Hello Everyone!

Here is what’s happening in South Florida Rocketry.

Our next Launch is almost upon us and we are hoping for a clear day and working Launch Equipment.

As you can see from our headline, the next BARS Launch will be on Saturday September 3rd, 2011 starting at 9:00AM. I usually get there between 8:00AM and 8:30AM to setup the Tent, the Launch Equipment and Pads. Your help is appreciated.

Vista View Park allows us to fly 1/4A’s to G motors.

Our Ground Support Equipment includes a custom 1-pad, 3-pad and 7-pad Launch Controller from Pratt Hobbies, a Six Pad Rack with 1/8″, 3/16″ and 1/4″ Launch Rods and a Quad-Pod for those of you whose Mid Power Rockets need a Launch Rail or a 1/2″ Rod. We are covered for just about anything you can launch in our field.
