We have two limited launches coming up on 18 March and 01 April for TARC practice and qualifying attempts.

These are not open club launches; they are meant only for TARC teams and possibly SLI teams if we can accommodate them. We do want to be sure to have enough volunteers at the field to provide all the services our club is well known for:
  • hefting of launch equipment out to the launch area (if we can't drive the trailer out there) and setting up the pads and controller
  • timing and certification of results for qualifying flights
  • all around source of last minute knowledge
As a minimum, it would be nice to have six people but more is always better. Witnesses and timers should be active NAR members but non-NAR members can help with the other tasks including launching. If you can help on one or both dates or have any questions, please reply on this thread.

If you are on a TARC team that needs to use our services, let us know here, too.

With the warm weather this weekend, the CMASS trailer is no longer snow bound. If we don't get too many snow storms between now and the launch(es), the trailer should be all set.

The forecast has improved for the 18th, but time will tell. We're still going to get a foot to a foot-and-a-half of the white stuff between now and then. Who expected Mother Nature to treat us kindly?
