May 102010

Once again a great time was had by all!

We had a bright blue beautiful sky on Saturday May 8th which gave us our best flight day so far. A big thank you for all the people who showed up to watch and participate!

The next Broward Area Rocketry Society Launch will be posted to the Blog and Calendar when we have a firm date scheduled.

Our sister club, Tripoli South Florida has their monthly High Power Launch scheduled for Sunday May 16th, 2010 starting at 9:30 am. All motor classes from A to N are allowed at this event.

Please check out their site for updated information and directions. Hope to see all of you there! Your family and friends are welcome to watch some incredible high power flights! If you have any model rockets of your own, please bring them with you if you would like to participate. You will also need to bring motors as well which can be purchased from several different hobby shops in the tri-county area. We have all of the launch equipment.

It is going to be a hot day, so please remember to bring sun screen, head cover and water! More information site conditions can be found on their Web Site. Tripoli South Florida

B.A.R.S. Section Updates!

As posted previously, Broward Area Rocketry Society is now officially NAR Section # 717.
All of the paperwork is just about complete and we are just waiting for our flight permits from Broward Parks Department and Vista View Park. Once this is complete, we will be able to schedule our launch days on our own.

We are also looking for other launch sites. If anyone has an idea, please email me at Rumor has it that there may be some large fields down of US27 in Broward but I have not gotten down there to check yet.

Since Tripoli South Florida normally has its scheduled launch every third Sunday, I am proposing our Launches be held every first and or forth Saturday of each month. I will be setting up a Poll for this as we tie down the loose ends.

On the Agenda for the future:
Membership Drive
Club Meetings
Club Dues
Flight Cards
Needed Launch Equipment (I am sure we can build most of it as we need it)
Advertising B.A.R.S at local Hobby Shops with our launch schedule.
Possible Club Sponsors (We already have but can use more)


To be a member of B.A.R.S, you must also be a NAR Member. Click on National Association Of Rocketry to find out more and join!

And finally, we wish the best of luck for the students of Plantation High School who will shortly be on their way to Virginia and the Team America Rocketry Challenge, Go get’em Mr. Vallone!

More Info Next Week!

Take Care,     Marc
