We are GO for our Saturday August 25th launch! Beautiful weather and finally a weekend with no Presidential TFR means it should be a great day for flying!
With late summer vacations and other things on people’s schedules, we’ll be a little short staffed tomorrow. If you can spare a little of your launch day to help with setup, tear down, or pushing the button to launch some rockets, it will help things run a bit more smoothly. Thanks!
We’ll be setting up at 9 am and should be out on the range as late as 4 pm, or until everyone is done flying.
The current weather outlook is fantastic. We hope you can make it out to the farm for some rocket fun!
The President will again be in NJ the weekend of August 18th. As a result our launch must again be postponed. We will now target Saturday August 25th as a launch date. Hopefully we’ll catch a break. Stay tuned!
Our next launch which was scheduled for this Saturday, August 11th has unfortunately been postponed due to a Temporary Flight Restriction (TFR) in effect impacting our airspace while the President is in Bedminster. TFRs such as this shutdown the airspace to activities, including rocketry, for a 30 mile perimeter around Bedminster, NJ. We are unfortunately within that radius.
The current TFR is in effect through Monday August 13th. Therefore we have now moved our launch date to Saturday August 18, 2018. Fingers crossed that nothing interferes with that date.
Longer term we are exploring what avenues we have to get clearance to conduct our launches even when a TFR is in effect. Can’t promise anything, but given that we are a good distance from Bedminster, its at least worth a shot.
We are GO for our Saturday July 14th launch! The fun kicks off at 9 am and runs as late as 4 pm. It looks to be a great day for flying. Hope to see you there! Newcomers and spectators always welcome.

Hope to see you there for what promises to be a great day of flying! Spectators and newcomers always welcome!

The farm has requested a little help tomorrow. Joe needs a few hands to help with a few short tasks around the greenhouses. If you can spare a small part of your day it would be greatly appreciated. They’ll be plenty of time to also get a good deal of flying in. Its important to help our hosts at the farm, so any time you can spare to give back a bit would be much appreciated! Thanks!
