OktoberFest Cancelled.

Sorry folks.

The BLM is telling us they lost our application for the 17-19th and gave those dates to another group.  Tripoli headquarters is working to see if they can get the FAA to move the waiver to another weekend.   We will keep you posted as we get more info.

To be clear OktoberFest will not be the weekend of the 17-19 and the new date has not been set yet.

OktoberFest and Rockets!
