locked Launch for tomorrow, June 23rd POSTPONED.

I know I sound like a broken record, but yet again Mother Nature will rain on our parade...er...launch. The forecast is calling for thunderstorms tonight and tomorrow, with a lesser chance of spotty showers on Sunday the 24th, so we will tentatively postpone until then. Please keep an eye out here for go/no-go updates.

When I finally can make it to a launch, what is the annual club launch fee?

Since Mother Nature is NOT a rocketeer, she has decided to wash out yet another launch for us this year. This weekend’s launch is scrubbed due to rain. Please stay tuned for info regarding our next upcoming launch.

Due to scheduling conflicts, the regular club model rocket launch scheduled for tomorrow is being changed to a "BYOG" (Bring Your Own Equipment) launch. 

If you are a club member AND a NAR member, you are welcome to set up and fly at the field between the hours of 12:00pm and 4:00pm. All club and NAR safety rules are in effect during this launch.

This is a very challenging kit, requiring a lot of patience to build.  But it is a beautiful kit when done.  It's worth the $50.  The ESTES Saturn V is also a very nice kit, for a few more dollars.

As Warren Farr mentioned in a post last week, the 5th Grade Rocket Club at Chagrin Falls Intermediate School will be holding their annual launch this Saturday, May 19 at 9:00 am. The launch will take place in the field behind the Chagrin Falls High School at 400 E Washington St, Chagrin Falls, OH, 44022.

We will set up at the field at 8:30 am. Warren assembled a very nice six-position "saw horse" launch stand for the two science teachers who run this program. I have been helping Warren with this launch for a number of years, and several club members have stopped out to help and fly some larger demo rockets. The field is small, so low-flying rockets are best. The students have enjoyed "barely-enough powered" mid-power rockets and E-, F-, or G-powered saucers in the past.

There will be about 50 students and each has the opportunity to fly their A- or B-powered rocket (mostly Baby Berthas and Wizards) three times. Build quality, rocket-eating trees, the random C-motor, and sports schedules generally limit the re-flights for many of the students. Past launches have generally been wrapped up in about two hours.

I know we all have been itching to fly since the weather has been uncooperative, and this launch is GO unless the winds violate the Safety Code, their is torrential rain, or thunderstorms. According to the latest forecast, the odds are in our favor!

Please consider spending a couple hours this Saturday morning paying forward.

I am headed up with CG to cover it for the Rocketry Show, Vern will be speaking at the banquet on Saturday and we understand he will be dropping some little know history!  We are very excited to have a chance to be there for that!!  I don’t think I’ll be flying anything, but it will be great to be there.

Apparently, our pleas to the weather gods have fallen on deaf ears, and Jobu has once again forsaken us. Thus, we are calling off the launch scheduled for this coming weekend for BOTh Saturday, and the make-up launch on Sunday. the forecast for both days is rain and thunderstorms.

If anyone has any pull with DARPA, maybe they could get HAARP running and send some nice weekends our way. 

Next launch will be the 26th.

Farr, Warren III W.
 

​All,

On Saturday 5/19 will be the annual launch of the Chagrin Falls Intermediate School (5th graders) Rocket Club. Each year, the 5th grade science class is given the opportunity to participate in rocket club where each student builds and flies a "B" class model rocket (typically Baby Bertha or Wizard/streamer).


Setup at 8:30a, launch begins at 9a. The filed is behind the Chagrin Falls High School on East Washington Street. We have about 50 kids launching three times from a six pad launching system. There are lots of drag races!


Help is most welcome. Managing that many kids and flights safely is our first priority. Demonstration flights are welcome (be aware, the field is small, so saucers are king). Email me with any questions: warren3@....


Thanks! Warren
