GO for Launch – Sunday July 27th!

We are a GO for our Sunday July 27th launch!  The forecast holds a risk of a passing thundershower or two tomorrow, so please plan accordingly.   We will be there and should a storm pop up, we’ll suspend launch operations until it passes.   We are as eager to make the most of the day as you are!

The range will be open to low, mid and high power fliers with our FAA high power waiver in effect.   The ultimate flight ceiling will be determined tomorrow based on sky conditions, up to a max of our allowed 5000 feet.    We’ll adapt throughout the day if conditions are changeable.

If you can’t make it tomorrow, don’t worry, our next scheduled monthly launch is less than 2 weeks away on Saturday August 9th!

Bonus Launch – Sunday July 27, 2014

We’ve added a bonus launch date to our summer schedule, with a launch scheduled for Sunday July 27, 2014.   The range will be open from 9am to 4pm for low, mid and high power fliers with our 5000 foot high power waiver in effect for the day.     We hope you’ll join us for this bonus launch opportunity.

Please note that our home vendor, Heavenly Hobbies, will not be available for this special launch date.  Please plan accordingly, or hit up one of the many well stocked people along the flight line if you need anything.   Rocketeers are always happy to help out a fellow rocketeer.

We’ll post a launch status update by Saturday evening.   The forecast currently holds a risk of a passing thundershower on Sunday, but that would not stop us at this time.   Tune in Saturday night for the latest.

Spectators and new fliers are always welcome!

An Awesome Weekend of Outreach!

Model rocketry is a hobby many might be familiar with, but if interested, are unsure how to get started.   In our hobby it is important to pay it forward and share what we know and do with others.

On Saturday July 19th we gathered at North Branch Park in Bridgewater to help the local Scout council build and launch rockets.  We aren’t just talking about a dozen boys, but over 80 scouts and acquaintances!   All together we estimate over 200 model rocket flights.   Thanks to near windless conditions for most of the day, most every rocket made it back, and ALL had an awesome time!   While we Radical Rocketeers might be an enthusiastic bunch, nothing could top the enthusiasm of our young fliers.   Thanks to all who made the event possible and to all who participated!

On Sunday July 20th a contingent of Radical Rocketeers continued the tradition of conducting an exhibition model rocket launch on the closing day of the Morris County 4H Fair.   Pleasant conditions brought out a nice sized crowd of spectators.    The many launches of rockets of all shapes and sizes were received by cheers.   Thanks to our young volunteers who formed our “recovery team” and performed the very important, yet fun, task of bringing the rockets back in from where they landed.

Both events were a blast!    Thanks to all who helped out and to our eager participants.    We hope to see you all at an upcoming Radical Rocketeers launch!

July 12th Launch Report

We were graced with a mostly windless day with abundant sunshine for our July 12th launch.    A decent number of rocketeers came out to make the most of the great flying conditions.    Our flights ranged from A impulse on the low power pads, right up through a couple of I motors on the active high power range.

A special congratulations to Charlie Kirlew who stopped by, and with great mastery, easily attained his NAR Level 1 High Power Certification on a picture perfect flight.    Welcome to High Power Rocketry, Charlie!

We had several new faces along the flight line.   If you were one of those new faces, either a rocketeer or spectator, we do hope you had a great time and will return again at an upcoming launch,
