David Powers launch report

November 02, 2014

I 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 report

Halloween 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 Report

Unfortunately 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!

Dave Glass launch report

November launch concluded

November 01, 2014

The 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

Lou Bragg launch report

July 02, 2014

I know this is quite late in posting but I figured I needed to get one out. SPARC's June launch blasted into the morning skies of the 7th. Conditions started out good and gradually got better.
