Canberra Rocketry Group September High Power Launch

Postby Busterandjo » Sat Aug 24, 2013 12:38 am

Canberra Rocketry Group will be holding our next high power launch at our Ardlethan site on the weekend of the 21st and 22nd September weather permitting. The High Power launch site has a ceiling of 15 000 feet and is located in wide open paddocks with few trees. We will also be launching low and mid power rockets. All rocketeers are welcome to come along and fly to their certification level. Launching will kick off about 8:30 each morning and will wrap up about 5pm on the Saturday and 1pm on Sunday

Ardlethan is about 3 ½ hours from Canberra, 4 ½ hours from Sydney and about 5 hours from Melbourne. Head to the CRG website (http://canberrarocketry.no-ip.org) and go to the High Power page for more details on the site. Click on the following link for a Google maps link showing the location of Ardlethan – http://goo.gl/maps/z3jXW

There are several options for accommodation in the area however these are limited as Ardlethan and surrounding towns are fairly small. There are pubs at both Ardlethan and Beckom and Ardlethan has a caravan park. The plan is to meet up at the London Hotel in Ardlethan on the Friday night for a meet and greet over a meal and a few beers.

Cheers

Tony

Afternoon all

The weather looks like it is clearing for our High Power launch at Ardlethan this weekend. It looks like there may be some light misty scuds about but generally it will be OK with only light winds predicted at the moment. As a result, the launch is definitely going ahead at the moment. If this changes I will post up on here and our Facebook page.

The plan is to meet up at the London Hotel for a meal and a beer or two on Friday evening and then head out Saturday morning so launching can commence at about 8:30 – 9am.
