CRG's November 2018 LPR/MPR Launch at Yass

Postby Voyager » Mon Oct 29, 2018 10:24 pm

Canberra Rocketry Groups next low and mid power launch will be held at our Manton Road launch site on Sunday November 4th, weather permitting. The lack of recent rain has meant that the paddock at the launch site is drying off rapidly with this wind and heat. There is a chance of rain later in the week but temps are going to be in the low to mid 30's so a final decision to launch or not will be made on Saturday in conjunction with the local fire captain, but at the moment we are looking like we will get a launch in. Set up will start at 9:00am with launching to start at about 9:30am.

This will also be our last launch for the year. We do not launch during the summer months due to the increased risk of fire. We like to call this hiatus the "repair and build period". We are likely to hold a working bee at the site in December to lay a slab for our rocketry shed - a place to store our launch gear and the like, but more on that later.

Apologies for not posting an advisory for our October LPR/MPR launch, but check out our Facebook page for further updates and pics of our launches at https://www.facebook.com/CanberraRocketryGroup.

Unfortunately we’ve had to cancel next Sunday’s launch due to the current & forecast conditions of heat, lack of significant rain & high winds. We will, however, be organising a day later in November, or early December, to lay a slab for our range shed.
