CENJARS December Launch 12/5 at 12:30

Hello Rocketeers,

Our December launch is this Sunday at 12:30. The theme for this month is Holidays, of course. Any holiday you want to celebrate. The weather looks pretty reasonable for December except for the wind direction.

This will be my last launch as president of the club. I’ll still be around but taking a back seat to the new gang. I’m looking forward to the new year and all that it brings. It’ll be a blast.

Happy flying,

Charlie

CENJARS November 2021 launch report

CENJARS November 2021 Launch Report

The winds were gentle and not too cool for our November launch. We were able to stay somewhat near the parking lot. This was very helpful since we also had our annual meeting.

We had a total of 45 flights and burned 48 motors. Most of the rockets stayed in the field although Franz had one go to the far very tall trees. I am happy to report that it was recovered a week later. One of the launches was a drag race between Eric and Joe. There were many discussions and evidence and sworn statements about who won the race. I am staying out of this except to say the rules should be agreed upon beforehand. This may be an ongoing rivalry.

The annual meeting gave us a brief “state of the club”. We’re doing fine and we had a great year. We are doing well financially, too. We have some new officers for 2022. Charlie finally stepped down as President. Brian will be taking his place. Jim and Tom remain as Vice President and Treasurer. Eric is joining us as Secretary. Although Charlie has stepped down as President, he is still taking on the job of equipment manager for now.

Charlie was very appreciative of the many kind words, And everyone was appreciative of the wonderful cake to celebrate the many years that he has served the club.

Here are the motor totals:

9 – A motors
13 – B motors
11 – C motors
9 – D motors
5 – E motors
1 – F motor

Our next launch is scheduled for December 5th. We will be celebrating any holiday you want.

CENJARS November launch 1/7 at 12:30

Hello Rocketeers,

It’s time for our November launch and our annual meeting. We will be having pizza and drinks at the field so let me know how many people will be there and what you would like on your pizza and what you want in your glass.

Current weather reports look good and predict a short annual meeting and some long launches near the parking lot.

Happy flying,

Charlie

CENJARS October 2021 launch 10/3 12:30

Hello Rocketeers,

It’s time for our October launch. We will be celebrating Halloween this month. I have been working on a new and improved skeleton rocket. Well, it’s new and bigger. We’ll have to see about improved. Weather reports are acceptable, but there’s plenty of time for them to improve. How will you celebrate?

If I can get my act together, we will also have another garage sale. Lots of cool stuff has been donated to the club. All offers accepted.

We have been invited back to Quail Hill Scout Camp on Saturday October 16th from 10 – 4:30. We could use some help on this one since at least one of our regulars has a prior commitment.

Also, next month will be our annual meeting and elections. I’ve already heard that our treasurer is coming back for another term. As you may recall, I have decided to retire from the president position. Now is the time for you to take the helm or at least help guide the rocket ship. Let me know if you have any questions.

Happy flying,

Charlie

CENJARS at Wall Kids’ Day America 9/25

Hello Rocketeers,

We will be at the Wall Township municipal complex this Saturday. The event runs from 10 to 2. We need to be there early to setup, 9ish should work. Please let me know if you can help us. For those of you that have already responded, a quick confirmation would be appreciated. We will be talking rockets, displaying rockets, and flying (small) rockets. The weather looks to be perfect!

This is one way for us to say thank you to Wall Township for letting us use the fields every month.

Thanks,

Charlie
