David Powers launch report
November 02, 2014I got to the Launch site in the rain at about 9:00am to find everyone under Joe’s cover. Started with my dog toy squeakers rocket, No Noise (because it does not whistle) on a C11-7 to test the ceiling.
Joe Cooney launch reportHalloween has come and gone and with it the 2014 flying season for SPARC. Yesterdays weather was dismal and wet at best. Today looks wonderful, but yesterday was the only day that would work for me.
Mark Howe Launch ReportUnfortunately I arrived on site after the nice weather had went away and was greeted with rain showers. The showers dampened everything around us except for our desire to launch rockets! I came with only four rockets, all of which I had prepped for the June SPARC launch but had never gotten around to launching. Managed to put up 3 out of the 4.
Dave Glass launch reportWell yes, it did start out drizzly. I was the first one at the site and wondered if I'd missed the cancellation memo! However, it did let up quite a bit and several flights were put up.
November launch concluded
November 01, 2014The forecast called for light showers to end late morning. The forecast was wrong, light showers persisted all day. That didn't stop us from launching as we had light but steady activity from about 0930 until we shut down the range around 1430. This concludes our 2014 launch season. president bob
Launch today is GOWe are GO for our last scheduled launch of the season today, Saturday November 1'st. While it is currently dry, we are expecting a light band of showers to pass through before 1100. We will be setting up the range around 0900 and then be ready with hopes of several hours of good flying conditions.
