I think it would help to mention that college students would be using the property. BUT, college teams should only be allowed to launch under the supervision of a NAR section during club launches. It has been our experience that some college teams do not always follow the NAR high power safety code or make the best decisions on what configurations to launch or not launch. It got to the point last year where myself and a few other CMASS members hosted seminars on rocketry safety at local colleges. I still have my Power Point deck if anyone needs it.

I am not trying to be negative, just realistic and practical. I would love to be able to launch high power at a very large field but, I'm not the one that has to drive a trailer from New Hampshire to Halifax or drive there from Amesbury.

I found the RC club on Facebook tonight. It looks like they recently moved their flying area from the north side of the field (near the solar array) to the east side of the field. I just sent a message to see how they were able to get permission to do that. I’ll tell you if they reply.

It's been nearly a week since I messaged the Wingbusters RC club, and they haven't responded. If I have time, I'll try to swing by there on the way to the CMASS launch in Amesbury next Saturday. If no one is there, we may have to go through more official channels.
