I'm getting tested every month right now just to check.  My last test was negative.  Under the CDC guidelines there are two exemptions including medical and children 3 and under.

I figure it will be next year or later till the mask issue will be over.  Unless a vaccine can be made.  But that's unlikely since none of the COVID virus strains have a vaccine.

Since I can't be there I'll try and sell some stuff on Rocketry Forum.

Rules for CIA launches at Dodds Park
7/11/2020

These rules are based on guidelines from the Park District as well as our own
common sense. Since we haven't done this before we may need to adjust them
during the course of the launch as we see how well they work.

- If you don't feel well, stay home.

- Don't park in adjacent spaces.

- Set up your prep area at a reasonable distance from others.

- If you want to participate in the launch, a mask must be worn to cover both
your nose and mouth whenever you cannot maintain a safe distance from other
participants. No exceptions to masks. Effectively, this means that masks
must be worn when you are not at your own setup area or your car, or
recovering a rocket in the field far from other people.

- Everyone should bring their own hand sanitizer and use it regularly.
Especially after you have been in contact with the pads or wadding bucket
that others will also be using.

- Bring a scoop or cup or something to get wadding out of the bucket, rather
than using your hands.

- Take your trash out of the park with you when you leave. Bring a trash
bag you can use for your trash.

- We will have the pads spaced out in pods, with possibly 2 pads per pod.
Only one person at a pod at a time. The exception to this is that members
of a family can go to the pad together.

- One LCO or specific sanitizing between a couple of LCOs.

- No remote launch button (sorry kids).

- Do not hover or loiter at the LCO table, unless you are the LCO.

- Be willing to inform visitors and guests about these safeguards.
We all need to help keep everyone safe. We'll need everyone to do their
part, including letting new people know what they should do.

- We will be collecting contact information of all participants and
spectators. Check in with the LCO when you arrive. This is so that if
someone present happens to be infected their past contacts can be traced.

- For set up and tear down, only one person in the trailer at a time. That
person can unload/reload equipment and the rest of us can carry that
equipment to and from the field. When doing so we need to wear masks and
try to maintain spacing as best we can.

Are we following our usual time for set up at noon Saturday or can we consider starting earlier?

I dont think the temps will be much more than a couple of degrees cooler. And I think as of now there is rain potential about 6pm.

Personally, meeting at and starting set up at 10 am sounds good to me.

Re: Dodds acreage?

Ditto what Chris said, but in general, what you described is well within the range of things we routinely fly at Dodds.

 

Right now, they’re predicting a NNW wind at about 10 mph at launch time. That could change between now and Saturday, but if it holds, thst shouldn’t rule out the flights you’re proposing.

A lot depends on the wind speed and direction. We have launched rockets to 2000 ft or more that recovered in the park, and we’ve had rockets go much lower that left the park. A parachute release will greartly increase your chances of staying in the park, and we usually try to set up where we will have the most recovery area.

When the summer humidity hits it's hard too.  It bites to have issues like that.
Hopefully my new med's will help but I'm not expecting much.  An allergic reaction is different than just
having Asama but I'll see how it turns out.  I'm just starting on them today.

It would be nice to fly.  Long range predictions are 50% chance of rain but you know how that goes.

I've got about 5-6 rockets to sell and some items to give away.  I'll post them later.

Sorry about the rant on the medical issue.  Not a lot of people just know how bad allergies can be.

By the way I posted several of my last completed rockets on NAR facebook site.

Hopefully it will go.  As far as masks I can't wear one right now due to medical issues.  My doctor has got me on several new drugs to see if it helps in my breathing.  I have been tested once and will get tested every month.  Generally I'm in stage 2 or 3 right now in allergy attack.  Hyperventilation happens way to often.  Stage 4 is anaphlylaxis  which I've never had.  The CDC does allow for several exemptions including medical issues or kids 3 and under.  Hopefully my new med's will work and I can tolerate a mask.  I have two new inhalers and one pill to try.


If I can come providing we have a launch I have some stuff to give away and some to sell as well.

Now that Illinois has moved to Phase 4 of the reopening plan we have gotten the OK from the park district to hold launches at Dodds Park in Champaign. Our first scheduled launch will be on Saturday, July 11. We will plan on meeting there at noon to set up and hope to be flying by around 1 p.m.

We will be putting together a plan for how to hold the launch safely. Details will be forthcoming, but it will probably include not attending if you have a fever or don't feel well, setting up your stuff well separated from the rest of the participants, wearing a mask when not far away from everyone else and limiting the number of people who can be working at the pads at any given time. This will be our first time doing this and I'm sure there will be things that will have to be worked out. So I hope everyone will have patience as we figure out how to safely hold launches during this difficult time.

               beginning, sore and swollen throat starting.

 

Stage 3                 Stage 1& 2 plus:   Nasal blockage almost complete, sinus headaches bad,

                                                                                worse lung congestion, fluid on the lungs, hyper ventilate

                                                                                bad,  throat much worse.  Struggle to breath.

 

Stage 4                 Anaphylaxic


When the summer humidity hits it's hard too.  It bites to have issues like that.
Hopefully my new med's will help but I'm not expecting much.  An allergic reaction is different than just
having Asama but I'll see how it turns out.  I'm just starting on them today.

It would be nice to fly.  Long range predictions are 50% chance of rain but you know how that goes.

I've got about 5-6 rockets to sell and some items to give away.  I'll post them later.

Sorry about the rant on the medical issue.  Not a lot of people just know how bad allergies can be.

By the way I posted several of my last completed rockets on NAR facebook site.

Hopefully it will go.  As far as masks I can't wear one right now due to medical issues.  My doctor has got me on several new drugs to see if it helps in my breathing.  I have been tested once and will get tested every month.  Generally I'm in stage 2 or 3 right now in allergy attack.  Hyperventilation happens way to often.  Stage 4 is anaphlylaxis  which I've never had.  The CDC does allow for several exemptions including medical issues or kids 3 and under.  Hopefully my new med's will work and I can tolerate a mask.  I have two new inhalers and one pill to try.


If I can come providing we have a launch I have some stuff to give away and some to sell as well.

Now that Illinois has moved to Phase 4 of the reopening plan we have gotten the OK from the park district to hold launches at Dodds Park in Champaign. Our first scheduled launch will be on Saturday, July 11. We will plan on meeting there at noon to set up and hope to be flying by around 1 p.m.

We will be putting together a plan for how to hold the launch safely. Details will be forthcoming, but it will probably include not attending if you have a fever or don't feel well, setting up your stuff well separated from the rest of the participants, wearing a mask when not far away from everyone else and limiting the number of people who can be working at the pads at any given time. This will be our first time doing this and I'm sure there will be things that will have to be worked out. So I hope everyone will have patience as we figure out how to safely hold launches during this difficult time.
