Sunday 7th August Grass Valley Launch

Postby Scoop1261 » Fri Jul 15, 2016 11:07 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 7th of August for one of our regular club launches for the 2016 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.

We will be monitoring the weather over the next few days, and will make a go/no go call on Friday or Saturday.

At this stage, the winds are predicted to be from the WNW - W at 15km/h - 23km/h.

A NOTAM has been issued for Sunday in any case.

Regrettably, the weather for this weekend is looking particularly inclement & unsuitable for pleasant rocketry activities.
I am always loathe to cancel an event until the last minute, but in this case I do not foresee improvements on the weather front, and in actual fact may even worsen.

As is the normal WARS policy on postponements, the launch will be rescheduled to the following Sunday being the 14th August at the same times. If for some reason the launch cannot proceed on that date, it will be cancelled.

So...... Sunday 14th August, Grass Valley will be the next launch!

Here's hoping better weather is on the cards for the 14th! You know it's gotta be a bad forecast if we pull the plug on a launch!!!
