We are GO FOR LAUNCH on Saturday April 30th from 1 to 3:30PM!
The temps will be in the low 60’s and winds very low (about 2-4mph). Skies partly cloudy. About as good a day for launching rockets as you can ask for.
As Jim Flis likes to say, “Aim for the sky and try not to miss.” See you all there!
Well. Spring is finally here!
I am pleased to report that our Beloved Landowners have agreed to allow us to launch from their farm field for 2016 (Thanks Tim & Jenny!). and the insurance forms came through.
The first launch for 2016 will be Saturday April 30th from 1 to 3:30PM. If canceled due to rain (or other bad weather) we’ll look to the following Sunday (same time).
As usual, we’ll make a GO/NOGO decision sometime around 24 hours prior to launch.
Check back here for updates.
Keep the Pointy End Up!
Hi All, Yeup! Been thinking about 2016 launches! I have not received the insurance certificates. Send email to the National Association of Rocketry to check on status. Hoping to start this month.
Use this time to polish of your new kits, fix those cracked fins & organize your field box.
Thanks for a really fun 2015!! We ended the year with a great crowd and some spectacular flights. (See the videos just below this post!)
Thanks to the Coursers for letting us use their farm field for (I think) our tenth year! And thanks to Eric Swanson for his many set-ups and tear downs.
Enjoy the holidays, stay warm, build a bunch of rockets and we’ll see you in April 2016!
Thanks to Melissa & Daniel for these videos….
It will be a Picture Perfect day for the FINAL KARS launch of 2015. Skies partly cloudy, winds low (about 5-7mph) temperatures in the low 50’s. Time: 1 to 3:30PM.
Let’s polish off the 2015 KARS Rocket Season with a whole bunch of launches!
See you there! – Mike
I apologize for the change, but we are NOT going to launch on Oct 17 or 31st, but we WILL hold our FINAL launch of 2015 on Oct 24th from 1 to 3:30.
We will not have a November launch this year.
So join us for some final rockets gushing skyward and whiffs of blackpowder in 2015 on the 24th of October.
See you there!
