Descon12 Extension Vote

With only 1 month left and only 1 complete + 2 partial entries.... I'm
wondering if the RMR communittee would like to extend Descon12 by 1-2
months?
The concern is two-fold, 1) have folks had time to get a design
together (whether it gets mission points or not)?; and 2) is it fair
to the sponsors if there are very few entries?
What's RMR's thought?

I would extend it a month. As of right now, I am way behind because of some vehicle problems(car started spewing antifreeze from close to the head gasket, and roasted the motor in my van). The way I figure it I would be done by the first week in december with my first entry but I wanted to get 2 done(a friend said you can have 2 entries but I never confirmed).

Although you may think I'm biased, I say leave it as is. The date was voted on and set. No surprises. Besides, I know several people here are waiting until the last moment to submit their design.

I've got the FlisKit in hand, and two designs worked out with some test fittings. I expect to make the published deadline. The only hurdle will be getting a flyable day in the next month. Adding a month or two to that isn't going to help the Green Moutain flyers. Spring is a loooooong way away.
Leave it as is, I say. That's all the sooner we can kick of DesCon 13 for a fair weather flight in 2004.

nope, but familiar with the tactic.
Got one of my writeups done for DesCon, not I have to build and launch and take pictures. then do everything for the other one. luckily I have them picked out and will be working on them over thanksgiving (i'll be slicing parts instead of turkey)
