Hello Everyone!

Here is what’s happening with Broward Area Rocketry.

Vista View Park has confirmed for our April 7th, 2012 launch date.

Note:  I know this is a big Holiday weekend for the many of you who celebrate Passover or Easter.  I had to make a decision whether or not to hold the Launch or wait till May because of the Holidays.  I decided not to break the schedule and we will be at the field. Broward Area Rocketry wishes you all a Safe and Happy Holiday for those who celebrate one, the other or both.

As you can see from our headline, the next BARS Launch will be on Saturday, April 7th, 2012 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 7-pad Launch Controller, a newly updated and modified Six Pad Rack with 1/8″, 3/16″ and 1/4″ Launch Rods with individual aiming for each Pad 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.

Thank you to all of you who continue to donate to our Launch Fund. We will continue to offer a free Model Rocket Kit for a $10.00 or higher Donation. (If you want to donate and not take the kit that is OK too) Your voluntary donations help cover our equipment and permit costs and it also allows us not to have to charge Club Dues or monthly per person flight fees which most Rocketry Clubs do. Your continued Donations helps to keep us going by making it possible to get new equipment and keep our current equipment maintained and upgraded.

As I mentioned in the last E-Mail, We have a big surprise coming in for our May Launch. I am not going to give it away just yet but your Donations have made this surprise possible and I thank you all!

All NAR and Vista View Park Safety Rules are in EFFECT! Let’s have a SAFE DAY!

We do urge you to  join the National Association of Rocketry http://nar.org   The NAR does a lot to keep our hobby alive and they can use your support as well.

Also please remember that starting at the April Launch we will be using a new Flight Log Sheets to schedule each of your Rocket Launches.
