Its been a rainy Friday in the region, but the rains are forecast to end overnight, and the sun will return tomorrow. While this will leave the ground conditions a bit soft, we are going to proceed with our scheduled launch tomorrow, 12/7.
Please be advised that it is going to be a bit colder tomorrow than it has been, with temps topping out only in the 30s. Please dress accordingly.
Setup is scheduled to commence at 9:30am. Given the forecast cold and less than optimal ground conditions, we reserve the right to conclude the launch earlier than the usual 4pm. We’ll play it by ear or see how numb we get. We hope to see you there!
Please note the special date of our next launch!
Our December launch will be held on Saturday December 7th. This is one week earlier than normal to avoid a conflict with the MDRA Red Glare regional rocketry event in Maryland, held this year December 13-15.
Heavenly Hobbies will be at the launch. Feel free to place any advance orders via http://www.heavenlyhobbies.com. Jose has everything from rocket motors, to kits, to accessories for everyone from the low to high power flyer.
Our normal monthly club meeting scheduled for December 7th will not be held. Please contact any of the club board by email or the club forums if you have any important issues which need attention.
We are GO for our Saturday November 9th launch! The forecast is for partly sunny skies and southwest breezes from 5 to 10 mph. Temperatures are expected to start in the 30s and rise to around 50, so please dress accordingly.
The range will be open to low, mid and high power fliers, with an FAA waiver in effect for flights up to 5000 feet. Setup begins at 9am. Hope to see you there!

The TRF Community Traveling Rocket is in town and will be at this launch! If you are eager to see it, or perhaps get a chance to fly it, be sure to come out to our launch this Saturday. With launch opportunities in the region dwindling this time of year, this may be the last chance to see it before it continues its journey around the country.
