Current Launch Status:

9/14/19 6:15 PM

We had a nice launch with a group of enthusiastic Girl Scouts Saturday.

 

Here is hoping the weather for October 19th is as pleasant.


Construction at Lot C at the Raceway has begun. We have effectively lost access to that site.


BEMRC Launch Schedule

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
D motors and approximately 1000 foot maximum altitude (or less depending on conditions at launch time).

We can MAY be able to support National Rocketry Competition flights at our regular club launches. I can 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 1/2A Altitude if arranged for in advance.

The events for the 2019-2020 NRC season are: 

1/2A-Parachute Duration
1/2A-Helicopter Duration
1/2A-Boost Glider Duration
1/2A- Streamer Duration
B Payload Altitude-Altimeter
1/2A Altitude-Altimeter

We can support flying most some of these at our launches....please let me know a day or two in advance if you would like to make an official NRC flight at any of our launches (except July).
