I just heard from Dan Welling that the launch is go. The official launch time is 10:00 am to 4:30 PM. In the past members have met for breakfast at 8:30 a.m. in Elsberry, but right now (9:30 PM Friday) I have not heard of any plans to meet before the high power setup. Dan will be bringing the equipment and that will determine the time of the setup, but I don’t know his exact plans. I’ll update this post if I here differently. I plan to arrive at Elsberry between 9:00 and 9:30 a.m. If you need to contact the launch site, email email@example.com and I'll reply with my cell phone number.
Launch fees for this launch is $10 for high power and $5 for model rocket fliers. All fliers must be either an NAR or Tripoli member for insurance purposes. Membership cards will be verified at the RSO table during flier registration. In addition, all high power fliers must also be members of the St. Louis Rocketry Association. Membership can be obtained at the launch site and will cost $10 until the end of 2013. Model rocket fliers do not have to become members. Spectators are always welcome and must remain in the spectator areas. Walk on fliers who are not members will not be able to fly model rockets unless they have contacted a member of SLRA prior to the launch.
Only level 1 NAR or Tripoli members will be allowed in the launch preparation area. All other fliers must be escorted in the launch prep area or to the actual launch pads by a SLRA member.
Dates and locations of all launches are as accurate as we can foresee, however, the launch information on this page is subject to change. Please confirm the launch status of any given launch on the front page of the SLRA web-site before leaving for the launch site. All “High Power” launches are held at our Elsberry, Missouri launch site. “Class 1″ rockets (including “model rockets”) are always welcome at our “High Power” launches at Elsberry if you are a member of Tripoli or NAR or are under 18 years old. Those over 18 who are not members of Tripoli or NAR and have not made prearrangements with SLRA will not be able to fly at this launch. Spectators (non fliers) are always welcome at all of SLRA’s launches.
We have a waiver at Elsberry that is good to 6000 MSL with windows available on demand during the day of the launch to 15000 MSL.
