We are GO FOR LAUNCH on Saturday September 9th from 1 to 3:30PM. This will be a simple gorgeous day… partly sunny skies, low winds, temps in the low 60s and low humidity.
Remember: Our KARS Contest for KIDS
will be going on… DETAILS HERE
It looks inevitable that Saturday’s rain will come right during our scheduled launch. We’ll have to move to Sunday, which will be a picture perfect day EXCEPT the winds will be 12-13mph. Let’s stick to A and B motor rockets with spill holes cut out in the parachutes. A C or D motor rocket would be fine if it is heavy and won’t go much over 500 ft.
On the bright side The breeze will keep it cool and the bugs at bay.
Same hours: 1 to 3:30PM
See ‘ya there!
The next KARS launch will be Saturday, August 5th! Clear your calendars and c’mon out! Check this website on the Friday before for a weather update.
I am happy to report we had a number of new folks join us at the July launch… but the winds were crazy! The surface and mid and upper winds all happened to be going in different directions and speeds. It was difficult to set the launch rods at a good angle.
So it is no surprise we lost 3 rockets. But that is not the end of the story!
One rocket was recovered with the long rocket pole. Then, after the launch, Edward went on a mission and not only recovered the Bull Pup, but also his big ‘E’ powered rocket from a distant tree!
In the end, all the rockets were recovered! (Thanks, Edward!)
