort of flyer.
     On a happier note I also learned that one of my photos of Mike Worthen's J500G liftoff made the cover of NAR's Sport Rocketry magazine:
Thanks to Larry Brand for linking me up with them.  They're sending me a copy as one can only get the magazine as part of a NAR membership.  Since NAR used to ban 'rebels' for flying G motors back in the early 80s I've elected to remain solely a Tripoli member.  I'm stoked that I could help the magazine, however.
