August 23rd Launch Recap + Upcoming Events

August 23rd Launch Recap:
The forecast for our Saturday August 23rd bonus launch didn’t hold up quite as nicely as expected.  While we did dance among a few light rain drops at times, the winds were nearly non-existant, and the hearty crew that did turn out took full advantage of it sending rockets skyward as high as the clouds would allow.    A full day of fun without too much of a hike for most recoveries.   Thanks to all who made it all worth while.

Club Meeting / Build Sessions:
Our club meets the first Saturday of each month at the Northeast Branch of the Warren County Library, located on Rt 46 west, just west of Hackettstown.    Our next meeting is  Saturday September 6th starting at 10am.

We’ve also added rocketry education and build sessions to our monthly agenda.   These are open to the public and free!   If you are new to rocketry or eager to learn more about this exciting hobby, the education and building starts at 11am, immediately following the meeting.   Bring a kit and join the fun!

September Launch and Contest:
Our next schedule launch is Saturday September 13, 2014 starting at 9 am.   The Open Skies 2014, NAR competition, has been sanctioned by the NAR and is GO for our September launch. The events are:

Streamer Spot Landing 4,
Predicted Duration 8,
C Streamer Duration 10,
E Egg Lofting Duration 18,
C Boost Glider Duration 20

We fly year round and look forward to an active late summer and fall flying season!
