LIFE ON MARS 2020 17-19APRIL

Based in the greater Melbourne region, MARS is the home of amateur rocketry in Victoria. (Not to be confused with the planet, we are much closer than the planet and operate less rovers)

LIFE ON MARS 2020 17-19APRIL

Postby natty » Tue Mar 17, 2020 1:37 pm

Hello Rocketeers,

The MARS Committee is still committed to going ahead with our 3 day launch next month, however, we will make some changes to protect all those attending from COVID-19 transmission as much as possible. These measures include:
1. The General Public will not be invited to attend. Only ARF (AMRS) affiliated club members will be invited along with university teams.
2. Participants will be urged to spread out - The field is enormous and there is plenty of room, so use it. We'll have a PA so you wont miss any announcements and bring a 2 way radio
3. Hand washing station to be provided. Please bring a water container and extra soap.
4. Consider hygiene all the time.
-People usually bring rubber gloves for rocket motor case cleaning - bring extras.
-Bring extra isopropyl alcohol - people usually have this as part of their epoxy kit
-Dont touch anyone else's rocket - you shouldn't do this anyway
5. If you have or start having symptoms please remove yourself.

We are keeping tabs on the state and federal government announcements, and we will advise everyone if we are forced to call it off.

If you're intending to come, please drop us a quick line at marsrocketry@gmail.com

In the meantime, get building and call up Dave at the Wychitella Railway Hotel 03 5492 7533 to book a room if camping is not your style.

See you on the flight line!

Hello Rocketeers!

With the new measures of social distancing and isolation coming into effect, the MARS committee has made the decision to postpone Wychitella. The new date is TBD so stay tuned for updates.

In the meantime, stay at home, keep building and supporting our vendors. We hope to see some great projects when we take to the skies again!

Cheers
MARS committee

:( :( :(

Such is life.

Has somebody contacted Dave at the pub to let him know we won't be attending?
