September WVSOAR Launch, Rio Grande, OH
#1
Hello, and welcome to our September club launch. It is planned for  Saturday, Sept. 19th, weather permitting.

We borrow the field at the Bob Evans Farm, in Rio Grande, Ohio once a month to launch from 10am to 4pm.
The launch date is open to any rocketeer, born again, NAR member or newbie....
We practice safety on the field, but don't stand on formality.
Updates and discussion of field conditions, weather, postponements and other club business is held on our facebook page: WVSOAR NAR 546, and all are welcome to read over our shoulder or post questions.

We normally have at least one vendor present who helps us with supplies, motors, kits, etc.  However, they also travel to other larger venues, so ask in advance if you're counting on buying something specific. UPDATE: THERE WILL BE NO VENDOR AT THE SEPT. 19th EVENT. Sorry.

We're batting about 66-33 so far this year, with four very successful launches, and two rained-out .  A NOTAM will be filed with the FAA for pilots.  There is normally a "K motor Limit under 10,000 feet" but if you have questions, please ask. (I'm LPR and so the HPR terminology is greek to me!)

The drive to the field is virtually all expressway, and there's a great Bob Evans restaurant immediately across the road from us, so feel free to load up and set the cruise control to come spend the day in SE Ohio with us! [Image: cool.png]

Please note, due to a family conflict, the Sept. 12th launch has been post-poned to our rain date, one week later, on Sept. 19th. Unfortunately, a number of us can't make that date, but there is a club launched scheduled and will be set up for those who can attend! (Our annual Halloween drag race will be held in October. To participate, please secure and build your Goblin rocket. This informal friendly competition will be judged one point for: first off the pad, highest apogee, last to land, closest to pad, and anything else we can think of to break a tie! Come have fun!)
