We had a nice August launch at the north field of Sixty Acres Park in Redmond.
The winds were generally light and temperatures quite nice for August.
Stay tuned for status for the rest of the year.
As I understand it, the construction on Lot C at the Raceway has begun.
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 can 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-Boost Glider Duration
1/2A- Streamer Duration
B Payload Altitude-Altimeter
We can support flying most 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).
