We could do the floater race even if we have an in person gpsl. As Stan pointed out, do we need weight or size classes? What if I go buy one of Ron's big balloons?

How about a race? I’ve yet to do a round the world floater and would like to. Each of us put out $$$ for attending GPSL (when we can get there) which could be spent on a floater project. Our virtual presentations could be floater project centric and the race broken down into unlimited class, party balloon class, etc with weighting favoring experiments / capabilities.

EBBE is short for Earth-Balloon-Balloon-Earth radio transmission link. A ground based amateur radio operator contacts a distant operator using two high altitude balloons with repeater radios to extend the range of radio contact. It allows for contact over the horizon, which normally is not possible for many radio frequencies.

I don't have a lot of help here, so I may want to
travel and launch with a group. That all depends of course how
the situation looks this summer.

everyone we have the virtual meeting online using one of
the many programs that do that sort of thing.
The when it comes to launch day we all launch from our
usual launch sites.
I'd still love do do our EBBE flight, but have yet to
find a willing partner group to try it.

should make GPSL 2020 a virtual set of presentations with
a coordinated launch on Saturday.
