The Scout Special launch for Sunday 10/24 is SCRUBBED for weather.
The forecast reads "Rain. High near 59. East southeast wind 15 to 21 mph, with gusts as high as 29 mph.
Chance of precipitation is 100%. New precipitation amounts between a quarter and half of an inch possible."
That's about as definitive a NO GO as it gets....sorry, folks.
Hopefully we can fly in November.
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 D motors and approximately 1000 foot maximum altitude (or less depending on conditions at launch time).
We 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 2021-2022 NRC season (beginning 7/21/21) are:
We can support flying
most some of these. (probably not A PD or B Alt)...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.
I have NOT, at this time, put any of our 2021 launches on the official calendar for NRC events, so if you want to fly NRC events, I need to know at least a week in advance.
