The Western Australian Rocketry Society cordially extends an invitation to WARS members and invited guests to attend the range located at Grass Valley 75kms east of Perth, on Saturday the 12th of July for one of our regular club launches.

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 TRA & 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.

Due to the forecast of inclement conditions for this Sunday 6th July a decision has been made to postpone the launch until Saturday 12th July.

Perth BOM are predicting winds of 23 - 25km/h making flying less than ideal.

Check back for regular updates.

The re-scheduled launch date of Saturday 12th July is looking very favorable in regard to weather conditions.
Despite wind and rain for the last week or so, it appears that there will be a sunny break with light winds from the ENE on Saturday with a return to further rain late on Sunday.

A NOTAM has been promulgated for flights to 7,000ft AMSL

What a difference a week makes .After the near Biblical weather conditions of last weekend we were gifted with a great day for launching. A small crew were on hand to make sure this opportunity wasn't wasted. Apologies for lack of pics our usual photographer is other wise engaged and look forward to his return soon .
