Balloon Launch for Tomorrow - Saturday February 5, 2011
Greetings Everyone,

I just got off the phone with the Lake Charles Weather Station, and they 
are saying our winds are looking great for a launch tomorrow. As are the 
conditions for our plane to join in the recovery efforts out of New 
Iberia. Our team is planning to meet in the CAPE Lab tomorrow morning 
between 5:30 am and 6:00 am to begin preparing our vehicles for the day. 
Around 6:30 am we will be calling the Lake Charles Weather Station for a 
final update on the weather conditions, and using their data and our own 
predictions based off the winds make a final decision to fly or not 
tomorrow. Assuming we can fly tomorrow, Our Lake Charles Team will be 
leaving the lab at 7:00 am, and should be ready to release the balloon 
by 8:20 - 8:30 am. We will be sending out recovery teams around 8:00 am. 
Currently we are predicting a landing in Moureaville, LA. This is 
variable to change though.


Anyone interested in joining us for the day in the lab are more then 
welcome to join us. I will be sending out another email in the morning 
once we've determined the final decision to fly.
