CENJARS December 2017 Launch report

CENJARS December 2017 Launch Report

What a wonderful day to launch a rocket or better yet, 67 rockets! The temps were in the 50s and the winds were light to nonexistent. With such light winds, the A motors were scarce, and the larger motors were the norm.

A few of the notable flights were Dan’s gliders, one of them being a disk that flew very nicely. Brian had a new toy that runs a video camera to track his rocket. It worked fairly well but could use a little tweaking. As part of the December tradition, Charlie launched his Christmas tree on an E motor. No reindeer were hurt on this flight. With just a little bit of peer pressure, Brian also launched Hermes the Elf. Hermes returned to earth safely but had no comment on future flights.

One interesting note, we had at least 3 different Crossfire rockets launching this month. Should we do some drag races with them?

Next month’s theme – New Year, new rocket. What in your build pile?

We had a total of 67 flights and burned 72 motors!

9 – A motors
19 – B motors
33 – C motors
2 – D motors
3 – E motors
5 – F motors
1 – G motor

October Launch Report

CENJARS October 2017 Launch Report (as reported by Jon Henbest)
Following our annual meeting at Attillio’s we enjoyed a busy afternoon of rocketry.  Some new friends and exciting launches made for an enjoyable afternoon.  The rain held off and the winds were light enough to allow for some more powerful rockets than we have been able to do in recent prior months, but the low cloud cover kept most below the ceiling.  We had 42 launches in total with several from the club’s new wireless launch pad which worked nicely.  Launch totals for the day included:
3 – A motors
4 – B motors
23 – C motors
2 – D motors
6 – E motors
2 – F motors
2 – G motors
At the annual meeting, the following officers were elected for 1 year terms beginning January 1, 2018:
President – Charlie Kirlew

Vice President – Jim Zindle

Treasurer and Webmaster – Mike Centrella

Secretary – Jon Henbest

Lastly, join us on Dec. 3rd for our next launch day.  Keep safe!

Launch is on!

We will have our launch today right after the annual meeting. The meeting is at 12:30 at Attillio’s. Launch is at 1:30. Did you set your clocks back?
