Happy New Year!

 

 

 

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

Unfortunately again for the third month in a row,  we have had to cancel our General Launch for bad weather.

We have been checking all of the major Weather Reporting Sites and they all are forecasting Rain between 10 and 30 percent.

They also predict that the winds will be from 23 MPH and gusts to 30 MPH plus.

We all know that this is not flyable or safe conditions.

Hoping for better luck on February 8th, 2020

We are on for this Saturday December 14th, 2019 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 10% or less chance of some rain   84°F
Wind speed: 9 mph WSW   Wind gusts: 13 mph max. UV-Index: 5
We will be at the Field so don’t let the possible Rain in the forecast keep you away.

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
