Hey Guys!

I wanted to share the exciting news that the Westborough Rocketry Club will be hosting Thunder over the Turf - A rocket lanch with the goal of bringing together hobbyists, students, onlookers, and anyone interested in the sport! The event will commence on June 17th, at Hastings Elementary school in Westborough, MA. We'll have a sport range, a contest, and more to follow soon.

Our NAR event page: www.nar.org/events/thunder-over-the-turf/

Keep an eye out for more details...

If you'd like to volunteer, feel free to reach out via the forum. 

Hope to see you there!

You can "pencil" me in.
I work nearby in Westboro and I just checked out the field on Google Maps. Looks good for A and B engines at least. I might be working that morning but I get out at 10. So I'm very.mich interested.

Hey Everyone! 

 Thunder over the Turf is just less than 2 weeks away!  

Now that things are falling into place, here's a more "official" post.  

1. Event details 

We'll be hosting 2 ranges, one sport range (for model rockets, or "pyro" lets say), and one for the Paper Rocket Competition. Details about it will follow soon as well. 

 2. Launch Passes 

 For those wishing to fly (pyro), a launch pass of $5 will be obtainable at the site. This is good all day and unlimited.  This goes towards fundraising our TARC initiative and other club activities! 

Children under 14 wishing to fly will not need a pass, likewise, any non pyro rocket flown doesn't need a launch pass as well, regardless of age.

Launch Pass Form  docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdIkUo1...rIwdGG3TpBA/viewform  3.

Timing ; 


The event runs from 11 AM to 3 PM. 4. Field Limits Engine Classes of 1/4A - D Will be allowed.  E and F rockets can be allowed, but you’ll need to discuss that with us prior or on launch day.  Our Altitude Ceiling now stands at around 350 ft.  If you have a Jolly Logic Chute Release, you may be allowed to break this limit, but please contact us so we can help. 

 
If you have a youth/scout group wishing to attend, or have any questions about the event, feel free to contact us!
  You can reach out to me via the forum, or contact the event director via the NAR event site as posted above. 
If you're interested in attending, please fill out the Interest Form, and if applicable, Launch Pass Form. Thanks!

Hey Y'all!

TTT is just a couple of days away!

The Weather has, however, shifted towards some Scattered Storms that weekend. Looks like Nature also wanted to cache in on the event too...

We'll be updating our launch status here as time goes on, and of any changes if so.

Hey Y'all, it's with a heavy heart that we (WestRocks) announce that Thunder Over the Turf is officially scrubbed due to some actual thunder over the turf.  Please monitor this page over the next week for any sign of reschedule or cancellation. Due to school schedules and summer vacation nearing, there is a possibility that a long reschedule could take place. 

Thanks CMASS and all for your support!
We Appreciate it dearly. Preparation could not have happened without it
:)

Those who purchased launch passes will be notified separately. 

Until next time,
Aaryan

Hi Guys, 

We were hoping for a spot this weekend, but sadly it too is drenching out, TTT has been indefinitely rescheduled. We hope to "reactivate" this sometime in the summer or early September, maybe we'll even get a bigger turnout. 

Once again, a Big Thanks to CMASS, supporters, attendees, and volunteers!
Delays may happen, but maybe it'll work out for the better. 

Fly-Hi and Fly-Safe, 
Aaryan
