July Launch Report

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!)

Launch on Saturday… ?

Fellow Rocketeers,
I have been watching the ebb and flow of Saturday’s weather forecast for days. In short, it’s good, then not good, then good, then not good….
OK… Keep an eye on the website, and/or e- mail and/or facebook. I’ll keep you posted. I plan to make a GO/NOGO decision on Friday. I may cancel the launch or postpone to Sunday. If it still raining on Sunday, we’ll just look forward to a June launch.
Cheers,
mike
