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.
It is with great sadness that I must report the passing of Bill Spadafora, President of CMASS. Bill did have some heath problems, but was upbeat and positive about the prognosis for them, so this was unexpected and a shock to us all. We will share other information as it becomes available to us.
Visitation and funeral times are on the CMASS.org site.
We will be holding a launch on 9 May, 2015! This will be a FULL Launch, LPR, MPR, and HPR. Set up is at 09:00, Launch 10:00-16:00. We will have burgers, hotdogs, soda, water, and BIRTHDAY CAKE!
PLEASE REMEMBER YOUR SUNSCREEN SPF 50, HATS, AND SUNGLASSES!

Due to circumstances and personal obligations, I am going to have to scrub the scheduled April club launch, and truly the field by the 18th. would most likely be a mud fest. So we might reboot in early May if the field is ready.
The launch for MIT will still go in the first part of April, but that is a one pad, one shot deal just for contest purposes.
