CRG next HPR Launch 12th and 13th July

Postby Busterandjo » Fri Jun 06, 2014 10:44 pm

ARDLETHAN 5.1
Canberra Rocketry Group will be holding our next high power launch at our Ardlethan site on the weekend of the 12th and 13th July 2014 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. If you would like to come along and launch, let us know through either a message on the forum, our Facebook page or through email to canberrarocketry@ozemail.com.au

CRG has the launch equipment to launch low, mid power rockets on rods and high power rockets on 1010 rail (up to 2.8 metres long). We are not hybrid capable at the moment but rocketeers are more than welcome to bring along their own launch kit to supplement ours or to launch their own rockets if they need something that we do not have.

We have received written advice from NSW WorkCover that interstate rocketeers are able to launch at the event without having to go through the process of obtaining a NSW Security Clearance and Pyrotechnicians licence. Interstate flyers interested in launching at Ardlethan 5.1 should contact us for further details by emailing canberrarocketry@ozemail.com.au

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 London Hotel Motel in Mirrool St Ardlethan is where most of us stay and have a good feed at a very reasonable price – and the beer is nice and cold. We will meet up there for a meet and greet and a feed on the Friday night (11th July).

Just to clarify the advice from NSW WorkCover. The advice applies to interstate flyers that already hold valid interstate approvals - i.e. they have satisfied the requirements of their home state for the use of HPR motors and who are certified by their home rocketry organisation to use HPR motors. NSW / ACT flyers must still comply with NSW WorkCover requirements.

My apologies for any confusion the wording of the original post may have caused.
