It is with a Sad and Heavy heart that I must pass on that we will not have an August launch. Sunday’s weather is likewise promising rain and thunder storms. We could chance it, but almost surely, it would bring on a deluge of biblical proportions. If I call off the launch, you can bet your last nickle that tomorrow will be a perfectly beautiful day to be outside.
So use the weekend to work on your rocket kits and inventory your motors. Then on September 15th, we’ll make up for this lost time.

Launch on SUNDAY (July 15) 1 to 3:30PM

Fellow Rocketeers, The weather for Saturday is showing strong indications that we’d have to contend with thunderstorms in the afternoon – pretty much right in the middle of our launch window.   And let’s face it, 1 Billion Volts of Lightning vs Baby Bertha Rocket would not, quite frankly, end well for the rocket, or anyone in the vicinity for that matter. Discretion being the better part of Valor, we’ll move the launch to Sunday (1 to 3:30PM).

Winds on Sunday should be very low, so high flying is a fine idea. Bring water & sunscreen. We should have a Pop-Up or two for shade (Eric? Dave?).

Hope to see you all there…. Keep the Pointy End Up!
