Hello All!!!

The web-site for AIRFest 28 has been posted and we are taking pre-registration NOW. http://www.kloudbusters.org/airfest/Default.aspx

Nothing of note has changed - same great waiver, awesome field, same friendly hosts, etc.. Make AIRFest 28 your rocketry destination for 2022. The Argonia Rocket Pasture is centrally located for everyone and we'll have some of the best rockets, best rocketeers, and major national vendors in attendance.

Book your hotels soon. The Anthony Cobblestone is still not in play so Harper or Wellington are your best bets after the small places fill up.

We've had to bump our pricing a little bit to cover known price increases, due mostly to fuel costs. Sorry about that.

A note about crops ... there will be soybeans in the fields immediately adjacent to the rocket pasture where there was milo last year. This is due to conservation crop rotation and should be easier to track rockets vs. the milo. My personal tactic is going to be to fly high and overfly the soybeans. As always, nearly all of the fields in our 8 nm radius, 50,000' waiver are being actively farmed and TRACKERS ARE YOUR BEST ALLY for recovering rockets in the crops. Many fields will be cultivated dirt at this time of year, but there's a chance you might land in a weedy pasture or waterway. Prepare now by acquiring a tracking system for your rockets.

Speaking of 50,000' waiver - if your planning on exceeding 23,000' you have to get your flight reviewed and approved ahead of time. Visit the web-site "Flyer Information" for the form. You'll need to get that submitted by August 1.

My kids are wanting to do NARAM this year, so that's where the budget is going. Yes, it is killing me a little.

"Volunteer request failed due to transaction error. Please try again later."

Anyways...registered and am really looking forward to this one.

Thanks for letting me know. I'll check into it and report back here.
 
Lance, Bob, & Crew,

  • I like to use bullet points; get over it! ;)
  • CANNOT wait to return to the Rocket Pasture...it's been far too long!
  • We'll have 3 generations of the family there. My oldest son is now M1 Junior L1 certified. If he is a minor but flies H-I motors, should I register him as a regular flyer?
  • Bob: the Phoenix is making the trip. Let's get the Kloudbusters Airshow Team together again!
  • I'll bring some Spotted Cow for Amy...and Bob...and Skippy.... Oh heck, I'll bring a pile of Spotted Cow. And maybe some cheese curds.

Phoenix? Fly the Phoenix? Well. . . . OK!
(I haven't checked but I know Jay is onboard! Doesn't take much for either of us to drag them out.)
Bring the hat!

If I recall correctly, you were going to bring a 3" rocket we came to a, for lack of a better word, gentleman's agreement on. At least I think it was you.

There may be a spoiler out there. I know where there is a brand new one ready to fly. Mine is still in the box though.
