GO for Saturday October 8th Launch and Contest!

We are GO for our Saturday October 8th launch and Fall Open Contest! The fun kicks off at 9 am and runs as late as 4 pm.   All fliers and spectators welcome!

A clarification on the Fall Open contest events.   Our last post had originally omitted one of the events.   We will also be flying C boost glider at this contest.   See our last post for the comprehensive list of contest events.

There is an increasing chance of a passing shower as we get into the afternoon.   So if you can, flying earlier in the day than later would be prudent.  :)

GO for Saturday August 13th Launch and Contest!

We are GO for our Saturday August 13th launch and contest! The fun kicks off at 9 am and runs as late as 4 pm. Our 5000 foot FAA waiver will be in effect.

A couple of advisories for tomorrow. We are expecting temperatures in the 90s and high humidity. Please be sure to pack some cool drinks to keep you hydrated throughout the day. If you have any portable shade, that might be good to bring along too. Also, there is an increasing risk of thunderstorms as we move into the afternoon hours. If you can, please plan your flights for the earlier portion of the day. We’ll pause through any showers which pop up, but a heavy drenching storm in the afternoon could cause us to wrap up early.

Next Launch – Saturday August 13, 2016!

We’ll be back out at the farm on Saturday August 13th for our next launch!   The range will be open to low, mid, and high power fliers with our 5000 foot FAA waiver in effect.   The fun starts at 9 am and runs to roughly 4 pm.     Everyone welcome, from curious visitors to experienced fliers!

Remember, if you need supplies for this upcoming launch, we encourage you to reach out to Jose at Heavenly Hobbies.   He has a great line of rocketry supplies from model rockets right up through high power rocketry.   Pre-order via http://www.heavenlyhobbies.com for free delivery to the field on launch day!

We are very eager to get back out flying.   We’re sorry that the stars didn’t align to allow us to schedule a Bonus Launch in July, but we’ll be taking every advantage we can of the balance of this great flying season.   Hope to see you out at our August 13th launch!
