Just to let everyone know that due to dry conditions in Amesbury, MA the Flis Kits Anniversary will be held at the Harvard Turf Farm(formerly Tuckahoe Turf Farm.) 305 Hubbard Road / Berwick Maine. We are on the far east side of the field and someone will direct you to parking.
Set up is at 09:00 and we will launch when ready till 16:00.
We have a launch scheduled for 10 September 2016 at the Harvard Turf Farm (formerly Tuckahoe Turf Farm) in Berwick, Maine. Set up will start about 9:30 and we’ll be flying as soon as everything is ready to go. The plan is to fly until 4 PM.
What are you planning on flying?
Robert and Gloria will be there covering all your AMWProX needs. If you’re looking for anything in particular, check with them ahead of time. Remember to bring your 38 mm CTI reloads so Robert can check your delay grain holder. If it’s from the bad batch, he’ll replace it at no charge to you. Whether you are going to fly them that day or not, bring them along so they can be inspected and, if necessary, replaced.
If you’re going for your Level 1 or Level 2 certification, please let us know ahead of time and have all of your paperwork ready along with your NAR card to show your active status. If you’ve recently joined or certified at a level but don’t have your updated card yet, bring your temporary card and/or a print out from the national website to show you are allowed to fly the level you’d like to fly. If you’re going for your Level 3 certification, you should know enough to have all your ducks in a row well before you get to the field.
If you’re going to need the 1515 rail, give us a heads-up about that, too; if we don’t have to lay out the extra cord and equipment, we can save lots of time at both ends of the launch. Jim Moe’s new pad design worked wonderfully at recent launchs and promises to be a stable platform for the increasing numbers of bigger rockets we’re seeing.
And as another reminder, NAR now requires electronic recovery deployment for any CTI Vmax motors. This will be an ongoing restriction until CTI can define and correct the matter.
SET UP: Will be 09:00. We will fly when we are ready, and fly until 16:00.
LOCATION: Tuckahoe Turf Farm / 305 Hubbard Road / Berwick / Maine
Hopefully we will be welcoming some new flyers from the UNH Tech-Camp as this will be the first launch after the Tech-Camp closes for 2016.
We will have, Hamburgers, Hot Dogs, Soda, Water, Crisps, Watermelon, per usual. We should also have a vendor on site with motors, and other rocket goodies.
We have a New Big BIG High Power Rocket pad for all the “L” “N” “M” crowd to try out. We will also begin to Raffle off MMMSC Extension cords, as the decision has been made to switch to exact length runs of 16ga. White Lamp Cord to speed the set up and tear down and to lighten the load in the trailer. We will also be making the switch to Anderson Connectors on all points of connection.
NOTICE: AMW will be making an exchange of 38mm CTI motor parts or CTI motor tooling.
Forecast for Saturday and Sunday is for Rain and Thunderstorms through out both days. We have the UNH Tech-Camp for the next three weeks till the end of the month. So there may be an opportunity to fit another launch in say on the 16th so stay tuned.

We have several TARC teams in the Maine, New Hampshire, and Massachusetts that are looking for flight time for practice launches and qualifying flights. I am not going to officialaly schedule launches for “X” day as the weather is to big a player in the equation. But would rather go weekend by weekend if you need flight time.
