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.



CENJARS June launch and upcoming events

Hello Rocketeers,

The launch for Sunday is looking good, but we have a bunch of other events coming up as well.

Next Saturday (6/16) is a demo launch at Quail Hill Scout Reservation. I need to know how many of you can help demo and talk about rockets. They’ve given us our own (small) field this year so it should be good. Please let me know by this Sunday if you think you can help out. I have to get a head count to them.

The Saturday after that (6/23) is a bonus launch for CENJARS. The local Civil Air Patrol is doing a model rocketry program and could use our help to launch their rockets. They will be managing the launch with our guidance. We will be able to fly some of our rockets as well so come and join us and them the variety of rockets that we have.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Happy flying,


June launch postponed

Sorry Rocketeers, Mother Nature wins another round. The winds are too strong today to launch rockets. We will try again next week.

Also, we will have a bonus launch on Saturday June 23rd. More details on that shortly.
