Next Launch: June 20th!

Mark your calendars! Build your Rockets! Get ready to send those graduates to the moon!

Just kidding! Flying recent graduates at a NAR launch is most definitely against the rules. ;)

See you on June 20th, 1 to 3:30PM, weather permitting. Be sure to check back here on Friday afternoon (June 19th) for a weather update.

Summary and footage from April launch

Hello All,

Saturday’s launch was cold and windy. By about 2:30 we’d launched all the rockets we wanted. Prompted by the cold, we decided to wrap up early. (Apologies to whose who arrive after 2:30. We do not normally do not end this early. Sometimes we even run to 4PM if there is sufficient interest.)

That said, Eric got some GREAT up-close footage of several launches and, thanks to his hi-speed iPhone 6 was able to play it back slow-motion. Video can be found here: https://youtu.be/kdtUEv9SG3I

Next launch: May 30th! See you there!

April 25: GO FOR LAUNCH!

Update: we’re here, but wrapping up at 2:30. Next month: may 30!

Fellow Rocketeers,

We are GO FOR LAUNCH on Saturday April 25th, 1PM to 3:30PM!

The temps will be in the 50’s, skies partly cloudy, but the winds will he high-ish: 10-15mph from the northwest. Make sure you cut spill holes in your ‘chutes. If you launch anything high ( eg. ‘C’ or ‘D’ impulse), best to have streamer recovery.

See you all there!

Fellow Rocketeers,

Let the WHOOOOOSH! BEGIN!

First launch of the year is Saturday April 25th from 1 to 3:30PM. If the weather is not good, I am not sure we will have coverage for Sunday, so pray for good weather.

Is it Spring yet??

Fellow Rocketeers,

Spring is inching closer by the millimeter!¬†Feels that way, doesn’t it?

I am happy to report that Tim & Jenny Courser, our Beloved Landowners, have agreed to allow KARS to use their farm field for our 11th Model Rocket Season! Thanks Tim & Jenny!

I don’t have a schedule to post yet, but let’s assume we’ll start late April or Early May. Check back in April for more updates. Until then, order some kits and motors and alleviate these Cabin Fever days by building some new rockets.

Keep the Pointy End UP!

Cheers, Mike Bellino, KARS President
