September Launch Report

By:  Cari Schneider
What a great September launch we had! The range was set up and open by 7:30. By 11 we were nearing 100 degrees with little to no breeze. With the heat continuing to rise, launching stopped about noon and no more than 5 minutes later the “W” switch was turned on! There were 180 flights including several clusters, two stages, and crowd pleasers!  There were also 3 successful certification flights. 1 Jr NAR Level 1, 1 NAR Level 1 and 1 NAR Level 2. Congratulations to Shawn Bower, Chris Sandberg, and Mike Swanson on your certs.  All in all a great day!

September Launch

Weather looks great for the Sept ROC launch!  Mid to high 90’s so remember to stay hydrated. We plan to open the range at 7:30 and fly until 1:00 .  As always, help with set up, LCO, FSR and picking up is appreciated.  See you Saturday!
