As I reported in our last Email, Roy Snidow who was one part of our amazing Flight Crew, Passed Away on November 1st, 2020.

There will be a Memorial Service next Saturday at on November 14th, 2020 at 11:00 AM

The Service will be located at:

The Taft Street Baptist Church 7241 Taft Street. 
Hollywood Florida, 33024

It’s at the N.W. Corner of Taft Street and 72 Ave.  

Phone (954) 983-1413

 

 

Ironic that it will fall on a Vista View day.

All of our Flyers and families who would like to Show Their Respects are more than welcome to join the memorial Service.

To reiterate, Roy was an amazing person who has helped keep Broward Area Rocketry going for many years.

His knowledge of our hobby was only surpassed by the help he gave to the Club and all of the many hundreds of people who flew with us.

We could not have made Broward Area Rocketry work as well as it did without him and can never be replaced.

We wish to send our sincerest condolences to Roy’s Family, Friends and Associates.

I will post Services and Memorial Information as I receive it.   Rest In Peace.

The Flight Crew.  Broward Area Rocketry Society.

Hello to all of our flyers, spectators, and friends!

Hope you are all staying safe!

Unfortunately, Vista View Park is not open as of yet for Group Gatherings of any kind.

We checked in with the Park and even though Vista View Park is open, Broward County is still limiting all Park usage for single person activities only such as walking and playing sports on your own.

We will keep in touch with our Email Subscribers of when it will be safe to head out to the Field again.

If anything,  this is a great time to get back to building new kits and homebrews.

The Weather looks fantastic for this Saturday March 14th, 2020 

Partly sunny

84°F
wind speed: 9 mph E
wind gusts: 11 mph
max. UV-Index: 7

Please remember to sign up to our Member/Mailing  List.   You must be on that list to Fly and go out to the Launch Pads at Vista View.

Please note:  Requirements to be able to Fly at Vista View Park.

You must be a NAR Member to go out to the Pads.  Not a NAR Member yet?  Come on out and see what we do. And bring your Rockets.  A BARS Member will take your Rocket out to the Pads and recover it for you.

You can become a National Association of Rocketry Member by clicking on this link.   Please note on the signup form that NAR Section # 717 sent you.  The NAR likes to keep track.                                                                                            

If you have not already done so, please enter your name in the Flight Form on the Right Side of the page as we have to give this list to the Park a day before the Launch.  

If you have already done this,  please enter it again just to make sure. The Form will tell you if you have already done so and you will not have to do it again.

We fly A through G Motors but no Multi-Stage or Cluster Rockets at this time.

All Rockets and Motors must be inspected before you go out to the Pads.

We will also be asking for people to volunteer to be Spotters on the field.  We will change people around as the day goes on.

We are doing everything we can to stay in the good graces of the Park and the County.

The BARS Launch Crew get to the field at Vista View Park at about 10:00 AM to set up the Tent, the Launch Equipment, and Pads. Everyone is invited to help and it is very appreciated.

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

For all Launches, please remember to bring water, sunscreen and head covering to protect you from the Sun. The South Florida Sun is very strong.  Even on a Cloudy Day,  you will get fried! Chairs, small covered tents, and tables are welcome as well.

Please remember that Broward Area Rocketry does not charge any per Flight or Yearly Membership Fees for our Monthly General Launch.   We exist solely on your donations.  Please don’t forget to throw something in the Donation Jar as you come around to the Flight Table to Sign in.  Thank you all who continue to help BARS with our Launches every month!  

See you all this Saturday,
