September Launch Report and Upcoming Events

CENJARS September 2017 Launch Report (as reported by Jon Henbest)

Our normal launch day was postponed until September 10th due to weather on our regularly scheduled weekend, but the postponement was worth the wait. The weather was beautiful.  Sunny, dry, and relatively light winds. 61 launches in total.

With a back-to-school theme, we had a small school bus rocket takes its maiden flight and a drag race of four pencil rockets.  A few rockets found the trees but all are believed to have been recovered. Launch totals for the day included:

18 – A motors
17 – B motors
17 – C motors
6 – D motors
2 – E motors
1 – F motors
0 – G motors

Upcoming events to consider helping at:

September launch

Just a reminder, we will be having our September launch this Sunday. Weather looks great! Should be in the low 70s and bright sunshine. The wind shouldn’t be too strong either.

September launch postponed to 9/10

Due to continued rain and very wet ground, the September launch has been postponed to next Sunday 9/10.

CENJARS September Launch

Our September launch is scheduled for this Sunday, 9/3 at 12:30.  It’s a back to school theme.  How many Estes Skywriters can we launch?  Weather reports are changing daily so stay tuned.

CENJARS August 2017 Launch Report

What a wonderful day for a rocket launch. Even the winds cooperated and even got better as the day wore on. Naturally as the winds calmed, the bigger motors came out including several clusters and 2 stagers.

And if that wasn’t enough, we had our annual picnic at the field. We had plenty of food and desserts including some homemade ice cream from Brian to celebrate his birthday! Great weather, great food, great launches, great people. What more can you ask for?

We had a total of 63 flights and burned 70 motors!

12 – A motors
20 – B motors
24 – C motors
11 – D motors
1 – E motors
2 – F motor

Next month we will be celebrating back to school. How many Sky Writers can we launch?

Looking even a little farther ahead, October will be a spot landing competition. Get ready to zero in on your launching skills.
