Our Acton Winter Follies launch in 2022 is Saturday, 22 January. We will still be following the COVID-19 protocalls set forth by the state. Please fill out the tracing form and bring it with you.
If the weather looks too bad for that day, we have the flexibility to postpone the launch to the Sunday of that weekend.
As always, Acton is a low- and mid-power field only; no high-power motors and no sparkies. Set-up will be scheduled for 9:45 AM. We'll likely use a smaller number of pads set up on sawhorses as the ground will be even harder to pound our usual stakes into. There won't be any launch fee but we may use launch cards if the conditons allow.
This launch will also be a good place for any TARC teams to do practice or qualifying flights. We'll have TARC only launches sheduled for 19 February, 05 & 19 March and 02 April. Keep an eye on the website as each date approaches to see what field will be used that day.
This is typically a short duration launch shutting down in the early afternoon so hot dogs will not be available. If COVID-19 conditions allow, there will be the usual debriefing at an area restaurant after we pack up the trailer; you are welcome to attend.
