August 20th Alkay Airport launch may be cancelled due to thunderstorms

Michigan Team-1 members and friends:

I've been keeping track of the weather and there is an 60% to 80% chance thunderstorms this Saturday for the Aug 20th launch at the Alkay Airport. We may need to cancelled due to thunderstorms. Even "if" it is not raining I will still need permission from the landowner that we can come. If the runway if soft, hauling the equipment across it on the little trailer will leave ruts, and we are not allowed to do that.

I should have a "go/no go" decision by noon Friday and will post it to the yahoo group and the web site as soon as I get clarity from the landowner. But it does not look good.
