Launch on April 26th

Hello everyone! It has been a while, and we’ll be updating on a more frequent basis.

    Over the last year we have had great success in finding a new launch site and having regular build sessions.  Our new launch site is just off the 29 on the 1660, and is in a beautiful area.  We really appreciate the landowners for accommodating us and being so enthused about rockets!

Our next launch will be Saturday April 26th, from 1:30-4:00.  The site is off the 1660, turn onto Heritage Parkway and we will be directly on your left. This is a gated community, so please email webmaster@bootsandchutes.org or donna.johnson@bootsandchutes.org for the code.

We’ll see you there!

 

Rocket Launch June 1

Our postponed rocket launch is on for tomorrow!  The forecast says it might be a little breezy but not too bad, and the possible rain is forecasted for the afternoon.  So, we’re good to go.  If it is raining tomorrow morning at 9am, the launch will be canceled, but I don’t see that happening.

This launch is our normal sport launch, along with our fun contest.which is Eggloft Drag Race this month.  If you are going to NARAM, feel free to test your rockets, as most of the events are really low power this year.  The only one I would hesitate to test is the C Dual Egglofter.  All rockets, of course, will be allowed at the discretion of the Safety Officer.

9:30am to noon

See you there! 🙂

 

Rocket Launch is on!

The April rocket launch is on for April 20 from 9:30am to noon. 

We will be having a fun contest  – Badminton Birdie Altitude.  The rules are:

 Must fly safely per the NAR rules.
 A engine-power or less.
Must be made from a real badminton birdie.
 It must look like a badminton birdie on the pad..
 Best flight out of two. Whatever is on the pad must fly (no parts left behind). 
If the model is staged, the lowest stage will qualify for altitude. 
If the model separates, the lowest part will qualify for altitude.

We hope to see you there.  Come out and have some fun!

 

March 23 Launch cancelled

Our rocket launch this Saturday is cancelled due to the Commissioner’s Court issuing a burn ban.
Our next launch will hopefully be our regularly scheduled April launch on April 20.  We will hold our badminton birdie altitude fun contest on that date, providing the weather or burn bans don’t get in the way.
