Marty Weiser launch report

April 14, 2014

It was a great day for flying rockets - the best April weather I can remember. Thanks to everyone who pitched in and made serving as the Launch Director easy. An absolutely huge THANKS to Dave Luders for mowing well over an acre of stubble for the launch site – it sure helps that he has the right mower for the job.
I think we had over 30 cars at the peak and nearly 100 people. Joe Cooney volunteered to summarize the flight cards, but I am pretty sure there were well over 100 and that he had the most flights. Most of the flights were models with a fair number of mid and high power flights. I think Rob Emanuele flew the largest and possibly the highest flight on a J330. We had a single L1 certification – Bryce Smoldon from the Colville TARC program. Bryce flew a 4” Patriot on an I161 the day after his 18th birthday. I flew a several rockets including my 4.5” diameter mosquito on an I154. I had 4 of my students from EWU who will be working on propellant characterization and they flew several of my models and seemed to have a great time. A couple of them are looking to work their way into high power certification. Marty
