David Powers launch report

April 19, 2016

"First thank you to the RSOs and the LCOs for taking the bulk of the work yesterday. The weather for yesterday's launch was just about perfect. As far as I know no one lost a rocket (unless Joe's mini Quirk "Launch to Lose" did infact get lost) or had a long walk or a long hunt to find a rocket. First launch of the day was by Joe Cooney on a A8-3 and the last launch of the day was by Broken Glassman; a perfect flight on a G80-7. There were 20 fliers who put up 78 launches; including one Successful HP Certification launch. Congratulations to Ben Moore (I thought there where two successful certification launches, but I only have one launch card showing a successful HP1 cert launch). Colton Hoagburg did his first ever launch followed by several more launches. Joe Cooney exceeded his goal of 20 launches and put up 27. Among his launches was a 1949 Estes Viking on an A8-3 Motor break down is as follows: A 15 B 11 C 14 D 8 E 18 F 7 G 4 H 9 I 2 AT-680 1 One a cautionary note: be wary of the new Aerotech pre-installed delays. My Pike launch, on a I357-14A, discharged at 2.8 seconds into the launch at 1121 kph...to not so great results for the body tube. Thank you to everyone who came and we hope you had a good time."
