First things first - since our next regular meeting day (the fourth Tuesday of the month) falls on Christmas Day, there will be no club meeting for the month of December.
Secondly - surprising probably no one who has been checking the weather forecast like we have - the high-power launch is postponed another week due to rain, rain and more rain. Our launch date is now Saturday, December 8 and the location is still planned to be Addieville.
The rest of this post is a copy/paste of the earlier announcement, for your reference:
Range setup will begin at 8:30am and we can start flying rockets as soon as setup is done - so the more people that come early to help, the sooner we can start!
This will be a Tripoli launch held under Tripoli Research rules, so experimental motors are allowed for Tripoli members with the proper certification (although the RSO of course has the final say). There will also be a NAR NRC competition held alongside the high power launch and NAR members are welcome for either competition or sport / recreational flying. We will have 1/8", 3/16" and 1/4" launch rods along with 1010 and 1515 rails. If you are launching a rocket weighing more than about 20 pounds and need the "monster" launch pad, you must let us know ahead of time, as we may not bring it if it's not needed.
Our FAA waiver permits flights up to 17,500 feet AGL (approximately 18,000 feet MSL). If you are planning a flight over 10,000 feet AGL, please bring simulation results to show to the RSO, to avoid any risk of violating that waiver altitude. (We have a great relationship with the FAA and want to keep it that way!)
There will be a $10 launch fee for high-power fliers, to defray the cost of renting the porta-potty for the day. Model rocket flyers will have a launch fee of $3, but this fee is waived for paid SLRA members. These launch fees are per family and good for however many flights you want to do.
Here are the latitude / longitude of the flying field, along with a Google Maps link. You'll enter off Raven Rd. and proceed SLOWLY through the farm to reach the launch site.
