We are SCRUBBED for Saturday.
Currently the forecast says "Showers likely. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 64. Light and variable wind becoming southwest 6 to 11 mph in the afternoon. Chance of precipitation is 70%. New precipitation amounts of less than a tenth of an inch possible."
I will continue to watch the weather and update here if things get better. Otherwise - hopefully we'll have better luck on October 20th.
BEMRC launches are on the second or third Saturday of the month (see dates listed below)
The range typically opens at about 11 AM.
Launches are limited to G motors and approximately 1500 foot maximum altitude (or less depending on conditions at launch time).
We will be prepared to support National Rocketry Competition flights beginning with the February launch. I will have an adjustable tower (the Apogee unit) and NAR contest flight cards available. Those flying duration events will need to arrange for timers. Loaner PerfectFlite FireFly altimeters can be made available for those flying Payload Altitude or Eggloft Altitude if arranged for in advance.
NOTE: The events for the 2018-2019 NRC season are:
B Eggloft Duration
C Egg Altitude-Altimeter
We can support flying some of these at our launches....let me know a day or two in advance if you would like to make an official NRC flight at any of our remaining 2018 launches.
