The earliest date for our Acton Winter Follies launch in 2020 is Saturday, 09 January. As we have been doing for a couple of years, the final call on launching that day will be made on the Wednesday before; keep an eye on the club website. We will still be following the COVID-19 protocalls set forth by the state. Check the Launch Status thread in our Forum for the latest maximum allowable headcount at our launches.Please fill out the tracing form and bring it with you.
If the weather looks too bad for that day, we have the flexibility to postpone the launch to the Sunday of that weekend or to a day on another weekend in January.
As always, Acton is a low- and mid-power field only; no high-power motors and no sparkies. Set-up will be scheduled for 9:45 AM. We'll likely use a smaller number of pads set up on sawhorses as the ground will be even harder to pound our usual stakes into. There won't be any launch fee but we may use launch cards if the conditons allow.
This is typically a short duration launch shutting down in the early afternoon so hot dogs will not be available. If COVID-19 conditions allow, there will be the usual debriefing at an area restaurant after we pack up the trailer; you are welcome to attend.
