I know there will be a proper launch report here anytime but just quickly wanted to mention that : Weather was absolutely perfect with no wind and around +25c temp's.

Again I must say that it is so awesome to see so many new faces at our launches and even this was a slow small club launch I believe there was total of 36 rockets being launched ! 8)

I also believe there was two successful L1 attempts. :D

Over all fantastic day of rocketry. And, the next one is our very popular OCTOBER SKIES Open Day launch. :P

Launch Report.

As Ari mentioned earlier, it was a superb launch day after the proceeding two days of storms.There were many new faces, some trial memberships and new members. Most prolific launchers were new members, brother and sister Robbie and Alexa Newton. Robbie launched his rocket "Red Tip" 5 times and Alexa also launched her purple and pink rocket "Girl Power" 5 times. This is reflected in the types of rockets launched with 24 LP and 3 MP of the total 36 launches for the morning.

There were 2 successful L1 certification flights for the day. Srdan Ivkovic flew his Callisto "Red Devil" to 3000 feet on an H133 and Riley Sharp flew his rocket "You'll Clean That Up When You're Finished" to 2000 feet on an H125. Congratulations guys.

Warren McKay flew his 54mm MD "Light Saber" airframe that he set a single impulse L motor record in but that has now had drastic surgery on. The new "cut & shut" version is now 600mm shorter and is called "Light Saber Short". Warren intends to break his own record at Westmar in 3 weeks time with a 28-29K flight.

Roland Noales had an interesting CATO on his AMRAAM "Mini BBX" which I managed to get a series of photo's of. The rocket began to lift off normally but then slipped back down the rail with a rapid series of puffs of brown smoke from the side of the rocket, quite spectacular. Roland did have much better luck with his 2 other launches, his Calisto on an H90 and a scratch built LP 2 stage rocket "Zenith 2".

Yet another great launch day with lots of activity.

Sorry I missed the day - looks like great conditions.

Sometimes life just gets too complicated! Hopefully back for October and looking forward to Westmar.
