In September 1944, the allies launched a massive combined-arms assault to seize bridges over the Rhine River in the Netherlands and Germany, permitting British and American tanks to invade Hitler's thousand-year Rheich and end the war before Christmas.
Known as “Operation Market Garden,” it was a bold plan that relied on lightly armed paratroopers to seize three strategic bridges and hold them against ferocious German opposition until the tanks arrived. Beset by delays and logistical problems, the allies only managed to capture two of the three bridges, with the third coming to be known as “a bridge too far.”
I fear that Droneapalooza has become my very own personal bridge too far. We've had great partners to work with on this project, including our friends at Fly-A-Ways RC Club, who have met and exceeded every expectation on their side of the equation but the piece left to us – specifically me – was to promote this event.
Normally, this is what I do – but unforeseen circumstances have intervened. Within the next couple of days, we will be announcing a massive, life-altering development here at the Roswell Flight Test Crew. Don't worry – it's wonderful news and I can't wait to share it with all of you. However, preparing to make that announcement has meant an onslaught of projects that have been been nearly all-consuming – and left me with no time to lay the groundwork for Droneapalooza.
Thanks to the hard work of everyone around me, I know that everybody who does show up is going to have a great time – hopefully you among them – I just hope that the event achieves some measure of its potential, in spite of my inability to give it my full attention.
