CENJARS September launch 9/7

Hello Rocketeers,

It’s time for our September launch. We are still under social distancing rules but things are starting to look better. The number of new cases is dropping. If we maintain our vigilance, we can kick this virus. With schools and restaurants re-opening, that may prove challenging.

Weather reports for Sunday are good but a little breezy.

Speaking of schools re-opening, you may be experiencing virtual schooling again. Let’s call it schooling re-opening. With that in mind, let’s have schooling as our theme for this month. What have you learned lately?

In case you didn’t remember, here’s the social distancing rules that we are following:

These safety rules were put together with guidance from the NAR and state rules.

· Parking – Participants should park with larger than usual gaps between vehicles. We will have safety cones at every other space. Please don’t drive over them. ?
(I may stop this one. I think you have all been pretty good about keeping your distance. Comments are welcome.)

· Check-in/safety check – We will not be using flight cards at this time. Each rocket will be presented to the LCO (from a distance) and the rocketeer will provide verbal information on the rocket and motor. We will have two pads setup so two people can load their rockets at the same time. Only one person or family group at a pad at a time. Pads will be cleaned between launches.

· Cleaning – We will have some hand sanitizer available. You must provide your own mask and gloves.

· Personal Protection Equipment – Masks covering your mouth and nose must be worn in the common areas (the LCO area and the launch pads).

· When in doubt remain home – If you are ill for any reason, please remain home and be safe.

· Personal areas – Wearing PPE in your prep area is a personal choice. Please setup your prep area at least 6 feet from others.

Happy flying,
