CENJARS April launch 4/10

Attention CENJARS fliers,

Next month’s (April’s) launch will *NOT* be held on the first Sunday of the month. It is being postponed to the 10th of April. This is due to a large component of our club attending MDRA’s Red Glare launch event.

The April 10th launch will have two special events:

First, a scouting group from Toms River will be joining us. This group has a number of rockets that were donated to their pack. They will need assistance with choosing motors and readying their rockets for launch. I see myself and other senior rocketeers assisting them. Don’t be afraid to lend a hand as a it’s good experience.

Second, one week after this launch is Easter. In keeping with that, we will be holding an Easter egg loft contest. Prizes will be awarded. The rules are fairly simple.

— You choose a rocket that can loft an egg (a raw egg which makes it much more fun and mess).

— You must fly it on an Estes C6-* motor.

— We will not be judging based on altitude because it would mean every contestant would need to fly an altimeter; however, we will judge on time aloft and, perhaps, closest recovery.

— Eggs *MUST* be returned to LCO/contest judge(s) for inspection. Scrambled eggs are just that, scrambled, as are your aspirations of winning the contest’s grand prize. I hear it’s quite a basket full of fun.

— Don’t fret if your egg is primed for the omelette pan, there will be a consolation prize for the most spectacular scramble.

This should be an egg-citing launch egg-sperience.

See you at the field!
