CENJARS May Launch

Hello Rocketeers,

It looks like Spring is finally here. The weather report is calling for temps around 60 and light winds. A perfect day to launch something in honor of Mom. We will also be marking Star Wars Day. I have 2 Star Wars themed rockets that I hope to launch. What do you have? May the 4th be with you.

The Calvary Christian School will be joining us for our May launch. Always a pleasure to have them join us. We should have a very busy day on the field.

Upcoming events

Saturday May 19th – We have been asked to do a demonstration and display at the West Windsor-Plainsboro Innovation Fair. Extra help is needed for this.

Saturday June 16th – We’ve been asked back to Quail Hill Scout Camp for another demonstration. Help is needed for this.

There’s a few other events in the pipeline. I will let you know as I get details.

Happy flying,


CENJARS April Launch Report

CENJARS April 2018 Launch Report
Our monthly launch was held April 8th. It was a bit brisk and windy, but still a wonderful day for launching rockets.
Many good launches were enjoyed by the young and the “young at heart.” A couple of rockets were lost or damaged due to the winds drifting and deployment failures, but not to be deterred, rocketeers persevered and nearly doubled the number of launches we had a year ago.
This month we had 45 flights and burned 48 motors – with one cluster of 3 and one 2 stage rocket.
10 – A motors
11 – B motors
19 – C motors
4 – D motors
1 – E motors
3 – F motor
0 – G motors
Our next launch is scheduled for the May 6th. Bring your mom for Mother’s Day which is the following weekend. Hope for good weather and calm skies so we can enjoy many launches.
Another upcoming event that you might be interested in is NSL 2018 which is being held Memorial Day weekend. Check it out at https://www.nar.org/site/nsl-2018/.

CENJARS April Launch

Hello Rocketeers,

Ah Spring, when the daffodils get a light coating of snow. Weather reports for this Sunday are acceptable, although a little breezy. Spring themed rockets are in order.

Baseball, hot dogs, apple pie, and rockets! We have been invited to the opening day at the North Wall Little League. This is at 2600 Belmar Blvd. on April 21st. from 8:30 to 12 Noon. Please let me know if you can support this event. We’ll be talking and launching rockets to hundreds of people.

Looking a little farther into the future, we have been invited to Quail Hill Scout Reservation again on June 16th. More details on that next month.

Happy flying,


April Launch Date

Our April 1st Launch has been moved to April 8th due to the Easter Holiday. It will be held at the same time and place:12:30 pm at the 18th Avenue field.

CENJARS March launch report

March Launch Report:

Finally! The weather cooperated with us for the first time in 2018 and we had a successful launch day this past Sunday. A few new faces joined us this weekend which is always welcome. We greatly enjoy sharing our love of rocketry with newcomers, whether they are new to the hobby or just new to our group. A few hard landings were experienced by some but no rockets were lost even though the winds were unpredictable at times (typical March weather!). Several SkyWriters launched as did several different Crossfires. The more powerful F and G motor rockets as always were crowd pleasers. In total, over 50 launches.

Launch totals for the day:

10 – A motors
20 – B motors
12 – C motors
5 – D motors
2 – E motors
1 – F motors
2 – G motors

Please also note that our April launch day has been moved to April 8th, due to Easter Sunday being on April 1st. Hope to see you there!

Another upcoming event that you might be interested in is NSL 2018. Check it out at https://www.nar.org/site/nsl-2018/.

Remember to be safe and see you in April!
