February 18 & 19 Launch

WHEN ENTERING THE FARM, PLEASE MAKE SURE TO DRIVE ON THE SIDE OF THE RUNWAY AND PLEASE DRIVE SLOW! 

* Also if you arrive before 9:30am you may be asked to move your vehicle to allow the field to be set up. My suggestion, if you arrive early don't set up your pit area until the field has been set up.

When: February 18 & 19, 2017

Where: The Williams Farm. See Web Site for directions if you are new.

Set Up: Volunteers show up at 9:30 am to help setup.

Launch Start: As soon as set-up is complete.

Launch Ends: Approximately 4ish PM so we have some light to close by.

Ken Allen, with Performance Hobbies is scheduled to be at the farm.

No Food so bring your own!

Any pictures you take from any recent or upcoming launch that you would like to get posted on the web site for our embarrassment and your entertainment, just contact Doc Russell at: rocketrycarolina@gmail.com. (Remember to make the appropriate substitutions... we don't like spam bots!) Or, as some have done, pass it on a disk or flash drive. We can always get it back to you. We are continuing with our Range Safety standards by making specific assignments:

RSO/ LCO = Range Safety Officer to pre-inspect rockets before flights

combined with the Launch Control Officer to check range conditions and control the launch’s in a timely and efficient manner. Check both the WEB site and at the launch for info on volunteering. It’s great for anybody who isn’t flying that day but wants to take part anyway. It’s fun to push the little red button.

ROCC Club Memberships. Memberships run Jan to Jan with the drive starting in Oct for the new coming year. Onsite: See our Membership Officer Jason Pettler. For MAIL-IN: See the web site for downloadable membership forms and e-mail address.

This just in from Roy Potter.....  Please remember that the much delayed/postponed ROCC Rocket Raffle will be held with the intent to raffle away all the rockets we have accumulated so far.

Drawings will be held throughout the weekend every few hours, and also note that all tickets previously sold last month were saved and are included in the drawing box's.

Just $1 a ticket, 6 tickets for $5 & $10 for 12 tickets. (BTW, if you're really interested & flush with cash, the same formula works for $20, $50, $100...   just sayin'!! - dr)
