Anyone else planning on flying at the VAST launch on either Sat July 18th (TRA Commercial) or Saun the 19th (Research)?
If so.. please RSVP here, as Chuck requested:
Assuming we could caravan.. as carpooling is probably not a good idea upon. Still.. if caravanning together.. no reason we can't meet at McDonalds in Cburg for bfast going out of town.
