Once again, we had just about perfect weather for our monthly club launch!

We welcomed some newcomers as well as some of our regulars. Thanks to Dan and Barry and their family’s for joining us!

Also I want to thank Chris, Steve and Mr. Joe Vallone for adding to the day!

Next Month I promise to have a sign in sheet so I don’t forget anyone!

I do want express some big thank you’s for the following people for not only joining us but helping to make it a spectacular day and our best launch to date!

A big thank you to “Rocket Rick” from Tripoli West Palm Beach for helping BARS commemorate the 9th Anniversary of 9/11. Rick was kind enough to help represent BARS in remembrance of that day with his “American Dream” Which is shown below. The rocket besides being patriotic, is a beautiful piece of work!

And also I want to thank our friend Marty of our TSF Group, for being a wealth of help and information, Marty is also helping out BARS with the donation of Launch Rods and Custom made Blast Deflectors. Also, how do you properly thank someone who drives almost three hours round trip and helps you setup and breakdown. I will have to figure that out!

Other News:

We should have our Club Launch Rack ready to go by the next Launch!. I am gathering the parts and should have it completed. I am still deciding whether to make it a 4, 5 or 6 pad rack. I may just do a 4 and if we need to, build a second one later. You will know when you see it!

As a final note, I want to express my extreme thanks to my friend Les, his wife Cindi and Tom his father-in-law for joining us and helping out with rocket retrieval. It is always great to have family at a Launch!

We will catch you all soon!, Marc
