Launch announcement

High Power******CLUB LAUNCH******High Power
EVERYONE IS WELCOME!
December 14th 2019
Our Second High Power Launch in two years!

Burman Farms, 2830 Locust Grove Road, Hopkinsville, KY. 
                                                           (See map below)





MC2 will hold two high power launches to close 2019.  They will be held at our winter field at Burman Farms, 2830 Locust Grove Road, Hopkinsville, KY.  The ceiling is 9500 feet.  This is military airspace so there will be NO exceptions to the altitude. Set up will be at 8:00 am, a mandatory safety briefing will be at 9:00 am.  Flights will end at 4:00pm.  Please help us breakdown so that the equipment will be stowed before the rapidly approaching sunset.

Our launches are open to the public. In addition to our club's members, many rocket clubs from universities throughout the Southeast and Mid-west fly with us as well! This means several spectacular flights involving large rockets! Whether you are a flyer or a spectator,  a novice or a Born Again Rocketeer, our launches are always a lot of fun! 

You do not need any experience to fly with us, however only NAR or Tripoli members with proof of current certification will be allowed to fly High Power.  If you require assistance we will arrange for a member to assist you. Members fly free at club launches, all others must pay a daily launch fee of $5.00 per flyer.

Newbies, do not worry, we will give you plenty of support and will even loan you a rocket to fly!

We will have enough pads to cover low through high power.  MC2 owns 8 foot 1010 and 1515 rails.  In addition, we have pads that will hold rods from 1/8th to 1/4 inch. 

Please join our Google Group as any changes of cancellations due to weather or field conditions will be announced there.
