September 28 is a Saturday. That makes sense.

This is to confirm that the PA HPR rocket launch at area 51 is scheduled
for September 28.  Directions to the site:

(get out your trusty old Rand McNally...)

From Pittsburgh, Erie, Cleveland  Take Rte 79 to the Cranberry-Mars Exit
(which is also the PA Turnpike exit).  Take 228 east through Mars to Route
8 north.  228 will run along with PA 8 for a couple miles, and then exits
east.  Follow 228 until you come to a "Y" where 228 goes right, and the
other road goes left toward Saxonburg.  About 50 feet after you turn right
at this "Y", turn right onto Westminster Road.  Signs should be posted at
this point.  Follow Westminster to Miller Road and turn left.  Follow
Miller to a "T" and follow launch signs from there.  
Although the last launch was somewhat of a washout (Hurricane Fran and
all), the launch on the 28th promises to be the biggest of all.  Two
launch racks for lower and mid-power rockets and at least 4 or 5 high
power pads should make for less waiting and more fun.
