The High Altitude Balloon (HAB) Club is ready to launch. The HAB Club is hoping the balloon it releases this month will make it to 85,000 feet. The original launch date was March 3, but after running the weather prediction software, the group decided to postpone the launch. The launch date is now scheduled for 9 a.m. March 24 at the Forestview Middle School south parking lot.
