CENJARS March 2021 launch

Hello Rocketeers,

Let’s start off with the new email list. We are going to use Google Groups for sending email. You should receive an email from cenjars@googlegroups.com later today. You don’t have to do anything for this change except check your spam folder if you don’t receive something. This change will make it easier to maintain the list. Also, only officers can post email so it should cut down on the number of emails you get from us.

Now back to the important stuff. This Sunday is our next launch. Weather reports look good with temps on the cool side and winds out of the northwest. The theme for this month is Spring! Fly a flower, a tree, or something green. It will help everything to warm up, I promise!


Happy flying,

Charlie

CENJARS February launch cancelled

Hello Rocketeers,

We’re cancelling the launch for today. The winds are a little too bitter and the field is still snow covered making walking and retrieving rockets a little challenging. We are scheduled to launch in 2 weeks and it looks like the snow will be gone by then.

Go build something,

Charlie

CENJARS launch postponed to 2/21

Hello Rocketeers,

The freezing rain has made the field difficult and dangerous to navigate. We are postponing the launch to next week. The weather for next Sunday looks a lot more favorable.

Stay safe,

Charlie

CENJARS February launch postponed to 2/14

Hello Rocketeers,

With rain and snow in the area, we’re postponing to next Sunday, 2/14. Right now, those forecasts aren’t great either with high winds. There’s a chance we will try for the 21st if the 14th doesn’t work out.

Stay warm,

Charlie

CENJARS February Launch 2/7

Hello Rocketeers,

It’s time for our February launch. The weather reports are not looking promising at the moment with rain and possibly more snow in the forecast for the 7th. The 14th looks a little more promising if you are a penguin with a high temp of 27 degrees and a bit windy. If we do get to launch this Sunday, plan on some damp fields. We will make the call early Sunday morning.

Looking ahead, Our March launch theme will be Spring! Launch a flower, a tree, or something green. April will be an egg lofting contest. The rules haven’t been established but there will be cool prizes. Get your egg lofters ready now! There are many out there, a little internet search is all that is needed. By the way, Easter Sunday conflicts with our launch so I will take comments on whether we should postpone to the next Sunday, the 11th.

Happy flying,

Charlie
