CENJARS September 2021 launch report

CENJARS September 2021 Launch Report

We were expecting gentle winds from the southwest and that would have allowed us to stay in the corner of the lower field. Mother Nature kicked up the wind a notch or two and sent us to the upper field (Again!). Not a big deal. We had a lot of wonderful people help get all the equipment and all the food up since this was our annual picnic.

We also were joined by Scout Troop 50, and they had a great time launching some of their new builds. Even with the brisk winds, several of them didn’t stop at the standard A8-3 motors and went with some B6-4s. That is one adventurous Scout Troop. Might be because one of their leaders is a member of CENJARS (Steve K.)

We had several memorable flights including several gliders, one of them radio controlled. Not sure if that one ever came back from its flight to the woods. We had a few Skywriters in honor of back to school, a cluster of 3 motors, and a couple of multi-stage flights. Peter had a lesson in picking the right size motor for the rocket. Brian tried very hard to fly a G motor but after 6 attempts, he decided it wasn’t his day. Eat-Mor-Chicken returned from being lost in the woods last month for a much easier recovery this month.

After some good food, good people, good launches, and all the equipment packed up, Mother Nature sent some rain to tell us to go home. A really good day. Thank you all for being part of this community.

There was a total of 78 flights and 83 motors burned. Here are the motor totals:

29 – A motors
23 – B motors
16 – C motors
8 – D motors
6 – E motors
1 – F motor
Almost 1 – G Motor

We have Wall Kid’s Day America coming up on September 25th. This is a chance for us to support Wall Township and thank them for letting us use the field. We will be doing demo launches. We are not doing builds this year.

Our next launch is scheduled for October 3rd. We will be celebrating Halloween. Will Charlie ever get that skeleton to launch? Will Brian bring back the witch? What’s in your rocket cauldron?
