A Huge Thank You to the Warren County Parks Board. We now have a site we can call home. Our Main Site will be Hisey Park, but the Board was gracious enough to have alternative sites as well. 

The park is also home to the Warren County Astronomy Club and it is worth the visit to stop and see the new observatory that was just built. 

The way this works is that, I will notify the Park Board of our intent to Launch. I wanted to let them know in the event that the park is scheduled for other things. There is a dog park, barns for weddings that take priority, so if there are other events going on, We Will not Launch. We want to be good stewards of the park and take good care of it.  This is a great opportunity to promote our sport.
