Bauteile der Township-Flugagentur Mantua bauten wieder an unserem
Pionierhinterfliegenfeld für anders zusammen...

Oh, sorry, got so excited, I started channelling Werner von Braun...

<bg>

(the funny thing was how babelfish spit out Pioneer Trail! :)

The hard rocking rocket scientists of the Mantua Township Missile
Agency again assembled at our Pioneer Trail flying field for another
_spectacular_ launch!

Date: December 10, 2000
Location: Mantua Township, Portage County, NE Ohio
Conditions: Kinda crummy. Generally overcast with a 2500 foot
ceiling. 3-4 inches of snow, ~5 MPH wind
from the East, South, and Southwest.
Temps in the middle 30's.

In attendance were Mike Leffler, Larry Graceffo, David Waner, Craig
Lent, Joe Angelucci, Karen Patr(mumble, mumble, I can't read your last
name Karen!), yours truely, and... finally... <gasp> Stan MIkush!
NoHope's (Tripoli #3) Mike Fraley stopped by to watch.

Mark Recktenwald was up watching the Brownies again (did they win?),
and we're still missing Randy Miller, Chuck Straka, Tracy Laux, and
Bruce Levison. Bruce, darn it, I *know* yer out there! <g>

33 flights! From a low end of A, to a high end of I! We'll report by
flyer:

Highlight of the day was Dave Waners L1! Congratulations Dave!

Mike Leffler graciously dropped off Trigger[tm] at the launch site,
and thus was the first to arrive, *and* the first to get something up.
Mike's Estes Fat Boy went up on a C6-5 for a nice wind check. His PML
Small Endevour was up next on a G75-J medium delay. Mike's final
flight of the day (he skipped out to head over to the Tri-City
Skybusters meeting) was an incredibly "low, and slow" flight, his Fat
Boy again, on an _A8-3_. Too funny! Rocket was up, about 50 feet,
tailslide, and ejection. I think he could've landed it back on the
rod!

Stan Mikush's day started with a LOC Graduator on an F40-4 for a
perfect, albeit, quite "low powered" (for Stan) flight. Stan's our
diehard high power guy, and I don't believe I've ever seen him fly
anything less than a G! Stan's next flight was a LOC Stovi(?) on an
unreported, but definitely substantial, motor. Stan had been eyeing
his well flown LOC Magnum pretty much all day, but the Magnum went
back into the car unflown after his LOC Expeditor flight. The
Expeditor was prepped with an I195, countdown issued, and launch!
Even tho' the rod was angled to the southwest, the rocket took off
towards the southeast. Up, up, up, apogee, noseover, down, down,
down... No ejection, and the Expeditor core sampled in the field
across the road. Hopefully, Stan was at least able to dig out the
motor casing!

Larry Graceffo's first launch was an Estes AMRAAM on a C6-5 for a
perfectly nominal flight! His scratch "Sky Hog" left the pad with
authority on an E30-4 next. His Estes V-2 was off next on a D12-5 for
a heavily weathercocking flight to the west. Larry built a large
upscale AMRAAM, totally scratch (just by scaling up his smaller Estes
AMRAAM), and launched it next on a G38-4 for an arrow straight,
_beautiful_ flight! The obligatory MTMA Estes Sidewinder drag race
was conducted, with me, and Larry as the contestants. Larry, finally
understanding that in order to be a fully assimilated member of the
MTMA, built a beautiful Estes Sidewinder, and prepped the bird with a
C5-3 (or, so he sez.. :). Mine was prepped the same way, and I
utilized a single 18" Custom mylar 'chute for recovery. Countdown was
issued, and both models left the pad. I WAS IN THE LEAD!!! Sorry,
first time that's ever happened. I *really* thought I had this one,
but Larry's "Sidey" came up to full thrust, and _blew_ right past
mine. <sigh> I'm like Charlie Brown, and his kite when it comes to
these dragraces! <vbg> Larry put up a scratch "Delta" on an F50-6, and
his massive "Green Mamba" took off beautifully on twin G38-4's!

Dave Waner got moving with a LOC Aura on a G40. Beautiful launch, but
the sucker was _up there_, and was consequently sacrificed to the
Rocket Gods. Either that, or it's *still* up there! Dave's next
flight was his LOC IV L1 certification flight on an H128. Beautiful,
quick, *strong* boost, perfect ejection, and a "heavily wooded"
recovery. Dave's final flight of the day was his LOC Onyx on a G40
for another _way_ high flight... I think this one's in LEO too! <g>

Joe Angelucci came down from Cleveland to join us, and started things
off with a scratch build on a B6-2, with his scratch "Intrepid" left
the pad on a B6-2. Joe's humongo scratch "Flash" (imagine a 4.5 foot
Big Bertha) left next on a D12-3 for a major weathercocking flight to
the south. The 'chute stripped, and the rocket is now about 3"
shorter. That's the nice thing about those long ones... just trim
away the damaged section, and keep flying until you end up with a
stump! <bg>

Craig Lent put up quite a few that never returned to earth. His first
flight was a LOC Lil' Nuke, which I think was recovered. Next his
Estes Silver Comet was up on a D12-3, followed by his LOC Starburst
(donated by Barry Lynch :) on 2xD12-3's. Craig's Aura disappeared
(literally) on a G35. Craig finished the day up with his Estes AMRAAM
flying on a C6-7.

Karen (whateserface.. sorry ;)'s first, and only flight of the day was
a beautifully finished LOC Aura on a G35. Rocket left the pad in a
_major_ hurry, was said to deploy, but was lost by the spotters.

While out in the woods, on a rocket prospecting trip, Craig
unexpectedly found his Aura at the _far_ eastern end of the field,
perfectly unscathed. So that makes it 3 for the rocket gods!

I promised myself that I'd fly more BP at this launch, but I found my
hands constantly gravitating towards my 24/40, and 29/40-120 motor
boxes. <g> I started the day off with my Estes Python using D12-5 for
power. Perfect flight, and recovery. My trusty Estes Yellow Jacket
got some major air on a C6-5, using mylar streamer recovery. I gave
in to my AP addiction (do they make a "patch"?), and built a nice
little E11-5J for my 24/40, and into the Python it went. First
copperhead spit, but the second got 'er going on a trail of jet black
smoke. Bit of an arcing flight to the south, long coast over apogee,
and ejection. Upon retrieving the rocket, I noticed the NC was
missing, and somehow the upper "payload" section got bashed a bit,
apparently after contacting the fins. Dunno how it managed to
accomplish that. I wrote off the NC, as I figured finding a mostly
white NC in a snow covered field would be futile at best. Dave Waner
found it later, not too far from the pads! Cool! As mentioned above,
Larry, and I had the obligatory MTMA Sidewinder dragrace, and I
launched my trusty Estes Phoenix on an E28-4T. The rocket whistles
like a "bomb" on the way up when it flies on this reload. Very cool!
Built a petite D13-7W in the 18/20 case, and loaded up the Sidewinder.
Way cool, very high, "coning" flight to the west, and perfect recovery
(in the fresh patch of cow manure our landowner had just deposited on
the field ;). After being hounded by Stan ("Why don't you stick and H
in there Tod!?"), I built a G64-7W for my AT Strongarm. My son Ryan
had the pleasure of counting down, and hitting the button. Ignition,
and off she went! Big noise! Big flame! _Way_ up there (just
kissing the cloud deck). Perfect ejection, and the Strongarm drifted
to the edge of the northern woods. The rocket hung up about 15 feet
off the ground in a hedge tree, but was extracted without damage after
a few minutes.

Execellent bunch o' flights guys!

So ends the 2000 flying year for the Mantua Township Missile Agency!
Excellent season, with many memorable flights, many new faces, and
many new members!

But, don't dismay...

The 2001 season starts next month! Yes, I'm sure our intrepid band of
fliers (idiots?) will be dragging our butts out next month, in order
to tempt frostbite, endure wetness, cold, and snow, in order to fly
rockets!

I can't wait!

Hope to see everyone at our first annual MTMA Holiday
Party/Hoedown/Blowout/Farce, this Saturday at 7!

Oh yeah, any RMR'ers out there who find yerselves in NE Ohio on
Saturday night, please stop by the palatial "Hilty Compound" and have
a cup of Holiday Cheer!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to the MTMA, and *to* RMR from the
MTMA!

locked Sunday's Launch GO!

Tod Hilty
 

We're GO for Sunday all..

Checked the field out at about 4:30 this evening, and everything seems to be
frozen nicely. Please access the field by the same oil well road, and you
should encounter no trouble. The rangehead should be set up back by the
spiffy traffic cone covering the old gas well. People with 2wd may have
some trouble with the snow, as the Tracker (being extremely light) spun a
bit to get back on the road, but there's no mud. I'll bring a chain, and we
should have a few bodies around to help with the pushing in case anyone ends
up "disabled"...
<bg>

Range will be open from 10:30 to 3:30, and I should be out there about 10AM.
Forecast is slightly warmer than today, cloudy, with rain in the afternoon,
so please dress accordingly. There's still about 3-4 inches of snow on the
field, so waterproof boots will probably be nice. Also, during recovery,
watch your step, as many of the furrows in the field are nicely covered over
by snow.

Graciously, Mike Leffler will be delivering Trigger, and I'll be bringing a
nice and warm, freshly charged battery, so our model, and mid-power GSE
worries are over. HPR will be dependant on Stan, and (hopefully) Randy.
NOTAM has been filed, so we will be flying under LMR rules, unless Stan
notifies us of an activated HPR waiver.

If any of you who are after deer can get there just after sunrise, you
should be able to bag one, as there are bazillions of tracks from the deer
grazing the corn on the ground... <bg>

Anyway, hope to see you all there!

Tod


locked Sunday Launch/Christmas Party

Tod Hilty
 

Hi all.. quick update..

Just recieved email from Mike Leffler, and Mark Recktenwald, and Trigger
*will* be making an appearance tomorrow. This should cover our model/mid
power GSE requirements. If Stan comes out, our HPR GSE should be covered too.

I will post again, late this afternoon, regarding the final status of the
launch. At this point, it doesn't look like we'll be in for any major
thawing today, so things should be fine tomorrow morning. Range will be
open from 10:30AM to 3:30PM, with LMR rules in effect. HPR will be allowed
pending activation of the waiver via Stan.

In other news...

PARTY!

Don't forget, the MTMA holiday party will take place next Saturday, at my
house, from 7PM to 11PM (or whenever we get done yakking). I'll be posting
a couple of links to the group WRT directions to my house. If y'all are
familiar with the Pioneer Road field, I'm only about 3 miles further to the
east. Getting to the field is 9/10 of the battle.

Several requests...

LAUNCH VIDEOS! We need to watch a few! Anyone who has (for whatever
reason) chronicled the MTMA, bring the tapes... Should be good for plenty of
laughs! I know Stan has a bunch of LDRS videos, so if you come over Stan
(which I hope you will), be sure to throw those in the car!

If anyone would like to bring additional food they are more than welcome to.
Cheese/Crackers, chips, pretzels, etc. will be fine, as we will have plenty
of food to begin with. The Hilty household is usually a little light on
diet pop, and *real* booze, so if there are scotch drinkers out there,
you'll have to bring your own (I *do* have half a fifth of gin, and tequilla
available as a reserve... Also, I think there may be some Rumpleminz, and
Jagermeister hiding around here somewhere too.. :).

We'll also have a "box 'o wine" for those of you who would like to partake
of the grape...

I'll have good ol' standard Genesee, and Genesee Light, and a couple, or ten
sixpacks of _good_ German Bock's, Marzens, and Pilsners for those of us who
are after the calories... Plus, I think our resident Braumeister, Mr.
Recktenwald, may stick a few of his own in the batch too! Also, we'll have
plenty of normal caffene laced pop to really get the young'uns torqued..

I'll be barbequeing chicken wings (sorta hottish buffalo wings), and we'll
have boiled shrimp, cookies, and candy out the wazoo, and other standard
holiday fare...

Hope to see y'all tomorrow, and at the party. Remember to check your email
tonight regarding the final status of tomorrow's launch!

Later!

Tod


locked Sunday's Launch

Tod Hilty
 

Hi all...

It looks like we'll go ahead, and try and fly on Sunday.

The weather report for the weekend has improved slightly, with it now
indicating that we shouldn't have rain on Sunday. My biggest concern, at
this point, is the fact that temperatures will be moving above freezing,
starting today, all through the weekend. We've currently got about 5" of
snow on the ground, and if enough of that melts, the field conditions at
Pioneer Trail will be horrid. I'm going to go ahead, and get a NOTAM filed
for Sunday, and I'll check the field condition on Saturday afternoon. If it
looks too muddy at that point, I'll scrub the launch Saturday night.
Please, please, please check your email Saturday night, and Sunday morning
before leaving, as I will post a "go, no-go" message regardless of the
status of the field.

If the durn ground would've just stayed frozen, we'd be in fine shape!

Also, it appears that we will have a shortage of GSE. Trigger will not be
making an appearance at this launch. I'll tear my launcher apart again this
weekend, and try to figure out what its problem is. If I get it working,
I'll bring it, but I make no guarantees! <g> At this point, we need all
types of GSE for Sunday (model, mid, and high power).

I'll keep y'all posted with any additional details...

Tod

I can't make it to this one unfortunately....

I got tied up on Monday so I wasn't able to pick up Trigger from Mark's
house. This weekend is Christmas preparation time so I'll need to hang with
the family.

I just spent Tuesday/Wednesday in NYC. Shortly after we arrived in the city
we found out the the windshield to the company plane shattered on their
return trip so we ended up renting a car and driving back yesterday. SHEESH!

Have fun but you'll have to bring your own GSE.

Granted, our Estes crap is no longer American made, but it is nicely

the Flakes in Colorado! They aren't all in California, you see, just
"most of them."

So I got the entire post to be on topic!

I *just* remembered that we have a launch scheduled for the 10th! I

Do I have any takers? Weather's supposed to be moderating on Sunday,
with
temps up toward 40. The only potential problem I forsee is the field
condition if the temperature gets high enough for the ground to thaw.
Dunno

Give me a quicky headcount for Sunday, and if the numbers are there,
I'll

I'll be freezing my behind watching the Breveland Clowns!

OK, free beer on the 16th to the first person that can tell me the artist,
and the title!

<vbg>

I *just* remembered that we have a launch scheduled for the 10th! I
haven't
contacted Mr. Carlton, but I wouldn't expect any problems getting
permission.

Do I have any takers? Weather's supposed to be moderating on Sunday, with
temps up toward 40. The only potential problem I forsee is the field
condition if the temperature gets high enough for the ground to thaw.
Dunno
what it's like in you guys' territory, but when the ground thawed over
last
weekend, we had quite a bit of mud.

Give me a quicky headcount for Sunday, and if the numbers are there, I'll
get everything cleared...

Later!

"M",

Excellent launch report! Wish I could have been there but I was paged just
as I was leaving and had to go into to work, what a bummer! Hope to make
it out to the next launch.
