Tom, I want to go for my Level 1 so interested if somebody will be there to certify if we launch. I will bring a Loc 1V for an H engine and a couple of others that fly with the Apogee F10 which are neat with about an 8 sec burn time.
What type of launcher do you use as I need to know what to install in lug and/or rail button sizes.
I have been in and out of rocketry on several occasions since 1958 right after Sputnik. I started up again this past Dec. I am 78 yrs old this year and this will be my first launch since late 60s so not of much help now but will assist in the future.

Launch on March
24th! (need launch helpers):
have our first full launch of the year at Kentland,
scheduled for March 24th! Are you excited!
are you building and flying?!?
all here and tell us!.. or post it on facebook:
for our first spring launch, we need launch
volunteers to pull it off safely! We need folks to step up
and fill roles for:
a launch director - someone to
oversee the launch, call in the waiver, open & close the
RSO/LCO coverage - multiple
people to fill provide setup/breakdown and
roles are detailed here if you want to drill down: https://tinyurl.com/nrvr-duties
Please reply-all here if
you can pitch in (we'll skip the formality of a
doodle form and see if we get minimum coverage like
this). If you see no replies here.. it means the
launch is at risk of not having adequate coverage to pull
off safely and could get called off. I know we all
value the club, so please pitch in if you can. ;)
Event (need couple people):
called off the Salem Elementary outreach event, as we had
schedule conflicts. But another, cooler (and maybe
closer/easier) outreach opportunity has popped up.. and it
may even involve a free movie for those involved! :)
Tech has asked
up to come set up a rocket booth at their girls-STEM
"Hidden Figures" movie event on March 20th from
3-7pm. It sounds like a long time, but we would
only be running the table for like 45min before the movie,
and 45min after the movie. If you've never helped with
our static display tables, it's a lot fun!
would like to host our booth to attract more girls into
engineering and Aerospace.. Plus we'll also be getting
the word out about our club, and attracting science-minded
parents. Just the kind of folks we need to grow the
club. Right now it's just me and my ugly rockets
and Bob's showing up later.. But WE NEED SOME BIG and
COOL LOOKING rockets to show off! and if we play our cards
right, we might even get a tour of the VT Aerospace wind
tunnel (the kind used in the Hidden Figures Movie!).
to me if you can help out. Right now.. it's
looking pretty sparse.. and we could use a couple more
helpers (with cool rockets in tow!)
me know ASAP so I can let VT know!
