Due to recent rains, field conditions will not support a launch tomorrow (Saturday March 16).
Due to forecast 100% chance of thunderstorms tomorrow, the launch is cancelled. We are looking at next Saturday, March 16, but field conditions are not expected to be favorable given the amount of rain projected to fall between Tuesday and Thursday. We will post an update Friday morning after the field has been evaluated.
The bashful bride of good weather finally arrived for the anxious rocketeer grooms after running away from the past three months of scheduled launches. She was cold but calm, allowing many HP certification flights and other large motors to fly on the new field in Paint Rock. Here are a few scenes from the day.
The next launch is March 9.
Forecast is calling for a 100% chance of rain on Saturday, and it doesn’t look like it is going to change. Can’t fly in the rain, so the officers are scrubbing the launch.
A go/no go decision will be made Thursday – Please monitor this web site or the club Facebook page for launch status.
