NATIONAL SPORT LAUNCH 2016!!!!!!!!
MAY 28TH - 30TH, 2016
MANCHESTER SOD FARM
As many of you know, the administrative responsibilities for Southern Thunder alternate annually between MC2 and HARA.  This is HARA's year to administer the launch. However, in lieu of Southern Thunder in June, there will be a National Association of Rocketry (NAR)  National Sport Launch (NSL) at the Manchester site on Memorial Day Weekend. As with Southern Thunder, both clubs will be working together to make this event a success. Click on the link below to connect to the NAR's NSL site.

Southern Thunder 2015  

The following is the August 8th, 2015 report prepared by our President Chris Dondanville, summarizing Southern Thunder 2015.  I apologize for the delay!   __CG

Well,  better late than never!  I finally got the second batch of flight cards out of the trailer at the MC2 launch today.  Below is the total.  Just under 400 flights over 2 days.  You can see that the low power skewed heavily to the first day since the weather turned out MUCH better on Sunday for the big flights.  B’s and C’s ruled the weekend with E’s not far behind with an 85%/15% low power to high power split.  Thanks to everyone who pitched in to help.  I am sure that the lower volume helped us remain efficient, but I am still getting compliments on how smoothly we all had things running this year.   Here is to next year and the NSL 2016 at Southern Thunder!
