CENJARS Agust 2018 Launch Report

CENJARS August 2018 Launch Report
We had a great day on Sunday, August 5th, for friends, food, and flights! Two months in a row we have had good weather and successful launch days, which is a nice change after last winter and spring. The weather was hot and sunny on Sunday, and we had a great crowd of people. We had our annual picnic, with the club providing sandwiches and drinks, and others bringing sides and desserts to share. Many delicious foods, including homemade ice cream and other delectable desserts. Two new members joined and we had many familiar faces and some new ones enjoy the day. Hope to see everyone again!
We had one rocket that was lost out of sight and another that took a swim in the pond across the street, but it survived to fly again later in the afternoon. In total we had 62 flights with 68 motors including multi-stage and cluster rockets. Totals by motors are below:
14 – A motors
16 – B motors
15 – C motors
9 – D motors
7 – E motors
4 – F motor
3 – G motors
Join us on September 2nd for our next club launch and bring your “Back-to-School” rockets! Maybe a “pencil” drag race can be held?

CENJARS August launch and annual picnic

Hello Rocketeers,

It’s time for our August launch and our annual picnic. The club will be providing sandwiches and drinks. We ask that you bring a salad or dessert.

Please let me know by Friday night if you will be attending so I know how much food to get.

Right now the weather reports look acceptable.

I’m working on my build pile and bringing back an old favorite. What do you have going?

Happy flying,


CENJARS July 2018 launch report

CENJARS July 2018 Launch Report
Our monthly launch was held July 1st. Though hot, it was a gorgeous day which has been hard to come by on planned launch days in 2018. We had many rocketeers eager to get back to flying after our May and June launches were cancelled due to bad weather.
It was great to have so many families join us, including 3 generations of rocketeers. We had one rocket that tried to make a dent in the parking lot. It lost the battle. We also had one get stuck on the wires. Otherwise, all other rockets made it back home.
This month we had 75 flights with 80 motors including multi-stage and cluster rockets. A record number of launches in recent years. Totals by motors are below:

14 – A motors
19 – B motors
27 – C motors
10 – D motors
6 – E motors
2 – F motor
2 – G motors

Join us on August 5th for our next club launch and annual picnic!

CENJARS Bonus launch cancelled

Hello Rocketeers,

Looks like it will be wet all day. The Bonus launch is cancelled. I really don’t understand this. I sacrificed 2 rockets last week to the trees. We should be getting better weather.

We are scheduled to launch next Sunday, 7/1. Keep your fingers crossed.

Happy building,


June launch cancelled

Hello Rocketeers,

Bummer! We’ve got rain coming in again. The June launch is cancelled.

We do have the bonus launch on Saturday June 23rd with the Civil Air Patrol. This will be held at our field, but remember, it’s on Saturday.

Also, I need to know who else can help with our demo launch this Saturday at Quail Hill. If you haven’t responded, please let me know today so I can put in the head count.
