Sorry but I won’t make it tomorrow. Fair bit of cleaning up to do at home after the last couple of days of bad weather combined with a desire to limit my exposure before I restart work this week.

Yeah, me too. I'm gonna have to give tomorrow a miss as I'm still recovering from an illness since Christmas - negative Covid test result Christmas day, but sure feels draining still.
Have a great launch day guys and I'll watch out for the video highlights.

Hot, humid conditions greeted the hardy band of vaccinated club members for the January launch day. There were 15 launches for the day: A x 3, B x 1, C x 3, E x 1, F x 2, H x 4 and J x 1. Plus one less than nominal launch from Warren (the rocket had no motor...)

Largest motor for the day was Mark F flying Sighter 76 to 4000 feet.

Most prolific launcher was Greg T with 6 flights including the pin wheel launch of the Bimarc...

Best rocket award was a tie between Evan's Estes Leaper and Julian's Cake 16 made from a cake ornament.

Congratulations to our two members with their successful L1 certification flights: Greg and Owen.

See you next month! It better be cooler....
