Launch – Sunday August 7th

Our next Launch is Sunday August 7th at 12:30pm at the 18th Avenue Location.

Hello rocketeers,

It’s time for our August launch and the weather report looks good again.  This will be a great time to practice your Spot Landing for the October launch.  Practice makes perfect.  There is a mid-power rocket kit at stake here.

After the launch, we will have our first annual picnic.  The club will provide burgers, dogs, and soft drinks.  I hear that some ribs will be provided as well.  It would be great if members could bring a salad or dessert.  Please let me know if you plan on attending so I know how much to buy.

One more item.  We had some bad luck with the weather this year so a number of people haven’t paid their dues yet.  Well now is a good time to do that since the dues are reduced after July 1st.  Check the by-laws for the details.

Happy flying,

Charlie

Launch Today July 3rd at 12:30pm

Hello rocketeers,

It’s time for our July launch at the 18th Avenue location and the weather report looks good. Fly something red, white, or blue to celebrate your freedom to launch rockets! Not everyone has that freedom.

Next month (August), we will have our first annual picnic. The club will provide burgers, dogs, and soft drinks. I hear that some ribs will be provided as well. It would be great if members could bring a salad or dessert. Please let me know if you plan on attending so I know how much to buy.

Next Launch May 15th – SCRUBBED!

Sorry rocketeers,

The launch is cancelled. The winds will be at 20MPH and climbing by the time we get setup. I am going through withdrawal.

For our June launch, we will be celebrating Spring (now that it has finally arrived), Mother’s Day, Star Wars Day, and Father’s Day . So take a picture of the flowers you gave to Mom with R2D2 in the background, and put it on a Big Daddy rocket. Don’t forget about our ongoing spot landing contest.

See you in June,

Charlie Kirlew,

Club President

PS: Please DO NOT attempt to use the field without the club… ever as it would be considered illegal trespassing and have us lose our launch privileges. Thanks!

 

WEATHER PERMITTING. KEEP CHECKING BACK TO WEBSITE FOR INFORMATION PRIOR TO LAUNCH.

The theme will be ECO SPRING… so bring your Spring themed or launch a flower or flower colored rocket.

New, Experienced and observers welcome to attend.

 

Launch this Sunday March 6th

Bring your Easter rockets to our launch this Sunday March 6th at 12:30pm at the 18th avenue location.

PS: If you have not already done so please fill out the membership form and bring along with your club dues to the launch.
