Launch was at the Sod Farm in Elizabethtown, KY. It was a partly cloudy calm day. The winds gust up to about 70 mph but were steady at 0 - 5 mph. The sun did make a short appearance every once and a while but it was overcast most of the day.
We had 5 fliers with 31 flights on 38 motors burned. The total impulse was 577.4 N-sec. (Aerotech I364FJ) .
Flyers and their Birds.
We had a new member join. Earl Branch from the Cincy area came down with his lovely wife Patty who was a godsend for recovery. She must have wore out her tennis shoes recovering all the rockets. She was a lot of fun to talk with too. I hope we have the honor of seeing you at the next launch.
Later in the afternoon we were suprised with the presence of George Gradl, one of the earlier BRS members. He brought his Rocket Vision Mach Buster and Estes Big Bertha. He also brought his lovely wife Judy who launched the last rocket of the day. Our next Sport launch is scheduled for July 13th at the Sod Farm .
Bring the kids too. We would enjoy having them launch with us.
Earl flew a few rockets with us using the smallest motor of E9. Welcome to BRS. We appreciate your membership and participation.
Earl brought a model from Mercury Engineering, the Hijacker which is the first model I have seen from this manufacturer. It is a sturdy looking model and Earl did a great job making it look good with a minimum application of paint. Unfortunely no one took pictures so it can not be seen on the web site yet. Hopefully he can bring it to the next launch and we can post pictures of it.
Earl assembled and launched his first aerotech RMS motor and it worked flawlessly. Great job. Earl it was great meeting you and learning another technique on finishing model rockets.
George it was great seeing you again after about 4 years, and I really enjoyed meeting your wife Judy. Glad you could get her to launch a model too.
Come and have fun.
Hope to see ya all then.
