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:

Looks like a nice day. Bring boots since I suspect it will be muddy and we might even need sunscreen this afternoon!

See you at parking lot P1 at 9:50 AM.
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.
Check out the picture album. Here’s video of just a few launches:
