I will be there looking to join up.  Would anyone care to list the launch equipment available for members?

Cool! my TARC team needs to fly a test or two and I need to pay my club fee.  See you guys around 11!

Bill,

As a general rule, the club sets up four small pads (three 1/8" rods and one 3/16" rod)  and one big pad (changeable 1/4" rod and 1010 rail).

The Aurora field only supports rocket launches under the Model Rocket Safety Code (up to G motor).

Our launch system was made by Dog House Rocketry (prior to their sale to Binder Design). It is a 12-volt relay system that is "continuity-check safe" for low current igniters. The system consists of a central controller (positioned at the LCO table) that connects to up to three launch heads at each "cluster" of pads. Each launch head has four independent leads. Continuity can be checked by the rocketeer at the pad and/or by the LCO.

Chagrin Falls Intermediate School - Fifth Grade Rocketry Program (May 18, 2019)

Mark Recktenwald
 

The 5th Graders at Chagrin Falls Intermediate School will be holding their annual launch next Saturday, May 18 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 using the school's six-position "saw horse" launch stand and controller (built by Warren Farr). The two science teachers who run this program have been doing so for over 10 years.

I have been helping Warren and the science teachers 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.

This launch is GO unless the winds violate the Safety Code, there is torrential rain, or thunderstorms.

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

Go for Launch: Chagrin Falls Intermediate School - 5th Grade Rocketry Program #go

Mark Recktenwald
 

We are “Go for Launch” with the 5th Graders from Chagrin Falls Intermediate School. The launch will take place tomorrow, Saturday, May 18 at 9:00 am, in the field behind the Chagrin Falls High School at 400 E Washington St, Chagrin Falls, OH, 44022.

About 50 students will each launch their small model rocket up to three times. Past launches have generally been wrapped up in about two hours.

We will set up at the field at 8:30 am using the school's six-position "saw horse" launch stand and controller. I would appreciate assistance from club members. Anyone who helps is encouraged to launch 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.

Yes, you may join us to fly.  No, we still don't offer online membership - look for it sometime later this year.  Prospective new MTMA members who can show NAR membership get their MTMA membership fee waived.

Current field conditions:  wet everywhere, and muddy where a lot of people walk around.  Boots and long pants are strongly advised.  Leave the shorts and sandals at home.

It was terrific to finally make it to a TARC event. Especially to help celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Apollo 11.
It was great to meet Mike Nowak at the event and talk rocketry :-)

Reminder that this weekend's launch is ONLY for NAR members who are MTMA members in good standing.  Plus you have to bring your own gear. 

Both days are forecast for rain.  Going to be a little breezy Saturday too.  That's enough for me to postpone my involvement for another weekend.  I am not hauling the gear out there and setting it up this weekend.  Any die-hards out there who are both a NAR member and a MTMA member in good standing, have at it.

Monday is NOT a reserved day for rocket flights. If you wish to fly on Monday, you MUST be a club member and a NAR member, and you must cooperate with any members of the Flying Aces who may wish to fly their RC aircraft as well.
