Happy New Year to all! We are excited to kick off a new year of flying with our first launch of 2019 scheduled for Saturday January 12, 2019. As always, our launches are weather dependent so be sure to check back for launch updates, and a final GO/NO-GO for this launch date the day before.
Flying at the farm can be a bit more challenging in the winter depending on how Mother Nature treats us. One common condition will be the potential for early morning frost on the field. In cases where this looks to be a likely condition we may opt to adjust our launch start time a bit later (an hour or so) than the typical 9 am start. This would provide an opportunity in some cases for the field to defrost a bit before we venture onto the sod. We’ll post final start time specifics for each winter launch date along with the final GO/NO-GO announcement for each launch, so be sure to check for these updates.
The club treasurer has been working hard and among other things has secured a PayPal account for the club. Watch the site for updates very soon with ways you can conveniently renew your club membership electronically using PayPal.
We are GO for our Saturday December 8th launch! The fun kicks off at 9 am. Its going to be cold, so dress warmly. We should have good flying conditions. We hope to see you there!
December is upon us, and so soon will be our next launch! Our next launch is scheduled for Saturday December 8, 2018. The range will be open to low, mid, and high power fliers with our high power waiver in effect. The fun will kick off at 9 am and run as late as 4 pm, or until everyone is done flying. We hope to see you at the farm! Be sure to check back Friday evening for a final GO/NO-GO for Saturday’s launch based on the latest weather outlook.
While you are at the farm, please remember the great people at the farm who allow us use of their land to hold launches throughout the year. The Country Christmas Shop is now open at the farm. You can pick up a fresh cut tree, a beautiful handmade wreath, or other seasonal decorations. A perfect way to decorate your home while saying “thank you!” to our hosts.
Sorry folks but we are going to have to scrub for tomorrow’s (Nov 10th) launch. Tonight’s soaking rains are leaving the field in a condition unsuitable for our use. Also, tomorrow strong winds are expected which will exceed safety limits, not to mention would make for some unpleasant flying. We’re checking our calendars and will announce a makeup date shortly. We are as eager to get out there and fly as you are. Sorry for the inconvenience, but sometimes Mother Nature wins!
Cloudy and cooler with a slight chance of a passing shower tomorrow, but we’re going to make the most of it. We are GO for our Saturday September 8th launch! The fun kicks off at 9 am. We’re usually out there until around 4 pm but if showers do move in for awhile we could wrap up earlier. Moral of the story: Fly early.. Fly often.
