LAUNCH INVITATION

The Queensland Rocketry Society Inc (QRS) would like to invite all interested people and members of the Australian rocketry community to our "October Skies" launch.

* If your membership is not current on the day, you will not be able to launch.
* HPR rocketeers will need to provide evidence of a current QLD explosives licence.
* If launching an unproven design, either scratch built or a modified kit, bring a copy of your sim so the RSO can verify the stability/safety of your rocket.

Please note the following communication that we have received from the Logan City Council....

On behalf of Logan City Council I am writing to advise that road works will soon be commencing on Cedar Grove Road at Cedar Grove.

The works will involve reconstruction of a 1.2km section of the road (from Leopardwood Road to Brushwood Crescent). To facilitate these works, temporary road closures will be implemented on Cedar Grove Road during construction working hours.

The attached works notice provide information on the project including traffic detours during the first and second stages of the works. You are welcome to share this information with your group.


The attached map will give guidance for detours if we are affected by this roadwork for the launch on Sunday.

Unfortunately, the QRS committee has decided that due to the forecast 90% chance of heavy rain at the launch site this weekend the advertised launch is postponed.

The launch date for October Skies is now Sunday 29 October.

Note that the AGM scheduled for 29 October will now be delayed with the date TBA.

I look forward to seeing everyone at the launch in two weeks with sunny skies!
