rocketry related events in vic area?

Postby Brian » Thu Oct 21, 2010 5:12 pm

i cant help but notice the lack of anything happening in the MMRG forum. so i was thinking, is there somewhere i could view all the rocketry related events in the MMRG or vic area? could i suggest posting these on the MMRG website.
does anyone think the MMRG will be launching rockets soon, i hope to join in the fun!

Hi Brian,
I was just thinking today that there hasn't been a launch for a while. I was just pondering about ten minutes ago when I'll get there to launch some of my rockets!

Unfortunately I have almost no spare time currently, so I can't plan when that's going to happen. :(

If you want to propose a launch date, post it here and see what interest there is. Usually someone will turn up.

As I have said before, MMRG is more of an amorphous clump of rocketeers rather than a club...

G'day, I am new to model rocketry and have only just joined the forum.
I am most interested in learning more, gaining experience etc and would like to join "the Clump".
I will keep watching for news or views.

OK, i'm busy with preparing for exams and repairing all my water rockets. so i reckon at least sometime on the holidays could get the most racketeers, but i'm happy with anytime!
up for debate.

Hi Guys

I am a Victorian and attend Tripoli day's and go to Ross Finlay's 'Rocketfests', but have never managed to catch up with you guys. When was the last time MMRG meet?

Cheers, Karl

Assuming the silly season doesn't get in the way I might be able to make it to 12th December. I have a Raven2 altimeter I want to try in some low-flying stuff.

Probability 40%...

How do you mean? I've seen pictures of a water rocket booster with a bottle rocket sustainer!
If a hybrids what you want, you could shoot black-powder out the back of a water rocket and light it :twisted: but probably not.
There shoulden't be problems with water rockets and model rockets in close proximity! 8)

Hi Guys

I'd like to come along on the 12th and fly some low-powered stuff and see some water rockets (new to me!). What's the address of the basketball courts?

Cheers, Karl

State Volleyball Centre 270 Stud Road Dandenong Vic 3175

Go behind the centre and park. Beyond the kids playground area you will see an oval. That is where we launch.

I am still hoping to get there that day.
