We have a great launch. Thanks too all of those who attended. Beautiful Weather. I flew my 3D printed rocket to around 5000-6000 feet and low it on a G. I build another andI flew it to 4000-5000 feet on an F and got it back.

We have some changes to announce. Masks will still be required on the flight line but we will no longer require the COVID-19 waiver.
Everyone must complete the Landowner Release Waiver ONCE each calendar year. You can find that form on our site at http://rocketrysouthcarolina.org/index.php...
From Bobby Weatherford:
I have some bad news to share. Unfortunately, we have to cancel the June launch. I received a call from the land manager this morning. Due to the rain we've received the past couple of weeks, the relatively mild temperatures, the area has been inundated with various grass and human flesh loving insects.
The land manager has no choice but to bring in a crop duster filled with "potent" insecticide to manage the insect population and hopefully save their crop. The spraying will occur on Saturday and Sunday on both the Dazell and Rembert fields. He advises we should not be there during or after the spraying due to potential harm to animals, including humans.
The leadership team discussed moving the launch to another weekend. However, most of us already have commitments through the end of June. This means we shall have our inaugural launch on 10-11 July.
We look forward to seeing you folks on the field then.
