CENJARS September 2018 Launch report

CENJARS September 2018 Launch Report
Back-to-school and Back-to-Rockets! What an amazing turnout on Sunday, September 2nd! Our good luck with the weather continued this summer as the winds were light and the temperatures warm. Keep your fingers-crossed that the good weather continues into the Autumn for our coming launch days. With the wind direction, everyone had to hike a bit to get to the launchpad from their cars, but it was worth the trip. Very nice welcome to Troop 50 from Toms River and the many others that joined us.
We had a record breaking 112 flights using 117 motors and lots of great fun. Totals by motors are below:
34 – A motors
36 – B motors
26 – C motors
13 – D motors
6 – E motors
2 – F motor
0 – G motors
Join us on October 7th for our next club launch and consider assisting CENJARS at the annual Wall Township Kid’s Day on September 22 from 10am – 2pm at the Wall Township municipal complex. Each year we attend this community event, display many rockets, perform some small launches, and build some rockets. It is a fun day to show others model rocketry. Please let Charlie know if you are able to help with supporting the community that supports us (remember we get free use of the Wall High School athletic fields).

CENJARS September launch

My apologies for the late notice.

Hello Rocketeers,

It’s time for our September launch. Yes, the unofficial end of summer is approaching. Lighten your hearts with a rocket launch. The theme is “Back to School”. The launch will be at 12:30 at the 18th Avenue field. Time to practice your spot landings!

Coming up on the calendar is the annual Wall Township Kid’s Day on September 22 from 10-2 at the Wall Township municipal complex. Please let me know if you are able to help with supporting the community that supports us.

Happy flying,

Charlie

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,

Charlie

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!
