We've been monitoring the weather forecast for this weekend and sadly, it continues to deteriorate. Right now we're looking at an increasing chance of rain through the morning and into the afternoon, along with increasing winds, which are now forecast to be gusting up to as much as 21 MPH. 

Even with the larger field, these winds, coupled with the rain possibility has led us to make the decision to SCRUB this weekend's launch.

We regret this, as we were hoping to let everyone experience flying at the new field, but that's the way Ohio weather goes.

Stay tuned for more updates to future launches.

The forecast is deteriorating.  Gusts up to 20 mph are predicted, which is no fun at all.  Standby for a likely cancellation.

Re: MTMA model rocket and NRC launch is NOGO #nogo

Wolfram v.Kiparski
 

There is an increasing chance for rain in the afternoon so we'll just go until it starts to look like rain, or we decide to pack up.  Show up early and check out the new field!

MTMA model rocket and NRC launch is NOGO #nogo

Wolfram v.Kiparski
 

We are go for launch this weekend.  This is our first club launch at the new field.  Weather conditions will be very good for flying.  We start at 10:00.  We fly until we feel like we've had enough.

There is a mandatory fee of $5.00 charged by the airport.  Please bring exact change.  If you do not bring exact change you may have to go find a local retail or banking establishment to get exact change.

Re: IMPORTANT CLUB ANNOUNCEMENT

Edward Root
 

Jeff,

Thanks for your reply. I'll  probably join MTMA next year but just be a guest for this launch. I haven't received my NRA card yet (joined 5 weeks ago but they say it takes 6 to get it) but I will bring my joining email and my account printout with my membership number.

Looking forward  to my first launch in about 45 years.

Thanks - Ed

Hi Ed,

You are welcome to launch with us on Saturday with the following caveats:

We will need verification of your NAR membership, so please bring your card.
You will NOT be covered under the club's NAR insurance, but will be covered by your own as a NAR member.
We charge a $5 per day launch fee for non-MTMA members to launch with us. The owners of the field we are launching from on Saturday likewise charge a $5 fee to launch which applies to MTMA members as well as Non-MTMA guests. Thus, you will need to pay a $10 fee to launch with us this Saturday.

We are in the process of adapting our current policies and club practices to some revised versions and new rules, including guest flying and membership requirements. Most of these new policies and procedures will be put in place beginning in 2020. 

When you arrive, simply find myself or another club officer and we can get you all taken care of. 

Thanks,

Jeff

Greetings,

Many of you are aware that the MTMA is constantly on the lookout for new fields which would enable us to launch high-power rockets. Well, to put it simply, we're still looking.

However, we have recently been presented with the opportunity to have a secondary launch field at our disposal. Due to the NAR safety regulations this field is just slightly too small to allow full-on high-power flights, but it IS much more able to handle model and mid-power flights than our existing field in Aurora (Harmon Field).

The field in question is Barber Airport, located near Alliance, Ohio. It's about 28 miles Southeast of our current field. Being a privately owned and working airport, it is MUCH more open and accessible and it is constantly well-mowed with no high weeds to trudge through on our way to recover our rockets. It's currently also the home of the Alliance Balsa Bees R/C Airplane Club.

The MTMA has secured permission from the owners to conduct club launches there. We will begin with our next launch, on Saturday, October 26th. This launch was originally scheduled to be a bring-your-own gear launch, but we will be conducting it as a regular club launch instead. The other club officers and I went out in-between our club launches and had an informal launch there to get a better idea of how well the field would suit the club's needs and we believe it will benefit us.

We want to let you know that WE ARE NOT ABANDONING HARMON FIELD. We simply will be making use of Barber Airport as an alternate. We will be working dates into next year's schedule so that we have a number of our club launches there.

One caveat of the new field is that the owners assess a $5 per member per launch day fee to cover the upkeep of the field and keep the grass cut. This fee will be applicable to any person who comes out to fly. We believe that this is a reasonable fee and that for the ease of recovery the well-cut grass provides, that it should not be prohibitive to any member.

So, we would like to invite you out to the launch on October 26th at Barber Airport, 13754 Union Ave NE, Alliance, OH 44601. See the attached image for info on parking etc.

Please email me directly with any questions you may have and I will do my best to answer them for you.

The launch will be conducted in accordance with the NAR Model Rocket Safety Code ( http://www.nar.org/safety-information/model-rocket-safety-code/ ). G-impulse max.  No high power.  The field does not support high power as per the NAR High Power Safety Code.

Stay tuned for last minute updates.

We fly until everyone has had enough, or 6:00 pm, whichever happens first.

There may be parking in the field, but we need to establish a spot.  This is an active airport, so do not drive out into the field unless you receive instructions from a club officer.  You might drive out onto a runway!

We want to let you know that WE ARE NOT ABANDONING HARMON FIELD. We simply will be making use of Barber Airport as an alternate. We will be working dates into next year's schedule so that we have a number of our club launches there.

One caveat of the new field is that the owners assess a $5 per member per launch day fee to cover the upkeep of the field and keep the grass cut. This fee will be applicable to any person who comes out to fly. We believe that this is a reasonable fee and that for the ease of recovery the well-cut grass provides, that it should not be prohibitive to any member.

So, we would like to invite you out to the launch on October 26th at Barber Airport, 13754 Union Ave NE, Alliance, OH 44601. See the attached image for info on parking etc.

Please email me directly with any questions you may have and I will do my best to answer them for you.

Thanks,

Jeff

Greetings,

Many of you are aware that the MTMA is constantly on the lookout for new fields which would enable us to launch high-power rockets. Well, to put it simply, we're still looking.

However, we have recently been presented with the opportunity to have a secondary launch field at our disposal. Due to the NAR safety regulations this field is just slightly too small to allow full-on high-power flights, but it IS much more able to handle model and mid-power flights than our existing field in Aurora (Harmon Field).

The field in question is Barber Airport, located near Alliance, Ohio. It's about 28 miles Southeast of our current field. Being a privately owned and working airport, it is MUCH more open and accessible and it is constantly well-mowed with no high weeds to trudge through on our way to recover our rockets. It's currently also the home of the Alliance Balsa Bees R/C Airplane Club.

The MTMA has secured permission from the owners to conduct club launches there. We will begin with our next launch, on Saturday, October 26th. This launch was originally scheduled to be a bring-your-own gear launch, but we will be conducting it as a regular club launch instead. The other club officers and I went out in-between our club launches and had an informal launch there to get a better idea of how well the field would suit the club's needs and we believe it will benefit us.
