In August 2018, Kloudbusters put out a press release announcing that their field will be the site of the next Tripoli Large Dangerous Rocket Ships (LDRS) Annual Launch.

Next month I am going to launch a rocket on behalf of the Veterans of Foreign Wars(VFW) Post 4283 which is based in Dade City, Florida. They are always looking for ways to raise money to cover their operating expenses and to make capital improvements. They also like to gamble a little bit…. So I thought that I would build a rocket and let people buy predictions on how high it will fly. The winner will get one half of the prize pool and the Post will get the other half.
The rocket launch is scheduled for the January launch ( January 19, 2019 ) on Tripoli Tampa’s field near Plant City, Florida. Some of the Post members have said that they will be attending the launch. If you are interested in attending this launch, check out the Tripoli Tampa website for information on attending a launch or contact me.Continue reading “VFW Post 4283 Launch”
