Hello to all of our flyers, spectators, and friends!

We are on for this Saturday June 8th starting at 10:00 AM to setup and get flying.

The administration at Vista View Park has cleared us for the use of “Hill” for the day!

We are looking for a good turn out, so please join us at the Park!

 

 

 

The weather:

Partly sunny with some rain
91°F wind speed: 7 mph S
wind gusts: 9 mph  max. UV-Index: 8

We will be at the Field so don’t let the Rain in the forecast keep you away.

We are about a month away from the 50th Anniversary of the Apollo 11 Moon Landing. It is time to start preparing your Saturn 1B/Saturn 5/Lunar Module Builds to commemorate this historic occasion!

We are looking for a good turn out, so please join us at the Park!

Update:  We are talking with The Homestead Public Rocketry Club to do a Joint Launch at their Field which is located at the Homestead Air Reserve Park  on Saturday, July 20th, 2019 to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of the the First Moon Landing.  

If interested, please contact BARS at info@narbars.org.

 

Our next General Launch is this Saturday, June 8th, with setup starting at 10:00 AM.  Your help setting up is very appreciated!

Please remember to sign up to our Member/Mailing  List.   You must be on that list to Fly and go out to the Launch Pads at Vista View.

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

You must be a NAR Member to go out to the Pads.  Not a NAR Member yet?  Come on out and see what we do.  And bring your Rockets.  A BARS Member will take your Rocket out to the Pads and recover it for you.

You can become a National Association of Rocketry Member by clicking on this link.   Please note on the signup form that NAR Section # 717 sent you.  The NAR likes to keep track.                                                                                            

If you have not already done so, please enter your name in the Flight Form on the Right Side of the page as we have to give this list to the Park a day before the Launch.  

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.

We fly A through G Motors but no Multi-Stage or Cluster Rockets at this time.

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 set up 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, sunscreen and head covering to protect you from the Sun. The South Florida Sun is very strong.  Even on a Cloudy Day,  you will get fried! Chairs, small covered tents, and tables are welcome as well.

Please remember that Broward Area Rocketry does not charge any per Flight or Yearly Membership Fees for our Monthly General Launch.   We exist solely on your donations.  Please don’t forget to throw something in the Donation Jar as you come around to the Flight Table to Sign in.  Thank you all who continue to help BARS with our Launches every month!  

See you all this Saturday,

The BARS Launch Crew

Brian, George, Nick, Roy & Marc
