  June 9th and 10th, 2018, launch report
Posted by: mpleban - 06-13-2018, 06:25 PM - Forum: Launches - No Replies

WE had a couple great days for flying. There was a decent turn out for this weekend. More people than I was expecting.  Saturday was high clouds and little or no wind, we were flying almost straight up and down all day. Sunday started out the same as Saturday,high clouds and little wind., but around 11 or 11:30 the sun came out and the wind picked up.
        We had a few TARC teams show up to do some practice flights, they were  Buffalo Science Academy, Southside, and International school 45.
         The object for their flights was to use a F36 motor and send and return three eggs from an altitude of 856 feet. The eggs were to be under two chutes and stay in the air as long as possible, and remain intact.
          We also had a Level 2 Cert. Flight by Chris Conley, he flew his "Dawn of Victory " on a J350 w. It landed by the wind sock on tne other end of the field. Congrats to Chris on obtaining  his L2 Cert.
          There were two flights that were scrubbed, David Halloway with his "Python" on a D15-4, and the Buffalo Science  Academy with their "Sacred Banana" on a F36. Both flights were pulled when their igniters failed to light the motors.
          Evan Brown did not disappoint us with a spectacular CATO with his Estes "Solar Warrior" on a E30-4,. Such great workmanship he puts into his rockets. We feel your loss.
       
         I'm going to try a different format that Bill sujested, we'll  see how that works out.

          Launch Report    NSL 2018 (part 1)



    May 26th, 2018. 9:15am. Saturday. As I came up on the field, the first thing I noticed was ‘look at all those vehicles’. A impressive site for that field.
    This weekend the weather was very corapited, we had high grey clouds some light and some dark colored. There was a low to moderate winds through the days. And the Sun finally made a full appearance later on Sunday and most of Monday.
    On Sunday night we had our 3rd annual night launch we put up somewhere between 45 and 60 flights. (The flight cards got mixed up).
    The club had on loan to us from NAR, low power pads. The Syracuse Rocket Club brought a bunch of high powered pads for us to use. And with our pads we were able to fly, I believe, 76 pads. In 2 banks, a left  an and a right bank. 25 low powered pads, 7 mid powered pads. And the rest were high powered, which 2 were L and M.and 1 that was for N powered rockets
The high powered pads were in almost constant use. Once we got our footing there was a couple rockets in the air at any given time.


Now we come to the breakdown of flights per day.
I'm not going to list every motor that was flown by sub headings, so I will list them according to family groups.

I'm getting out of rocketry, especially HP, at least for now. I have posted a list on the MARS Face book page. You can check it out there. I hope it shows up OK, I admit to having my problems with Face book!

The National Warplane museum had to change the date for the Chicken Dinner to September 30th. Adult dinners are $10 and Children's $6. Please support the National Warplane Museum.Please don't forget the pot luck dinner next month is surf or turf. Please order a head of time so we can get a head count! We are going to have a campfire as usual after dinner. Dinner will include coleslaw, stake or lobster, corn on the cob, baked potato with all the fixings,desert and a soda or water, for just $15.00 what a deal!
Plan on talking and planning NSL next year, so bring some ideas of logo's, competitions and other key items to make this the most successful NSL to date.

We look forward in seeing everyone's ideas!

Thank you,
MaryBeth Clune
