March Top Gun Two Day Eventadministrator
3/27/23 – The weather didn’t cooperate for our March event. Ian, our Event Director, had called great tasks for Saturday, but we all knew that the winds were going to be too strong to get in the air. Ian held a short session at the end of the briefing to answer questions and discuss strategy had we been able to fly. We even learned the answers to questions about procedures for Common Launch Areas (CLA), the use of flags, and allowed exceptions to the launch period at the CLA.
On to Sunday…after our briefing by Event Director, David Eichhorn, we trekked over to Double Eagle airport to do our first ever event in coordination with Double Eagle and the City of Albuquerque. The media was there. We had some great interviews with our Top Gun members. We were all set to launch and fly to targets on and off of the air field, but then there was snow! Well, here we are the last weekend in March in the desert Southwest, and we get snowed out! Welcome to New Mexico. See ya next month!
