Well weather has it out for us this December. Though a pleasant evening tonight, a rather damp and rainy day is forecast for Saturday. Sadly this doesn’t make for suitable flying conditions. Our December 23rd launch has been scrubbed.
With the holidays upon us, our next launch opportunity now won’t be until January. Hopefully that will provide some time for you to ready any of your new rocketry gifts for flight by then. We have received word back from the FAA that our high power waiver has been renewed for 2018. So now all we need are some suitable conditions, and a whole new year of rocketry fun will begin!
Thank you to all of you who have supported us throughout 2017. We look forward to seeing many old and new faces out at the farm in 2018. We hope you all have a happy and safe holiday season!
We are currently targeting this Saturday, December 16, 2017, for our next launch. After snows kept us grounded last weekend, we are hopeful weather will cooperate for this launch opportunity. We will post a final GO/NO-GO for this launch by Friday evening, so please check back.
Our last scheduled launch for 2017 is on Saturday December 9th. We continue to fly throughout the winter, but this will be a good chance to get in some flying before the real chill of winter sets in.
Our launches kick off at 9 am and run as late as 4 pm, or everyone is done flying. From model rockets to high power rockets, everyone is welcome!
Be sure to check back the evening before launch day for a final GO/NO-GO for the scheduled launch. This will be based on the latest weather outlook for launch day as well as a last minute assessment of any potential temporary flight restrictions impacting our launch site.
The Country Christmas Shoppe is now open at the farm. Please help support our gracious landowners by doing some of your holiday shopping there this season. Selections include Christmas trees, wreathes, garlands, and more! Thanks!

The weather forecast is for a chance of a light shower overnight and possibly early tomorrow morning. We’ll be out at the field, and should a shower pop up early, we’ll wait it out as improving conditions are expected through the day, with light breezes and mild temperatures. We hope to see you there!
