Jul 022012

Hello Everyone!

Here is what’s happening with Broward Area Rocketry.

Vista View Park has confirmed our access to the Hill for our July 7th, 2012 9:00 A.M. Launch Date.

The Weather is looking pretty good so far for this Saturday but as South Florida goes, we will keep our fingers crossed!

Partly Sunny Temp: 91°F Wind speed: 7 mph WSW Wind Gusts: 11 mph

I will post a Weather update toward the end of the week.

Here is a Video of Scott’s Two Stager

As you can see from our headline, the next BARS Launch will be on Saturday, July 7th, 2012 starting at 9:00AM.

Scott, myself and a few others usually get there between 8:00AM and 8:30AM to setup the Tent, the Launch Equipment and Pads. Everyone is invited to help and it is very appreciated.

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

Our Ground Support Equipment currently includes a custom new 10-Pad Relay Launch System, 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 $20.00 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 have to.

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.
