Sorry I haven't been on much the past few days guys. The weather has improved a bit and so getting ready for winter has been the priority. Things should calm down a bit after today and I can get everything written up for Silver Level.

Even if launch windows aren't timed, we should at least specify that the flights be consecutive and on the same day.

Tim, 30 minutes was suggested earlier. The reasoning was to simulate waiting your turn between flight groups at a contest. A +/- "x" minutes to keep people from sandbagging is a good idea. The contest guys can give us the "usual launch window" I'm sure. Joe should even know since he does contests as well. And we will specify that the flights be consecutive and on the same day.
