High power launch tomorrow (Saturday February 22)!

Thank you all,~A\

February launch cancelled


Today I must somberly announce that our Tripoli Prefect’s latest inspection has not gone well:

“Both fields are underwater, and according to the NWS the river won’t crest until Friday and it won’t be below flood stage until sometime Sunday.

Taking next week’s weather prospects into account, it looks like our February is washed out.For those looking for launch alternatives, (Student Launch Teams, etc…) Music City Missile club appears to still be holding a launch (with backup 22nd).  Check out their website and facebook page for details

Thank you for your patience and understanding folks, we’ll get back in the air when we can
