CRG's November 2020 L/MPR Launch at Yass

Postby Voyager » Sat Oct 24, 2020 3:17 pm

Our next scheduled low/mid power launch at Manton Road, Yass, will be next Sunday 1 November, weather & fire danger permitting. Launch activities will kick off at about 09:30 and conclude at about 13:00.

Currently group gatherings in NSW are still limited to 20 people, so we will need to restrict launch attendance to the required committee members and then to normal members only on a first-in basis. No launch spectators please, unless you have checked with a committee member first to confirm whether the limit has been reached. Could normal members please indicate as to whether you plan to attend this launch.

Those of you that do attend, please ensure that you adhere to the recommended COVID-19 precautions of separation and hygiene. Add hand sanitizer (and mask if you wish) and your own pen (for filling out the launch sheet) to your list, along with the usual hat, sunscreen & water. There will be hand sanitizer at the LCO table, but we will be limiting contact exchanges to a minimum. We will announce any required procedures on the day at the pre-launch briefing.

Please note that as we are a Tripoli prefecture you must be a current Tripoli Rocketry Association and CRG member to launch with us. Please check the notifications here on the AR Forum; on our website (http://canberrarocketry.no-ip.org/); and our Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/CanberraRocketryGroup/) over the next few days to get the latest updates.

Stay safe & well.

Cheers

Unfortunately, due to unfavourable conditions (wind) and other commitments for several members, the launch was cancelled. This was our last opportunity for a normal launch this year (i.e., BP and APCP solid motors) due to the fire season restrictions. However, it is possible that we will be able to conduct launches over the Summer months due to the fact that the group has decided to embrace water rockets. Several of our members have recently acquired water rocket kits that will allow us to launch safely and enjoy the activity over the Summer months while we are all preparing for a more positive and active 2021 season.

Stay well, and stay safe!
