DUE TO WEATHER


When:  Our Rain  Date is March 2, 2019.  

The March 16th launch will occur as scheduled.

Where: The launch will take place at our new field at Burman Farms, near Hopkinsville, KY. This is a low/mid power launch only as we do not yet have a waiver. Launch site: 2830 Locust Grove Rd, Hopkinsville, KY 42240 (https://goo.gl/maps/tN1BZu9kr252)

Schedule:

9:00 am : Launch area and classroom set up

10:00 am: Safety Briefing.

10:15 am: Flying begins

4:00 pm: Range breakdown and clean up (so that we may pack up before dark).

This is simply a launch. You can start flying right after the safety briefing!

Don't forget, that we now have access to a building for warming, restroom and dining. Thank you to Mark Burman, the Burman Family and MC2 member James Hudspeth for their generosity and hospitality!

Winter is a crazy time so please keep an eye on the weather. Any call to cancel will be made no later than COB Friday before the launch. We will always attempt to work out an alternate date at the owners discretion. Any possible alternate date will be announced as soon as possible.

Do postponements, changes or cancellations take you by surprise?  Please join our Google Group for the latest information.  It is always updated first.

P.S. We continue the search for summer launch sites in the Tennessee/Kentucky so that we may serve a wide group of interested flyers. If you know of a possible field, do not contact the landowner yourself unless they are a close friend or relative. Send the information to us at mc2admin@mc2rocketry.com. One of the officers will contact the landowner.





Burman Farms Launch Site




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.

HIGH POWER CERTIFICATION

Anyone seeking to certify High Power at a launch should please place an inquiry in our contact form or email either our Tripoli or NAR advisors in advance so to insure that personnel and documents are available.  NAR High Power Level 1 and 2 certification applications and Level 2 exams will be available at the field.  Certification applicants please check in at the RSO tent.

As always, SPECTATORS ARE WELCOME !  WATCHING IS FREE!
