CENJARS December launch 12/6

Hello Rocketeers,

It’s time for our December launch where we celebrate the holidays. Weather report for Sunday is a little on the breezy side right now. If we have to cancel, we may not be able to postpone since there are new covid restrictions starting on Monday that limits the number of people that can gather outside. We will keep an eye on all factors and send out emails as soon as we can. In the meantime, be safe and enjoy the holidays.

Happy flying,

Charlie

CENJARS November launch postponed to 11/8/2020

Hello Rocketeers,

100% chance of rain today during our launch. We are postponing to next Sunday. It will be a busy day. Not only do we have our regular launch and our annual meeting, we will have a scout launch and a scout visit.

We will try to get the pads up and running at 12:30 with our meeting at 1 pm.

I still need to hear from folks as to what pizza and soda they want.

Happy flying and stay dry,

Charlie

CENJARS November 2020 launch and annual meeting

Hello Rocketeers,

It’s time for our November launch and our annual meeting. Due to the COVID restrictions, we’re going to have our annual meeting at the field. We will be getting pizzas and sodas. It would be great if you would let me know what type of pizza and soda you would like.

Also, every year we elect new officers to run the club. If you are interested in helping the club, please let me know. While we have someone to fill each of the officer positions, there are some folks that would gladly step aside for someone new to help out. The positions we elect are: President, Vice President, Treasurer, and Secretary. Some additional non-elected positions include, Senior Advisor(s) and Equipment Manager. Feel free to ask (without obligation) about any of these positions.

Now back to the important stuff. The theme for the launch is thanksgiving. Make a statement about what you are thankful for. Weather forecast is a little iffy at the moment with a chance of rain and a bit windy. As always, I will send an email out Sunday morning if we are postponing.

Happy flying,

Charlie

CENJARS help needed for Scout demo launch

Hello Rocketeers,

We are scheduled to do a demo launch for the Scouts at the Quail Hill Scout Camp in Manalapan this Saturday. The event is from 10- 4 so we need to be there by 9 to setup. The scouts have been trained in social distancing and we will need to do the same. I recommend wearing masks as well.

This is a great opportunity to show the public what rocketry is all about. Please let me know if you can help or if you have any questions.

Thanks,


Charlie

CENJARS October 2020 launch

Hello Rocketeers,

It’s time for our October launch! Where did September go? Kind of spooky isn’t it? Speaking of spooky, that will be our theme for this launch. Halloween of course! I will be attempting my skeleton rocket again. What will you be launching?

Current weather reports look good and we should be setting up near the parking lot. We’re still doing COVID protocols of wearing masks and keeping our distance when possible.

We have a couple of extra events planned, as well.

October 17th from 10-4 we’ll be at the Quail Hill Scout Camp. We should have access to the main field so we can launch some larger rockets with more chance of getting them back. Let me know if you can help with this event.

November 8th from 12:30 to 3:30 – We will have a bonus launch for Cub Scout Pack 152. This will be the same as our last bonus launch with the scouts having priority at the pad.


Happy flying,

Charlie
