locked Chagrin Falls 5th Grade Club Launch

Mike Nowak
 

​Guys,

It is once again time for the Chagrin Falls 5th grade rocket club launch. Every year about 30 5th graders work after school for two weeks to build Estes rockets for a Saturday launch. With three motors each, we normally get 80+ launches starting at 9a. I usually arrive 40 minutes early to set up a perimeter, the 6-pad launcher, and gear. The kids have a great time. Many of them launching rockets for the first time.


The field is small (behind the Middle School, which is on the High School property on East Washington Street just outside of Chagrin Falls). The weather is supposed to be spectacular. As always, I appreciate any help that anyone is willing to lend. There is plenty to manage: kids in line, kids at the pad, kids loading rockets, etc... This year, both of my adult children are out of town. In years past, there have been demonstration flights, but low and slow is the name of the game.


If anyone would like additional details, please contact me via email: farrw@...

The flip side of that is the traffic crossing the runway when recovering models that are launched from the pavilion area.

It is easier to tell people to walk around the runway when going up to the pads than to remind them on every flight.

I will be there to help setup. If we need to put the gear in my car to get it to the launch pad area then that's what we do.

I think this will be the only launch where we need to worry about it.

The Flying Aces RC Club has put down a new runway. the surface is still a little loose. 

A request was made to make sure that we use the rocket pad area to keep foot traffic on the runway to a minimum. 

So please setup the equipment on the rocket pad area. Also unless a model lands on the runway please do not walk on the runway.

This request is only a temporary restriction until the runway is compleyely settled and tight. About 2 to 4 weeks should do it.

Thank you all.

Thanks, Bob.  We will do our best to deal with the new runway.  Given the winds coming out of the North, setting up close to the parking lot and runway is a bad idea anyway.  We'll work things out.

We had our first launch of 2017 yesterday afternoon. Flying conditions were exceptional. All that attended had a great time. A variety of flights were made, with motors ranging from 1/2A to F and several multi stage and cluster flights. If you have any photos, please feel free to post them. Let's hope that this is the first of many great flying days. The next scheduled launch is May 13.

locked Launch Updates

Michael Nowak
 

Unfortunately, March weather was not favorable for flying.  Up to now, we have relied on this Yahoo group for last minute updates.  In order to allow up to the minute updates in a timely manner, we will be doing things differently this year.


There will be updates on our Facebook page and website, www.mtmarocketry.org


There will be  updates on Twitter, www.twitter.com/mtmarocketry or @MTMARocketry


If you are not into social media, we will also send out a group text alert.  If you want to receive a text alert regarding launch status, please text your name to 216 337-9537 and you will be included.


This requires a bit more effort from the MTMA officers but should provide more accurate, up to date information regarding club launches.
