Good News!

We finally have our first Multi Pad Launch Controller!

Doug at Pratt Hobbies has finally delivered our first Multi Pad Controller. After spreading it all out on my kitchen table, it tested out just fine and it is ready for this coming Saturday. It can handle 3 Pads simultaneously which will allow us to keep the Launch backlog down. The Pratt Hobbies Website offers a full line of rocketry products.

Coming next Launch, our Six Pad Controller and Custom Launch Panel (Thanks to Marty for our custom case and HUGE Launch Button). Pratt Hobbies should have the Six Pad Box ready before the June 4th, 2011 Launch. I should also have the panel completed as well.

Thank you all who donated to our Club Launch Fund to help cover the costs of our club expenses which includes all of the Ground Support Equipment!

Since it worked out so well, I am going to continue our ALPHA/Donation Program.

Once again, For this coming Launch on Saturday May 7th, 2011, every person who makes a donation of $10.00 or more to our Launch Fund, (it can be more, I won’t complain) you will get a FREE Estes Alpha III kit (18.98 retail). Supplies are limited.

Here is what’s happening in South Florida Rocketry.

We are going to have some special guests at our next launch. Some of our local Cub Scout/Webelos will be joining us to launch rockets they built for their Science Badges.

As you can see from our headline, the next BARS Launch will be on Saturday May 7th, 2011 starting at 9:00AM. I will be there between 8:00 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 Launch equipment includes a Six Pad Rack with two each of 1/8″, 3/16″ and 1/4″ Launch Rods and a Quad-Pod for those of you whose MPR Rockets need a Launch Rail or a 1/2″ Rod. We are covered for just about anything you can launch in our field.

All NAR and Vista View Park Safety Rules are in EFFECT! Let’s have a SAFE DAY!
If you want to join our club, the only prerequisite is that you are a NAR Member.

You can join the National Rocketry Association http://nar.org

For Directions: https://narbars.org/launch-site/

For all Launches, please remember to bring water, sun screen and head covering to protect you from the Sun. It is hot out there! Please remember even if it is overcast you can still get fried! Chairs, small covered tents and tables are welcome as well.

TRIPOLI SOUTH FLORIDA NEWS
I personally asked the owners of our Florida City Launch Site if there were any way they would let us use the site again, I was told that would not be possible. They explained that they were extremely worried about anyone getting hurt out in the field. I am sure we all understand their reasons but that’s, that.

One a different note: I happened to be on a Motorcycle ride up to the Seminole Inn in Indiantown with the Hollywood Motor Cycle Riders Meetup Group last Sunday and as we rode up 27 to 80 and around the areas, there is an incredible amount of farm land that would make perfect HPR Launch Sites. Since I was riding with the group, I was unable to catch addresses, phone numbers or other info. If anyone has information about this land, please let me know. I will also continue to look into this.

If someone knows or has a suggestion for a High Power Launch Field in Miami-Dade, Broward or Palm Beach County areas. Please email us at info@narbars.org with any information.

You can also keep up to date at the Tripoli South Florida Website for possible future Launch dates.

That is all for now. Please keep an eye out for our emails which always lets you know of the local launches.

If you need to purchase motors, please see Bernie who usually shows up at the local launches. Please email him in advance at BENBUZZBOY3@AOL.COM to make arrangements. Bernie is a dealer for Cesaroni and Aerotech Motors and Hardware.

Anyone needing further information please contact us at info@narbars.org.

We will catch you all soon! Marc

Hello Everyone!

What an incredible day we had at our last Launch. We had great weather, low winds and I think we had our largest outing to date!

I always have to thank all the local people who came to launch with us and especially our fliers from way up north and way down south who have to brave I-95 and the Florida Turnpike just to fly a few with us.

And Marty, hope all is well with you and yours.

Thank you all who donated to our Club Launch Fund !

Since it worked out so well, I am going to continue our ALPHA/Donation Program.

Hopefully we will have a bit less wind at our next launch!

As always, I want to give a big thank you to Marty for all of his help and of course Rocket Rick, Neil, Jason and Paul?. (I know I may have gotten a name wrong or left one of our Palm Beachers out).

Level 3 Notes:

I have put my Level 3 build on the back burner for the moment until I can figure out where I could launch it.

I will keep you all up to date.

The build is a Giant Leap Liberty 6 for my Tripoli Level 3 Certification. This Rocket uses 6 inch diameter Magna-Frame body tubes, G-10 Fins and a Fiberglass Nose Cone. It is just about 11 feet in height and when finished and loaded with a Cesaroni M1770 Skidmark, the weight should come in around 48 pounds. I have pretty much finished the kit and now I am doing some heavy duty ground testing before I paint.

For Pictures of the build: Click here.

I will be uploading more pictures as I complete the ground testing.

The kit itself was a custom design from Giant Leap Rocketry
It is an upscale of the GLR Liberty 4 which I used for my Level 2 Certification.

If anyone is interested in the RockSim 9 file for this kit, please email me at info@narbars.org

I highly recommend Giant Leap as one of Rocketry’s Leading Vendors.

We will catch you all soon!, Marc
