Sunday 2nd July Grass Valley Launch

Postby Scoop1261 » Mon Jun 26, 2017 8:44 am

The Western Australian Rocketry Society INC. cordially extends an invitation to WARS & AMRS members and their invited guests to attend the range located at Grass Valley 75kms east of Perth, on Sunday the 2nd of July for one of our regular club launches for the 2017 season.

The CASA instrument permits launches of HPR up to a maximum ceiling of 7,000ft. DMP has given permissions for the use of J, K, L & M impulse motors.

Facilities will be available onsite for AMRS members wishing to attempt L1, L2 & L3 certifications

The range will open for operation at 09:30 and will continue through to 17:00. Any assistance with range setup is appreciated.

There have been a few enquiries regarding the launch status due to weather........Whilst I'm not a meteorologist, I have been looking at the weather forecast and it is looking like it will be suitable for the launch to proceed.

Forecast
Frosty at first, then sunny
0 degrees - 15 degrees
Winds SW -SSW at 8km/h - 12km/h

Bring your winter woollies and you'll be fine!

I only managed to get a couple of photos.

Mark H's AMRAAM on a H180W .... I was happy with the fast frame rate of my new Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mk II ....although focus is still something I need to work on
