CENJARS December 2018 launch report

CENJARS December 2018 Launch Report

Despite the low temps and a weather delay of 1 week, the rocketeers came out for another wonderful launch. We had 55 flights and burned 64 motors.

We had several holiday flights including Mark Stevens’ and Charlie Kirlew’s Christmas Tree rockets. We also had the Grinch’s Surface to Air Anti-Sleigh Missile.

We seemed to have had an abundance of CATOs at this launch, at least 4. A couple of the rockets will need major repair, while others were fine and flew later in the launch. Fortunately, Jeff Miller’s Cluster Duck had no issues with 7 C motors all firing.

Brian did a few modifications to a launch control system and it proved to be a worthy endeavor, easily igniting clusters and high power motors.

With some very light winds, we had a lot of higher power motors. Unfortunately, we did lose one rocket to the very top of a tree. Here are the motor totals:

10 – A motors
9 – B motors
23 – C motors
10 – D motors
5 – E motors
5 – F motor
2 – G motors

Our next launch is scheduled for January 6th. Happy Holidays and Happy New Year to all.

Hello Rocketeers,

Just a reminder that we have the re-schedule launch this Sunday. Light but cold winds. Is there hot chocolate in your future?

CENJARS December launch Sunday 12/2/2018

It’s time for our December launch, this Sunday at the Wall Athletic field at 12:30. The theme for this month is Holidays! The weather reports aren’t great right now but there’s plenty of time for them to improve.

Early warning! We must have done a great job at our outreach events because we are being asked back. Here’s what’s on the calendar besides our regular launches.

– AMA Expo East February 22-24th. This has been a great time where we get to help hundreds of people build rockets.
– West Windsor-Plainsboro Innovation Fair May 18th. A huge educational fair with over 2,000 participants last year.
– Apollo 11 moon landing 50th Anniversary July 20th. Plans are already in the works for a big celebration.

Happy flying,

Charlie
