Next Launch – Saturday May 14, 2016!

Our next scheduled launch is Saturday, May 14, 2016.   The range will be open to low, mid, and high power fliers with our 5000 foot FAA waiver in effect.   Our launches typically start at 9 am and run until at least 4 pm.    A good day of fun and flying for all!

For those of you eager for Bonus Launch dates, while we didn’t quite figure how to fit one properly into April’s calendar, rest assured that come May you will start seeing them pop up on the schedule.   We are eager to get out and capitalize on the prime flying season, just as much as you are.  :)

Heavenly Hobbies is our recommended source for rocket supplies from low to high power.  Jose makes free deliveries to all of our launches.     Get your pre-orders in ahead of launch day and you’ll avoid all the hassles of shipping and Hazmat fees.    There are no on field sales, so plan accordingly by ordering ahead.   http://www.heavenlyhobbies.com

Weather this time of year can be a bit unpredictable.    Recent warmth and rain has really helped diminish any snows remaining from our recent blizzard.    There is a chance of a bit of snow on the 9th.   We’ll monitor that and any other weather threats and post a final GO/NO-GO for this launch by the evening of the 12th.
