|Big skies early in the day.
The day didn't start out very promising...big cu's and overdevelopment and we thought the day was done, but then it blue'd up nicely for the afternoon. The strong east winds were problematic though...transitioning to the rim is harder when it's east vs. west. And it was quick tricky on launch too...I launched early and heard that the later launchers were doing the Chelan Butte Shuffle as they tried to find the best place to launch. And we had one reserve toss drifting towards the powerlines, slight injuries since he landed on a hard road vs. a soft moondust field.
