Meeting and launch this week!

This Thursday is the monthly HARA meeting at the ETF on the grounds of the U.S. Space and Rocket Center. Got quite a few things to discuss, so please be there at 7:30 PM!

We have also received some good news – there will be a high power launch up at the Manchester sod farm this Saturday. The range opens at 10 AM, and the weather looks absolutely fabulous for launching rockets! So collect your rockets and motors and mosey up the road for what could very well be the final high power launch of the season (There will be no on-site vendor this Saturday, so plan accordingly)!

Did I mention that visitors are very welcome at our meetings and launches? Ya’ll come on out and join the fun!

Important! Anyone wishing to certify level 3 should contact the HARA or MC2 officers as soon as possible to ensure the appropriate people are present at the field. The HARA officers can be reached at officers@hararocketry.org

Meeting Notes
We had a few new faces around the HARA meeting hall. There were over twenty people in all. So, thank you to all you new folk for coming, and we hope you come back. Both Vince and Bill gave great Tech Talks. Vince share his story behind the flight of his scale NASA Ares I rocket, commissioned by NASA for gaining public interest in the program through rocketry. Bill delivered an energizing talk about to upcoming ‘Great American Solar Eclipse’ to occur on August 21, 2017. And we are within driving distance of it. Bill regaled us with tales of the 1979 eclipse he witnessed, and gave tips to would-be watcher. Thank you gentlemen for your presentations. Vince’s is available on the HARA website at the link above. Bill’s presentation will be available soon.

Halloween Rockets

dsc_0957cTis the season to be scary, so what does your imagination bring up that will fly? Take a simple model, paint it with seasonal colors, add a few spooky stickers and you’re set. Pass through the Halloween decorations aisle at any store and you will see (with your rocketeer’s eyes) possible structural elements to add to an airframe. It’s a trick to get the weight distribution and surface area balanced for stable flight, but what a treat when it comes together.dsc_0953cdsc_0955cdsc_0967c100_0036c
