Congrats to the Cardinal Gibbons High School TARC TEAM who on their last Certification Flight scored a 42.  This years target was 775 feet and to keep an Egg in the Air between 38 to 42 seconds.

The group hit an amazing 776 Feet and 53 Seconds (If I remember the time right).

And next…

Does anyone have any contacts for any personal who works at Homestead Air Force base? We are trying to find out if we can do some of our Launches there.   

Please email info@narbars.org if you you do.


Our next Launch at Vista View Park will be on Saturday April 8th, 2017 starting at 10:00 AM.

The weather this Saturday looks to be about perfect!
Sunny  77°F
Wind Speed: 9 mph NNE
Wind Gusts: 11 mph
Max. UV-Index: 10
                                                                                                     

Please note:  Requirements to be able to Fly at Vista View Park

You must be a NAR Member

Please enter your name in the Flight Form on the Right Side of the page.  If your name is not on the list, you will not be able to fly.  If you have already done this,  please enter it again just to make sure. The Form will tell you if you have already done so and you will not have to do it again.

 Also….

This Launch we are back to flying A through G Motors but no Multi-Stage or Cluster Rockets. And all Rockets and Motors must be inspected before you go out to the Pads.

We will also be asking for people to volunteer to be Spotters on the field.  We will change people around as the day goes on.

We are doing everything we can to stay in the good graces of the Park and the County.

The BARS Launch Crew get to the field at Vista View Park  at about 10:00 AM to setup the Tent, the Launch Equipment and Pads. Everyone is invited to help and it is very appreciated.

All NAR and Vista View Park Safety Rules are in EFFECT! Let’s have a SAFE DAY!

For all Launches, please remember to bring water, sun screen and head covering to protect you from the Sun. The South Florida Sun is very strong and even on a Cloudy Winter Day,  you will get fried! Chairs, small covered tents and tables are welcome as well.

Lastly, If you are looking for Motors and Custom Chutes locally, please contact Mike West at 561-862-7126 or email mvwest75@gmail.com   or  Nick Martin at  nmartinjr@me.com

Please Fill Out the Flight List =========================================>

Broward Area Rocketry is in need of a New Launch Field. What we are looking for is a LARGE Open Dry Field (no swamps) in Broward or Miami-Dade County. It needs to be at least a Square Mile or more.

Please email info@narbars.org if you have any possibilities. And if you know the owner, that would be even better.

Our next Launch at Vista View Park will be on Saturday March 11th, 2017 starting at 10:00 AM.

Partly sunny with thundershowers
84°F  Wind Speed: 7 mph SE   wind gusts: 11 mph max. UV-Index: 8             

The weather is looking good with some possible rain but we always seem to have a good day, wind, rain or not.

As some of you may be aware,  we had an incident at our February Launch that came very close to causing an injury.

After several communications with the Manager of Vista View Park and a lot of discussion between the members of the Broward Area Rocketry Launch Crew,  we present the following changes.

  1. You will notice a new and expanded Launch/Mailing List Entry Box on the top right hand side of the web site.  If you intend to be at our Launches, you must enter your Name and other information into it. If you already have joined our Mailing list, please re-enter all the information asked for and the list will update.  If your name is not on the list, you will not be able to Launch.  Vista View Park has to have a copy of this list on the Friday before each Launch.
  2. We will no longer Launch Multi-Stage or Cluster Rockets.
  3. All Rockets and Motors will be inspected before you go out to the Pads.
  4. At the March 11th Launch, our usable motors will be A through F.  We are holding off on G and H Flights for the time being. Level One Certifications are also on hold.

I know the above really puts a damper on things but we cannot have another Flight Incident.   We do plan to re-evaluate G and H Motor usage.

The Management of  Vista View Park is being extremely gracious to allow us to continue our use of the Field. 

And lastly, it is very obvious that we need a new Launch Field. Vista View Park simply has too many people in the Park while we do our Launches.   I am asking EVERYONE to help us look for another Field.  Honestly, a Field in Broward would be great but we are open to any Field available in Broward or Miami-Dade.  Please email BARS at info@narbars.org with any possibility.

Thank you all for your understanding.

The BARS Launch Crew.
Brian, Marc, Mike, Nick and Roy.
