OCTOBER SKY FESTIVAL Club Launch!
!LOW POWER!
OCTOBER 19, 2019
THE 10TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE MOVIE: OCTOBER SKY

We will be supporting the October Sky Festival and holding a club launch, Saturday, October 19, 2019.

If you would like to help, set up will be at  9:00 am.  The opening ceremonies are at 10:00 am.  MC2 is providing technical support, rockets, kits and launch equipment. 

The MC2 Club low/mid power Launch will follow the opening ceremony.  We will launch from 10:00 am until 5:00 pm. (or until it starts raining).  The rain is not scheduled to hit until late according to the locals, so the show will go on.

The event will take place at Arrowhead Park, 419 Kingston Ave. Oliver Springs, TN, 37840.  There will be plenty of food for sale and they have indoor restroom facilities.You cannot see the field from the road, so use your GPS.  In fact, you may want to go old school and print out the directions before you leave.  You will be in the mountains.

This is low power only and you would be pushing it with mid-power unless you are using a streamer, small parachute and/or your rocket is heavy.  We are launching from a baseball field next to a railroad track and a baby mountain.  A reasonable limit would be no higher than 800 feet.

Everyone is welcome!

EVERYONE IS WELCOME!  

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.  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.

This launch, like all club launches is open to the public.  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.

Below is a video recorded by SoAR member, Lucius Williams IV summarizing the event and documenting the successful Level One Certification flight of Lee Childers.

As always, SPECTATORS ARE WELCOME !  WATCHING IS FREE!
