May Launch is a GO!

May 5th, 2022

To all, the waiver and NOTAM are set up for Saturday 7 May 2022; 1A4 05/142.  The weather looks good, there could be a pop up shower.  It will be warm so bring plenty of water.  Also bring the usual like shade, hats, lunch, sunscreen and rockets.  Chris Short will be vending but will not be at the June launch.

They are planting grass seed at the farm, please stay off the grass until we can show you where we can park and where we can’t.  We can walk anyplace on the farm and that will not affect the grass, we just need to be careful about driving and parking.

See you Saturday.

We will have a hand sanitization station and we will be cleaning and sanitizing common surfaces throughout the day. If you or anyone in your party or home are sick or have experienced COVID like symptoms in the last 14 days, please stay home this weekend and join us for the next launch instead! Our main goal is to keep everyone me safe while enjoying a day of rockets!Observers, beginners, youth, scouts, and families are all invited to attend. Bring the rockets, and the club will supply the launch equipment. Setup will begin at 8:30 am CST and the launch will kick off at 9:00 am CST. We will wrap up at 5:00 pm CST. There is a range fee of $10 per carload of flyers. Be sure to bring a sack lunch, sunscreen, and water.
