We had a small but fun group of people out for the June 2016 club launch. Miles, Terry and Andrew all flew some very nice large rockets. We shut it down a little early due to the extreme heat but plenty of money was converted to smoke prior to that. Thank you to all the new visitors we had out, we did a few rent-a-rocs and I hope everyone had a good time.
In recent weeks, we've been holding some members-only launches during the week for some quieter times with just a few people. While we love hosting the regular monthly launches, these members-only launches are a more intimate affair, with more time to chat and learn about each other's interests. These launches have seen fewer than 10 people show up, but we did have a successful certification by club member Grant Midbrod! Grant's Level 1 certification went perfectly on his modified Estes PSII Leviathan, called "Squiggles" with a 29mm Reload CTI H163 adjusted to 9 sec delay. He glassed the tube with 3oz cloth, made different fins, filled the nosecone with 2lb polyurethane foam mix. Congratulations Grant!
We also saw James prepping for upcoming NARAM 58 competition in G Streamer Duration (that was a cool flight on a G25-10), plastic model conversion, A powered helicopter duration, and D rocket glider duration. And we had high power flights by Miles, Randy, and Brett, including Brett's Can't Fly 55 on an L motor!
We plan to have more of these members-only launches coming up, including some on weekends!
