CENJARS April 2021 launch

Hello Rocketeers,

It’s time for our April launch. The weather reports aren’t looking good right now with occasional rain forecast for the whole day. We will make a decision early Sunday morning if we are going to postpone to next week.

The rules for the egg lofting contest are below.

Let me update you on a few events we have coming up. The North Wall Little League has asked us back again for their opening day festivities. This is 4/10 from 9-12. Setup time is 8:30. The weather reports aren’t good for this either. We’ll make a call on this Friday night.

April 17th is a “Rocket into Scouting” event at Quail Hill Scout Camp. We will help perspective scouts launch a rocket that they built earlier in the day.

May 8th we will be helping a Scout Troop launch their rockets in Lakewood.

Extra help is needed for all these events.

And now back to the egg lofting event.
