locked CFIS Rocket Club Launch Day Scheduled

Farr, Warren <farrw@...>
 

All,
The launch day for the Chagrin Falls Intermediate School rocket club has been set for Saturday 5/17. Each year about 50 kids from the CF 5th grade participate in rocket club after school. After two weeks of building and painting, they fly their built kits (usually Big/Baby Bertha or Nova Payloader on B engines) from 9 to noon on Saturday. Fifty kids, plus parents and siblings and three engines each makes for an exciting morning of flying.

In years past several of the MTMA club members have been exceptionally supportive of the launch activity with equipment, demo flights (warning - small field), and flight-line assistance. (The school does have a six-pad launch system.) This post is to give anyone interested in helping out a heads-up on the date. I will post during the prior week with directions and any additional information. Feel free to respond with any questions or comments -

Warren

locked Free rockets

Andrew Kleinhenz <mrandrewlk@...>
 

Hello MTMA-
 
Just to let you know, I will have some rockets (around 4) and some small motors etc.  They are free and first come first come first serve at the launch this Saturday. All are in pristine shape and ready to fly. I have one kit that I would like to have find a home. They are mostly 24mm motor mounts and designed to fly on 24mm reloads. I have two that run a C motors. Take them-fly them or simply part them out (although I doubt you will want to!). I find that after awhile I move on to other projects or I try new designs and concepts or classes of rockets. This leaves a number to sit in a closet collecting dust....I truly keep a few special ones but I like to pass others on so others can have fun with them. I also like giving them out...
 
So come get some goodies! (one per customer....unless nobody is taking anything...then take all you want).  Just please don’t let them go in the trash!!!
 
Andrew Kleinhenz.

Wow!  Thanks for sharing the pictures.  It is on my bucket list of places to visit, along with Houston.  It looks like you had a great time with your son.

Hello all!

Just got back from a family trip out to New Mexico.  Had to stop off at the missile park for a look see, enjoy!


locked "Andrew's Deal of the month"

Andrew Kleinhenz <mrandrewlk@...>
 

Hello folks!
 
Stuck inside on this cold and snowy weekend? Are you looking into trying out black powder two stage? Well...I got a deal for you!
 
What we have here are TWO rockets (see attached image). The built on on the left is an Estes – Long Tom two stage rocket. It is built, and balsa is primed. All you need is to paint it and attach a shock cord and you are in business. It runs on C motors. The kit on the right is an unopened Estes – Flight Commander two stage rocket. This kit rides on D motors, both can also fly as a single stage. The packs of motors you see are as follows: C6-0 : B6-0 : B6-4 : B6-6.
 
You see you pretty much have everything to try out two stage fun. I am looking for cash or trade...Ah...just make me an offer! I like money but I will also take what you may think is an even-steven trade. I also like AP hobby reloads or If you have an unopened Estes Pro-Series II – Ventris kit that would be just dandy! (I paid around $8 bucks for each pack of motors alone)...you get the idea. I would like to sell/trade as entire package but will consider trading individual items if I am in a good mood at the time .
 
First come first served. All sales final-void where prohibited. Offer not valid in Alaska, Hawaii, and other us territories.
 
Andrew Kleinhenz.

If anyone has any questions about the Wickliffe School gig, you can call me @ 440.725.0036.  I am the computer guy there but can't do it since I am a contractor and I have the work clause from my company.  I would be happy to give any addition information I can and assist in any non-pay related capacity.

I recently agreed to a rocket Display/Build/Launch at the City or Richfield's recreation facility. The
Display/Talk Build will be Thursday, July 17th with the launch that Friday. We did this for them last
year and it was a resounding success with no winds for launch day. All participants had a great time.
If you are interested in helping this year, let me know.

I've been approached by Wickliffe Middle School. They are looking to set up an after school rocketry
program from mid-September to Mid-December, Tuesday and Thursday afternoons at their school. The
program includes teaching about our hobby, directing the students in building and flying models. This
would be a paid position at $20/hr with an estimated class size of 10-15. Security requirement will
include fingerprinting and a background check. If you are interested in this position contact me for
more information at 216-529-0138 or on my cell 216-255-0200.

Chris,

We could swap out the bolts, but that still doesn't address the pad break-down and storage issue, or the fact that we seem to be set with the two pads we currently use. Might we grow and need more pads in the future? Sure, but I already store one pad in my garage that we don't use; I can't imagine what my wife might say if she sees that there is another.

I wonder if you could swap out the Allen head bolts for bolts with molded on or machined knobs?
