CMASS Winter Follies launch, January 3rd, Acton, MA

Our first launch of the year was wonderful!  Early weather forecasts had it in the high 30's with little to no wind.  As the day got closer, the predicted temps got lower and lower and the wind speed higher and higher...

In the end, the temps were in the low 30's with a stiff breeze that came and went.  The beauty of it was, with the cold snap we've been experiencing, this type of weather felt very comfortable.  When the sun would pop out from behind a cloud, you could even feel its warmth!  All in all, a great day to fly rockets!

Unfortunately, I didn't bring anything to fly!  With the past 2 snow storms we had well over a foot of snow on the ground and I just couldn't see chugging through all that snow to recover rockets...  Well, when I got to the field I discovered two things.  One, Acton had much less snow than we did and, two, most of THAT had been blown away!  There were grassy patches all over the field and what snow was there was only a couple of inches deep.  Nuts!

Still though, it was fun to socialize, and watch others fly!  I had to leave early and I am sure there are other flights of note that will appear here and there.  In the mean time, enjoy the photo album and see you folks in April!
