The clean up crew was spectacular and the trailer is pack well.

 Owen Torres achieved his level 1 with a rocket called BOB. His flight was on a H110 cti.
Dan MacNeal achieved his level 2 with a rocket called Binger Design by Exall kit. His flight was on a J270 w.
congratulations on the flights.
Don't forget to purchase your LOBSTER or STEAK potluck dinner for September 16. You can purchase them at Amwprox.com.
They only cost 15 dollars for a full meal. And afterwards we will have a campfire. If you have not been to one yet, it is alot of fun. I really enjoy myself there

Posted by: mbclune - 07-10-2017, 07:23 PM - Forum: Club Events - No Replies

Hi everyone, the pot luck dinners have been such a huge hit we've decided to do a surf and turf dinner on September 16, 2017. AMW will bring the fresh lobsters right from Massachusetts hours out of the ocean can't get fresher than that, unless you go to the ocean! Yummy!!!!!Sunday afternoon is the National Warplane Museum's chicken barbecue,so mark your calendars. We will have a price in a week or so for the Saturday night dinner which you'll have to prepay so we can get a head count. There will be a place on the website to pay by PayPal.
Thanks !

This weekend proved to have plenty of sun on both days. Unfortunately  the winds on Saturday keaped a lot of high flights to about 1500 feet initially. Later we were able go higher. We still had winds on Sunday but high power flights were  not limited 
on Saturday, we had three TARC teams show up to fly, Buffalo Science Academy, International School for the Arts, and Southside 93. We were also expecting four Scout troops to show up,but only two arrived. Troop 677 from Cattaraugus, and their sister troops from Angelica.
 The pot luck dinner on Saturday night was great fun, you should think about sticking around and enjoy the company. And bring a dish to share.
Now the stats.

We had no cert flights this weekend.

Hopefully that covers everthing.

We had a fantastic weekend. Hardly any wind cool temperatures, and clouds. But as Saturday and Sunday  progressed, the clouds left and we were able to shoot to the waiver.Monday started with rain, then stopped around 10am. We had a mix of sun and rain for the rest of the day.
 Saturday we had our second annual night launch, Im happy to say we had 33 night launches. A great improvement over last years.
we had many different lighting schemes. I cannot chose which was my favorite, but they all look great to me.
 Sunday night we had our pot luck dinner, it was alot of fun, everyone who stayed enjoyed themselves greatly. I am looking foward to the next one.
 on  Saturday we had two cert. flights, and on Sunday we had three cert. flights. So five total.

Saturday day, we had 300 launches, and at night 33 launches.
Sunday, we had 199 launches.
and on Monday we had 43 launches.

Of course  we had some failures, some AP motors deciding to burn through the tops. Some CATOS on the pads and just after liftoff.
I seem to recall we also had two premature ignitions of the main charges while being armed on the pads. Thankfully No one was hurt.

okay here we go,.

level 1 cert flights.

Jason Kimmel flew a estes Ventris on a H118
Daniel Mingiat flew a Black Brant ii on a H148
Stephan Rea flew a Non-Spotted Madcow on a I255
Saad Mirza flew a Loc iv on a H100

Level 2 cert flight,

Eric Roth flew a Icarus iii on a J270

Hi All.
I'm working on a side project (nothing for NAR rockets), that I've come to a fork in the road.  If anyone can give me their thoughts on the matter, I'd appreciate their views.  I have not determined what approach I want to take to get to the same outcome.  One vs the other, is my dilemma. Both have vibration, and cost issues.  Should I use a gimbaled system, or a strap down?
