Fellow Rocketeers,

Temps in the low 70s, winds expected to be low, partly cloudy. All-in-all, it ought to be an amazing day for a July launch. (Typically July is the hottest month, usually with temps in the 90’s.)

See you there and Keep the Pointy End Up!

Next Launch: July 25th

Saturday the 25th from 1 to 3:30PM… rain date is Sunday, same time.

July and August are typically the least windy launches of the year…. finish up those high-flyers and bring’em. Maybe the winds will cooperate!

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!
