Potential Joint launch with Springfield Tripoli Mo Kan

I have been in contact with Gary Cole from the Springfield club about a repeat of last years two day joint launch. We have come up with a proposed date of June 3-4, 2017. We could not find a workable date in May. We will run a NAR contest as part of the event with me as the CD. I plan to include G helicopter as one of the events.

Let me know what you think.



Items from tonight’s meeting

As before, we have a few items from tonight's discussion to make you aware of:

  • If you are planning to attend the Addieville launch on January 29 (still tentative until we know what the weather will be), please email me at admin@stlouisrocketry.com to RSVP. We will need to stay in contact with flyers in case the weather is borderline, to make sure we don't put the expense and effort into setting up for a launch that no one attends.
  • The January Addieville launch will be held under the same FAA waiver as the previous launch (standing waiver to 8500' AGL with call-in windows to 14500' AGL). We are pleased to report, however, that beginning in February, we will have a new, higher waiver: 17500' AGL standing, with no windows required! Thanks go to Rob Chapie and his contacts with the FAA for making this happen, along with thanks to the entire club for running safe launches and flying safe rockets - our good track record makes this possible.
  • John Buckley and Gary Cole are interested in hosting a two-day launch in the spring at the Walnut Grove site. John's thought is to plan this for around the beginning of May, after farm field launches have wound down for the growing season. If you are interested in helping plan this event, please email admin@stlouisrocketry.com and I will pass your info on to John.
  • I will soon be coming up with a launch schedule for our Buder Park launches. We will have something similar to last year, one launch per month and probably on the weekend following the monthly meeting, but we plan to try a mix of Saturday and Sunday dates. If you are interested in helping to plan and run these launches, please email me at admin@stlouisrocketry.com.
