    Hello!
    DJ dahlheimer
    @DJ_Dahlheimer_twitter
    Are you offering views for starlink 5 and atlas 5
    On 14th and 19th
    If so when will those tickets be available
    CAM Gerlach
    @CAM-Gerlach
    We're not currently planning on it, sorry, since neither launch features a landing which we provide unparalleled views of, and both will be within the hours of KSCVC and they'll likely have close-up viewing of the launch available with admission or for a relatively modest additional fee, making the boats not necessarily offer a clear advantage. As a volunteer-run, community supported organization, we usually focus on Falcon Heavy, RTLS landing, NASA CRS, and crewed missions, as well as other "special" flights (Crew Dragon IFA, Solar Orbiter, Mars 2020) where significant interest exists and we serve an unmet need in the spaceflight community, either providing a closer view or at a lower cost than comparable alternatives. Our next big launch is currently planned to be the Crew Dragon DM-2 first crewed mission; we although others may pop up on a case by case basis if enough people are interested and we offer meaningful value over the alternatives. Typically when we do offer a launch, we aim to announce it at least two weeks in advance and offer tickets at a set day and time a few days thereafter; we unfortunately cannot do them any earlier (though we announce earlier if practical) due to the terms and conditions of our payment processor. Hopefully that answers your questions!
    @DJ_Dahlheimer_twitter And sorry for the delay, trying to roll out important announcements for our CRS-20 mission at the same time.

    Greetings; I have a ticket for the launch attempt tonight, but it was the last ticket. I am hoping that there might be a spare one floating around for a friend of mine 😅
    conniehannon
    @conniehannon_twitter
    Michael likely we will have an additional ticket and possibly two on the upper deck.
    Michael Jordan
    @AviatorJordan_twitter
    Super cool :-) should I just come find you on check-in?
    conniehannon
    @conniehannon_twitter
    If we still have them available by then
    CAM Gerlach
    @CAM-Gerlach
    @conniehannon_twitter Sorry for the delay; apparently Mailchimp didn't send our pre-launch briefing email at 8pm last night like we scheduled it so the information didn't send out to you all until an hour ago when after several people messaged us, we realized there had been an error and re-sent it. You can see our Tickets page for full details, but the times are Checkin 9:45PM | Boarding 10:15PM | Departure 10:45PM . Let us know if you have further questions!

    Hi -- I'm looking for parking near the meetup location that will take a 25 foot RV -- we have no other transportation available. Can you help?
    Michael Jordan
    @AviatorJordan_twitter
    @conniehannon_twitter can I secure one before then? I gave my friend hope; Apple Pay Transfer or something?
    @CAM-Gerlach in case @conniehannon_twitter doesn’t come
    Michael Jordan
    @AviatorJordan_twitter
    ...through, would there be a chance of buying a second ticket for tonight?
    CAM Gerlach
    @CAM-Gerlach
    If @conniehannon_twitter doesn't come we can just refund her tickets and let you buy one. Unfortunately we have been booked up to 80 people on the boat for some time now, the max due to coast guard safety regulations. Especially in the choppy seas we expect, we don't want to take any chances overloading the boat, sorry, since safety is our priority. However, there is always a good chance of additional cancels or no-shows so they should have a decent shot as a standby. @AviatorJordan_twitter I'll let you know as soon as I do if someone cancels before checkin.
    I would even give up my spot myself but I'm running things remotely in Star Fleet Command here in Huntsville AL while Julia and Wayward will be our on site hosts.
    CAM Gerlach
    @CAM-Gerlach
    @AviatorJordan_twitter Just had 1 cancellation. You ready to order?
    Michael Jordan
    @AviatorJordan_twitter

    @CAM-Gerlach yes! I am driving
    Michael Jordan

    CAM Gerlach
    @CAM-Gerlach
    Sorry Gitter has not been sending me updates at all for some reason, it will say no new messages even if I check it and then hours later they will appear.
    If you're on our Slack mesage Ken Moscoe, he has one
    @AviatorJordan_twitter I have two others as well though several people interested in those
    I should be able to hold you the Ken Moscoe one htough
    Find Ken Moscoe and message him, sorry I gotta run to the store real quick before it closes, will be back in 30
    Michael Jordan
    @AviatorJordan_twitter
    Reached out, but no response... hopefully I can grab one from
    you at checkin :-)
    CAM Gerlach
    @CAM-Gerlach
    I'm actually 1000 km away in Star Fleet Command in Huntsville AL
    @AviatorJordan_twitter
    Don't worry I can just do it myself
    I can jsut drop a ticket from their order and then you can book through the system
    Can you call me at 571-488-5878 and we can arrange this?
    Michael Jordan
    @AviatorJordan_twitter
    I am at the checkin with my +1, and hoping I can get her in
    CAM Gerlach
    @CAM-Gerlach
    Or if you don't mind just paying him the money on site then that'll be faster and save some $ in fees
    Michael Jordan
    @AviatorJordan_twitter
    Let’s do it!
    i am here now
    CAM Gerlach
    @CAM-Gerlach
    Sorry I'm just not getting updates from Gitter at all unless I reload the page, can you message me on Slack instead?
    CAM Gerlach
    @CAM-Gerlach
    @nancyvenka_twitter Hey, our system doesn't show you as checked in. Were you able to find a parking spot? If you need to give me a call my # is 571-488-5878
    Terry Cox
    @terrycox
    Hello. Are you booking for the May 27 launch?
    🇨🇴
    @Sgira22_twitter
    Hello @terrycox, as long as the Florida stay- at- home order is in place, we will continue to follow those guidelines so a launch viewing event on the boats, unfortunately, will not be possible.
    CAM Gerlach
    @CAM-Gerlach
    @terrycox We will evaluate the situation as it gets closer to the launch, and let you all know what might be possible, but our highest priority is keeping everyone safe. Getting a bunch of people from all around the world on small boats for a significant period of time is pretty much worse case for spreading COVID-19, so while we're really excited for this launch, we're likely to err on the side of caution if there is still a substantial risk.

    Can you recomened some of the charter capatains?
    CAM Gerlach
    @CAM-Gerlach
    @OfficialIMDDA_twitter Sure. For six person smaller boats, we recommend Captain Greg with Sea Leveler and Captain Time with Get Down Charters. For larger boats (up to 18 people, we can suggest Captain Dusty with Time and Tide tours. Stay safe and hope you enjoy the launch!
