CRGs' 10th HPR launch at Ardlethan

Postby Voyager » Sat Sep 19, 2015 11:37 pm

Canberra Rocketry Group will be holding our next high power launch at our Ardlethan site on the weekend of the 26th and 27th September 2015 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, let us know through either a message on Facebook, 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 hybrid capable 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.

Interstate flyers interested in launching at Ardlethan X 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.

The accommodation that we usually use is the London Hotel in Ardlethan. There is also accommodation available at the Beckom pub which is about 10km from Ardlethan and is about the same distance from the launch site as Ardlethan. So, if you are looking for accommodation, give Jason a call at the London Hotel on 02 6978 2300, or Colin at the Beckom pub on 02 6978 2313.

Hope to see you at Ardlethan X

I'm sure you will have a great launch!
It was a pleasure to meet some of you guys at Serp. I hope to make it up to a launch next year. :-)

The whole news clip can be watched on ABC iView (ABC News Sunday (ACT)). The rocketry article starts at 34:27 and goes through to 36:50. Load and then just drag the slider to 34:27 and enjoy. I am particularly impressed with the slow motion launch of my goblin on a sparky - but that could be just me being biased :D . There is also the cool footage of Nev's Exploder with a GoPro looking down the rocket at launch.
