Our next launch will be this weekend. We will be sharing the field with the American Chunker Team(Air Cannon Propelled PUMPKINS!) For Safety we will be setting up beside them and launching into the field.
AMW will be on site with the NEW trailer full of rocket goodies.

Monday the 13th. of July MMMSC worked for one day with two groups of 25 six and seventh grade girls to build a Flis Kits “Doo-Dad” rocket. MMMSC then Went back to UNH a couple of days later and did a quick LPR launch with the girls. It Was a very popular activity during the five day camp.
This past week(20-24) Kenn and Scott with the help of two very helpful camp counselors Kim(math/science teacher) and Dan(high school student). Have been working with eight students in the 8/9/10 grade level on a “Stability Of Flight Module” the students learned about CP and CG. As well as lots of other rocket building skills and tricks. Next week we will regroup with some old friends and some new friend and learn about TARC and Mid Power Rocketry (MPR).
The UNH Tech-Camp is also affording MMMSC many networking opportunities that we hope to take advantage of and welcome new NAR and Club members.
We have fog right down to the tree tops. The cloud floor would be the tree tops so HPR would be a NO GO. They are also forecasting thunderstorms by 14:00~15:00 so we will pass on that.
Our next scheduled launch is, 1 August 2015
CMASS will be in Acton on the 25th.
Sunday is predicted to be sunny and a good day for flying.
Animal Motor Works will be on site with the trailer full of Rocket goodies. AMW will also be doing the catering for this weekend.
We may also have some of the Tech-Camp participants joining us at the launch after they got a taste of rocketry at UNH this past week.
Apparently I have scheduled a launch (25 July) on the same day that CMASS will be in Acton! So to fix this we are going to slide back to 18 July at the end of the week of the first UNH Tech-Camp, MMMSC will be participating in. We will also add a launch on 1 August at the end of the two week UNH Tech-Camp, so that students that have just spent two weeks building rockets might want to see some bigger ones go up.
The UNH Tech-Camp students will be given a FREE LAUNCH PASS for the two launch dates to encourage them to attend a real launch.
Please join us for our June launch just before fathers day. We will be setting up at 09:00 and launching from 10:00 to 16:00. We will be at our launch field Tuckahoe Turf Farm, Berwick ME.
AMW will be on site with a new trailer full of rocket goodies.
It has been suggested that we all wear our club shirts to the funeral. I think it is a good idea, as it will let Bill’s widow know who knew Bill from rocketry and NAR.
