January 13th launch postponed

The weather is just not cooperating for tomorrow. Today’s rains and snow melt have left the field way too soft, and a sharp cool down and winter weather advisory is likely to bring icing tomorrow. Long range has next weekend looking quite viable so we will now target Saturday January 20th for a launch. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

December 23rd scrubbed due to rain.

Well weather has it out for us this December. Though a pleasant evening tonight, a rather damp and rainy day is forecast for Saturday. Sadly this doesn’t make for suitable flying conditions. Our December 23rd launch has been scrubbed. :(

With the holidays upon us, our next launch opportunity now won’t be until January. Hopefully that will provide some time for you to ready any of your new rocketry gifts for flight by then. We have received word back from the FAA that our high power waiver has been renewed for 2018. So now all we need are some suitable conditions, and a whole new year of rocketry fun will begin!

Thank you to all of you who have supported us throughout 2017. We look forward to seeing many old and new faces out at the farm in 2018. We hope you all have a happy and safe holiday season! :)

Conditions are unfavorable for supporting a launch tomorrow 12/16.   We will set our sights on one more launch opportunity, Saturday December 23rd.   Winter flying can be an uncertain proposition, but we’ll be out there when we can!

Next launch Saturday December 9th!

Our last scheduled launch for 2017 is on Saturday December 9th.   We continue to fly throughout the winter, but this will be a good chance to get in some flying before the real chill of winter sets in.

Our launches kick off at 9 am and run as late as 4 pm, or everyone is done flying.   From model rockets to high power rockets, everyone is welcome!

Be sure to check back the evening before launch day for a final GO/NO-GO for the scheduled launch.    This will be based on the latest weather outlook for launch day as well as a last minute assessment of any potential temporary flight restrictions impacting our launch site.

The Country Christmas Shoppe is now open at the farm.   Please help support our gracious landowners by doing some of your holiday shopping there this season.   Selections include Christmas trees, wreathes, garlands, and more!    Thanks!

GO for Launch – Saturday October 14th!

We are GO for our Saturday October 14th launch! The fun kicks off at 9 am and we’ll fly to roughly 4 pm

The weather forecast is for a chance of a light shower overnight and possibly early tomorrow morning. We’ll be out at the field, and should a shower pop up early, we’ll wait it out as improving conditions are expected through the day, with light breezes and mild temperatures. We hope to see you there!
