Last June we told about HARA’s project to help Levi’s jeans do a photo shoot for a fashion ad- http://hararocketry.org/hara/vintage-rocketeer-jeans/ and promised to post the pictures when they came out. Well, the spring collection is released and here are some representative shots from the portfolio, mainly ones with our rockets in them. It’s a nice homage to the ‘rocket boys’ style of the fifties and the amateur dreams of spaceflight.
Congratulations to these teams who will be representing our state at the TARC finals May 18 at Great Meadow, The Plains, VA.

HARA would like to salute the eight Huntsville area teams for their efforts. It’s been a tough year – not only were the design goals for this TARC challenging with three eggs to fly, but there was also the fight against some very persistent wet weather. Despite the rain, the local teams managed to complete many practice flights and all got qualified scores.

Launch is a GO! The field is in good shape.
However, bear in mind that there could be up to 1/2″ of rain before launch time tomorrow, so be careful where you park – we do not have the capability to pull stuck vehicles from mud. Also, the launch could be interrupted or cut short by scattered showers or storms, so please be weather aware.
It’s time to fly!
The forecast for tomorrow morning/afternoon continues to improve – club officers will evaluate the field conditions this afternoon and a no go/go decision will be announced soon thereafter.
Stay tuned – things look more promising.
Weather forecast for Saturday continues to get worse – plus the rain anticipated on Friday could create unacceptable field conditions. A no-go/go decision will be made mid-day on Friday.
Not looking good right now, but stay tuned…
We will be launching at the Butler Mill field (see http://hararocketry.org/hara/high-power-launches/ for directions).
No on-site vendor, so bring your stuff!
Weather forecast iffy at this time – stay tuned for further updates.
On this beautiful 23rd day of March, 13 teams made 50 flights at the UNA regional challenge. Vince and Allen provided HARA launch and scoring services for the contest held at the Russellville field. Cullman HS did the best with a ‘15’ and might be up for the finals with that qualification score. Rogers, MASE and Central HS also qualified with the rest of the schools flying just for regional points. They opted to keep tweaking before they use another attempt turn, so the March madness of TARC continues.
