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!

Hello Rocketeers,

It’s time for our March launch. The temps look ok for Sunday, but the winds may be an issue. We’ll keep an eye on them and hope that March comes in like a lamb, not a lion.

Looking forward a little, the first Sunday in April is April 1st. While this would work well for flying some interesting rockets, it’s also Easter Sunday. Let’s postpone the April launch to April 8th.

Happy flying,


PS: Club fees are now due so please bring to launch with 2018 application or mail in.
