Reminder: MTMA Community Model Rocket and NRC Launch
10:00am to 5:00pm
(UTC-04:00) America/New York
This is a public model rocket launch to be conducted in accordance with the NAR Model Rocket Safety Code ( http://www.nar.org/safety-information/model-rocket-safety-code/ ) and MTMA launch procedures. Anyone is invited to attend. This is not a High Power launch.
There is a $5 per person fee for non-members. Children and young people of school age fly for free.
Non-members are limited to 10 N-s impulse maximum (C motor), no staging, and no clusters. All models are subject to a safety check prior to launch.
Prizes: We will be awarding kits for top NRC fliers in these three events: 1/4A Streamer Duration, A Parachute Duration, and A Helicopter Duration. Rules for these events are in the U.S. Model Rocket Sporting Code.
We will be raffling off a few more prizes too.
NRC info: In addition to the three events listed above, you can fly all NRC events, but you need to bring your own eggs and altimeters. Eggs and altimeters will be checked by the Contest Director.
In the event of poor flying conditions, the event will be canceled. There is no planned rain date. Monitor our message board at https://mtma.groups.io/g/public/topics for updates.
Launch starts at 10:00 am. Please arrive earlier rather than later. We will fly until 5:00 pm, or until everyone has had enough and goes home. If you arrive later in the day, you may find that we have already flown and packed up.
Safety info: Leave your shorts and sandals at home. Be prepared for the outdoors. You may be exposed to sun, heat, ticks, and a lot of walking. I'll repeat - ticks. Plenty of water, a snack, light-colored clothing, long pants, and sturdy shoes/boots are highly recommended.
