GO FOR LAUNCH on SATURDAY 28th of JUNE

WE ARE GO FOR LAUNCH on SATURDAY 1 to 3:30PM!!!

Having been thwarted by 2 months of shaky weather, we FINALLY have a great day ahead for us on Saturday… skies clear, winds low, and the temps will be in the low 80s.

Bring your rockets, motors and some potassium tablets in case your smile muscles get all cramped.  ;)  (Oh yah, water, bug spray might be good to have on hand.)

We are GO (conditionally) for Sunday’s launch!

There is a 30% chance of rain from 1-4PM Sunday, but those same odds Saturday ended up in sunny, blue skies, with the rain holding off until after 4 PM.

I (Eric Swanson) will be running the launch Sunday, so if you are of hearty New England stock, or are at least made of more waterproof materials than your rockets, I hope to see you at the Courser field on the corner of Schoodac (SKOO-DACK) and Couchtown (KOOCH-TOWN) roads in Warner!

Weather NOT cooperating! Please answer poll

Fellow Rocketeers,  The weather is not what was forecast… at my home it is raining, Eric, who lives near the field says it is not raining – for now! Three weather sites differ somewhat, but all show about 30%-40% chance of rain today and the same for tomorrow (Sunday). After talking with Eric, we’d like to say that if we can get 5 or more people to say they will come, then we will do the launch today. If we cancel today then will you be willing to come tomorrow (assuming weather conditions improve and we get 5 or more people willing to come out)?

If we launch today OR Sunday, we will have a pop-up tent available in case it rains. Winds will be low.

Please vote the polls below ASAP (before 10:30) and stay tuned to this website for updates.
