CRG's High Power Launch at Ardlethan XI

Postby Voyager » Tue Apr 05, 2016 11:33 pm

Canberra Rocketry Groups first high power launch will take place on the weekend of the 9th and 10th of April at our Ardlethan HPR launch site 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 at 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 have some hybrid launch capability 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. Contact us via email address and we can discuss if our kit fits your system. Interstate flyers interested in launching with us at Ardlethan are most welcome and should contact us for further details by emailing canberrarocketry@ozemail.com.au.

Ardlethan is about 3½ hours from Canberra, 4½ 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.

See you all at Ardlethan
