November elections and launch

It’s time for our November launch and election.
Here’s the list I have of people that have let me know that they are interested in being in officer of the club for 2018.

President – Charlie Kirlew
Vice President – Jim Zindle
Treasurer and Webmaster – Mike Centrella
Secretary – Jon Henbest

The plan is to meet at Attillio’s in the Kmart plaza just East of our launch site at 12:30 on Sunday November 5th. Please let me know if you plan on attending. The club is picking up the tab.
We should be at the launch site by 1:30. Current weather reports call for the possibility of rain but they have plenty of time to change their minds.

Happy flying,

October 2017 launch report

CENJARS October 2017 Launch Report

Another wonderful day for launching rockets. The winds were a little fluky in the beginning but settled down as the day wore on.

We had a visit from a Webelos den to launch their rockets. Most of those flow on A motors, but a few were bold and flew on Bs or even C motors. That’s how good the winds were.

Our regular fliers were bold also and flew some F and G motors. Unfortunately, it looks like we lost at least one rocket as it flew out of the area.

Since this is October, we had out Halloween theme going. Brian flew a skeleton rocket fairly successfully. Charlie tried one as well but needs to go back to the drawing board. Charlie also offered a “Before and After” contest with a witch’s hat rocket. That one needs to go back to the drawing board as well. The results of the contest were 12 ”Before” pumpkins attached and 4 “After”. The winner was Grant who guessed 13 and 6 for a total of 3 off. He won a coveted Lemon Drop rocket “kit”

We had a total of 51 flights and burned 53 motors!

15 – A motors
12 – B motors
20 – C motors
0 – D motors
0 – E motors
4 – F motor
2 – G motors

Our next launch is scheduled for the fifth of November. We will be having our annual meeting and election of officers. The launch theme will be Thanksgiving. Will Charlie have a reconfigured pumpkin rocket? Details to follow.

CENJARS October launch

Hello Rocketeers,

It’s time for our October launch. This is going to be exciting. Not only do we have our October Halloween theme, we have a Spot landing contest. I haven’t determined the rules on that one yet, nor have I determined the prize. ? I have 2 rockets for the Halloween theme, both will be heads up launches. We also have a Webelos den visiting to launch some of their rockets.

If that wasn’t enough fun, we have another contest – “How many before and after?”. It’s like the one we did around Christmas last year. You have to guess how many things on the rocket before launch and after launch. No other clues. The fabulous prize for that one will be a Lemon Drop kit.

The weather looks great for the launch as well. Looking forward to seeing all of you again.

Happy flying
