URGENT: June 10th Launch Postponed due to flight restrictions

We have been made aware of Temporary Flight Restrictions covering much of northern Jersey, including our launch site.    They are in place as the President visits Bedminster this weekend.    Banned flight activities within a 30 nautical mile radius of Bedminster include rocketry.   Sorry for the late advisory.   Please share this alert with any friends who might have been coming to the launch.

We are tentatively targeting next weekend as our new launch date.

The start time for our launch on Saturday May 20th will be NOON. Come on out for a great afternoon of flying on the farm! Stop by the greenhouses for a few items for the garden. Then hang around while we welcome the Scouts from Independence, joining us at 4 pm. Help the Scouts fly their rockets, or even show them some of your own in the air.

It promises to be a great day! We are GO for launch!

Next Launch and Contest – Saturday April 15th!

After dealing with pesky winter weather and other logistics, we finally have our sights on our next launch date. We thank you for your patience. We are itching to fly just as much as you are!

We will get back to flying with our next scheduled launch Saturday April 15, 2017. This is one week later than our usual monthly launch date as a large contingent of our members will be attending the national LDRS rocketry event in Maryland, held April 6-9th.

In addition to our regular low, mid, and high power flying on April 15th, we will also be holding the Flower Power 2017 contest which had been postponed from March.

In all likelihood with Spring and April now upon us, conditions will only continue to become more optimal for flying as we approach our April 15th launch date. Hope to see you all on the 15th! :)
