If I may suggest, we move the relay on pad 4 to pad 9 and set up the new rail there. 5 & 8 get backed up regularly as do 6 & 7. 9 is an 1/8" rod which also gets backed up but we have many more 1/8" rods to work with.

Sounds reasonable to me.

Materials cost for the new Jaw Stand pad came to $165. I have received $80 with at least another $55 pledged. Anything received over $165 I will apply to the Bill Spadafora Memorial Fund. Thanks to everyone who has contributed.

Any chance that in Acton, the rail launches become A and B and not take up rod positions?

For those that were not on the Team meeting Tuesday,  it looks like we will be able to set up as I suggested in the last post, in Acton, anyways.  The rail pads will be A and B and they will NOT be sharing a "location" with any rods.  They will most likely be far enough away from the rod pads so that no one will have to move away from any rod pad as a rail pad goes off.    So the two 1/4" rod pads will be by themselves and the two 10/10 rail pads will be by themselves.  This should go a long way in preventing the backups that were happening at the last launch.  Thank you to the "Powers that Be" for all the work and planning!
