Hey All!
So we're still shut out of Kentland, but I have reached out to an old NRVR friend.. the owner of Sinkland Farms down in Riner off Hwy8.. and she is SUPER excited to have us come fly with her again in September and possibly October! 
[ https://sinklandfarms.com/ ]( https://sinklandfarms.com/ ) 
We'll be positioned on the back hill.. See calendar for GPS coords.
Note: This is a Low/Medium power (class-1) rocket launch. There's no FAA waiver, and all launches are restricted to 125grams of propellant (up thru most G motors) and 1500grams (3.3lb) rocket weights (on the pad).  So NO BIG or HP will be allowed.  We will provide standard low power pads and 1010 rails (may have  mini/micro rails too I think).
Launch details are on our website and calendar here:

If you've never been to the Sinkland Farms Pumpkin Festival, it's a TON of fun.. Bring your whole family to browse pumpkins, kettle cord, live music, petting zoo, meat on a stick, ice cream.. they have it all.
Group Motor Order Thru THIS FRIDAY:
If anyone wants in.. I've started a group order to get myself a few G motors at Chris Rocketry Supplies ( [ csrocketry.com/rocket-motors.html ]( https://csrocketry.com/rocket-motors.html ) ).. You have through THIS FRIDAY (@5pm) to place your order, and indicate in the shipping instructions "Add to Tweeks/NRVR shipment" and they will split the $50-60 hasmat/shipping costs between all of us (the more who order the cheaper it is). A good way to save a few bucks. But DO NOT WAIT.. After Friday, Chris will ship them to my house and you're on your own.  I'll split out the motor orders and hand them out at the launch.
I'll leave the RSO limits to Bob.. but if he doesn't weigh in.. I'll say we want to keep most rocket flights under say 1500-2000ft.. and we're not sure about sparky motors yet.. so have various motor options on hand.  I think we also get free parking/admission to the farm.. but I'll check on that.
Any questions?
