May 9th launch is in the books
May 9th ,
Couldn't ask for a better day. The weather was beautiful, field in great condition.
Flights ranging from "F" to "K" impulse. Altitudes from 1 inch ( congratulations Frank) to 1 mile .
MAC Performance Rocketry was there showcasing some of their great products.
CTRA-NARCONN's annual membership meeting was held on February 28, 2015, After much discussion, the following actions were taken for this flying year:
* The roster of officers was ratified. Pete Shultis remains the club President, Mike Salvatore will continue to act as Treasurer, Craig Nemethy stays on as Secretary, and Gary Schwartz will once again be the Club Prefect. This was voted on and passed unanimously.
* Launch events are set for the second Saturday of each month, weather permitting. Should there be a rain delay, the launch will be held on Sunday.
* The CTRA Annual "Rocket Festival" (previously known as the invitational) is tentatively scheduled for the weekend of September 12 & 13. If the corn has not yet been harvested, it may be pushed back until the fields are cleared so flyers have an easier time with recovery of their projects. Watch our website for further information.
* Membership rates will stay as they have been for the last few years (see "Become a member"), as does the daily launch fee of $10 (waived for Golden Ticket members.)
We're very enthusiastic about building the club membership. Flyers and hand-outs are being considered, and of course your spreading the word to friends and family is encouraged.
We look forward to seeing you at our Cobleskill launch site. We anticipate many new and interesting projects to show up this year, and are excited to start the flying season!
