CMASS November 16th launch in
Our last launch of the season!
November day in New England! Who'd'a' thunk it?
Temps in the high 50's (hot, for us up here in the great white
north) with winds gusting up to 4mph. That's right,
GUSTS up to 4mph... Beyond that, it was a dead
calm. I don't think we've had better flying weather all
season than we did this fine day!
And what a
crowd! We set up an hour later than normal, as we were
staying late for a night launch, and by the time the range was
opened we had 80 people in attendance! By the middle of
the day we had blossomed to over 150! We had rocketeers
fro 5 to 65, guys and gals, skilled and unskilled, new comers
and many of the same old faces.
We had low power
and high power, misfires and mishaps, and more rocketry than
you can shake a stick at. I was unable to stay the full
day as I have family coming up and wanted to get ready for
that, but I was there for most of it and wished I could have
Special thanks to
the hard working folks at CMASS, who host these launches
throughout the year. Your collection of dedicated
members and wealth of experience makes these launches some of
the best in the country (from someone who flies all over the
country!). I look forward to the Winter Follies in
January and wish you and yours a most wonderful Christmas and
upcoming holiday season!
