Finally! Up and goring with a site and a 2011 calendar

Postby NevB » Thu Feb 03, 2011 11:59 am

G'day all!

It's been a bit (rather, a LOT) quiet around the traps, but I am really pleased to announce, that following some sterling introductory work by a group member (cheers again Rob B), the Canberra Rocketry Group now has a formal launch site!

Located to the SE of Yass on a private property, the site is an easy 45 minute drive from Belconnen, and has some really great potential. OCTA up to 6,500 feet AMSL, we have plenty of room for low and mid-power flights.

Head over to the group website - http://canberrarocketry.no-ip.org for all the details, and perhaps think about coming along if you're able.

Cheers,

Nev B
CRG Coordinator

Hi Nev ......I suppose it's a case of "Better late than never" with your launches.

Congrats on getting approvals for your site........hope you have some great launch days!

Glad to hear you have a place to launch now !

Will try to make it down there sometime.

Unfortunately it seems there is some form of virus residing on your nice new website :(
