Prefect Bill Wagstaff, Secretary/Treasurer Teresa Wagstaff and Member at Large Glenn Mitchell attended the Upstate Research Rocketry Festival at Potter, NY from June 9 – 11. The weather was fairly good, with only a limited amount of haze remaining after the smoke from Canadian forest fires the previous week. A certain amount of haze can be seen in the photo above. The group’s flights were entirely successful, boding well for their planned pilgrimage to Wisconsin’s Richard Bong State Recreational Area for LDRS 41 in a few weeks.

Photos and video from April 12th Launch

A great day for a launch! We had warm weather and light winds for the morning, at least. The grass is low and recovery was easy this time of year. Photos:

ORG Launch April 12 2015

A beautiful spring day with light winds in the morning. It's a great time to launch because the grass is low and recovery is much easier.

Launch today, March 29th, 2015, a success!

Today was a nice spring day. Although it started out cold we had bright sun and light winds. We had a good turn out with the usual hardy Winter launchers present.

A few interesting events, as with every launch, Greg P almost lost his postage stamp rocket in a tree, John C has a nice CATO which we caught on camera, and Bill G has a nice new zipper on his LOC IV.
