As a new rocket club in a populated state like Rhode Island is a fantastic chance to outreach to the schools and youth clubs, MMMSC is calling our March 22nd launch as ether it will still be real cold or real muddy still. MMMSC invites all its membership to buddy up, car/van pool up and head to RI on the 22nd.
CATO is providing launch equipment and support so it should be well attended by their membership. CMASS is also going to be joining in this launch. All in all a good chance to ware you colors and meet friends old and new.
The launch site is the turf field off Peckham Farm Rd. in Kingston, RI. It is off Rt. 138 and across the street from the URI Ryan Center. From the SatMap it looks like you can take interstate 95 south and get off at an exit for 138 and head east.
I will update with more info as I get it.
Please hit the PayPal button and donate what you can we need $2,500 for trailer and registration. We are gaining but need another $1,600 to make it happen.
IF the waiver is back by the 28th(I believe it will be) On Sat March 1st. we will have a sparkies launch at Tuckahoe Turf Farm. 10/10 rail and .25 x6 only.
This will be real informal, No Cards, small PA, no food or Potty, just fun! Parking will be across the street at the farm office/garage lot, if road is not open.
All NAR rules will be followed…..
Got a call from FAA, the MMMSC waiver renewal is packaged and up to Boston for approval.
This has been a good winter for snow, and it has been cold. So there is hope it was cold long enough to kill off the nasty ticks. The schedule is up for all to see, but we are at the mercy of the weather. MMMSC hopes we can use the dates posted.
Remember your sun screen!
Have a look and if you spot any errors let me know. Paper work was faxed to FAA for approval. If you look at the Facebook side bar you will see the field covered in snow.
The deadline for TARC is NOV. 30 2013

This will be a Fast Launch! All Sparkies as fast as we can get the pads loaded and emptied. From 11:00 to 13:00 we will get as many rockets up as we can. 1010, 1515 and .25 x 6 will be set up. Robert and Gloria will be up for this one their calender says 11/21 but they intended 12/21. So dress warm!
Next years schedule will be up soon and so will the dates for build nights at my workshop.
This Sat. there will be an altitude raffle, whoever guesses closest to the altitude reached by the Great Pumpkin will win a Mad Cow rocket kit donated by Jason and AMW.
Dress warm and hope for a warm day see you all on Sat.
The offerings to the rocket gods must be paying off, because we had a great day flying last Saturday. I wrote up a quick summary on the CMASS site (our sister club in Massachusetts). Click here to read more.
