Did we skip a week? I missed the last launch (health issues) but by my reckoning, the next one should have been tomorrow, October 6th.

Just wondering if we should drive out. :)

Wolfram v.Kiparski
 

MTMA model rocket launch is on for tomorrow.  We have a forecast for sunny skies and a calm breeze out of the northeast (away from the tree line).  Set up is sometime between 2:30 and 3:00 pm.  Launch begins at 3:00 pm, and goes until dusk or until everyone has had enough.  There will be a break before starting our annual Night Launch.  

If anyone plans on flying E Dual Eggloft altitude or C single eggloft altitude, please let me know right now. 

If you do not let me know if you wish to fly these events, I may not have eggs for you.  Altitude will be measured by altimeter, so you need to bring your own altimeter and the means to read data from the altimeter.

Stay tuned for a separate night launch announcement.

It has been a long time since we last talked.  I have a bunch of model rocket stuff – rockets and motors from our scout days.  The motors have been in a hermetically sealed ammo can for a few years.  Would you guys be interested in them or should I just safely dispose of them?
