While reading about the August Launch, I came across the word “ Cricketeers”, so this is straightforward, what are cricketeers?

People who play games of Cricket. They use the Acton School St fields.

The reason some of our members are obsessed with them is in 2018 they got to the park/rec department before we did and reserved every Saturday and Sunday from at least May through September. This meant we didn't have a field to fly on during the summer months.

We've done better at securing our permits earlier the past two years but still had to chase them off once or twice.

I'm not obsessed with the crickeers, I'm obsessed with model rocketry.
As time has gone on, I have had conversations with some of the players and found them to be very nice people. As much as I love rocketry and used to love playing ice hockey, cricket is their passion and I can understand that. I have even tried to learn about cricked and teach the cricket players about baseball.

I wish the Acton field was more available but I can understand the town's point of view. The cricket league brings in a lot of revenue. We need to reserve our four days as early as possible so that we can schedule our Summer launches.

This past Saturday, all the cricket players were off the field by 4:45 PM and some of us Bandits were able to launch a few rockets starting at 5:10 PM.

In any event... the next launch is Amesbury... windy is suggesting an 8 mph wind, due south parallel to the high-tension lines... We can hope it's an overestimate in terms of speed but at least we can work with it!
