21 PAX strong met in the gloom to help launch the new AO RocketTown. YHC came in a little hot, due to some hot chocolate malfunction in the front seat of his vehicle. Upon arrival, several PAX noticed that RocketTown looked a bit underwater, however, YHC arrived just in time to let them know they wouldn’t have to take out their snorkels.
Soon, the new shovel flag was planted, the group circled up for the warmarama, and YHC was taken aback by the number of PAX in attendance plus one who forgot his workout gear. YHC’s own father decided to “hang out” and observe the launch as a spectator. Is that even allowed? Anyway, enough preamble…
After the normal disclaimer, the PAX circled up for the Warmarama
