A note from the Skybusters President:

To All Fellow Rocketeers,

May 02 AND Sunday, May 03, 2009 come back to Northern Ohio where it all started! The Skybusters Rocketry Club, NAR #535, AND the Northern Ohio Tripoli Rocketry Association (NOTRA - TRA #003) are pleased to announce the NINTH Great Lakes Regional Meet Revisited Launch. A first ever "UFO Fly-In" is the featured event plus we will have a plethora of rocket raffle prizes (We are still accepting donations/ideas for prizes). Both low power multi-pad rails will be set up to host Scout groups and the like, and for competition flying (TBA).

Flying times are 9AM to 4PM daily.

There will be incentives for Range Safety Officer, Launch Controller, and Pad Manger shifts (2 hour shifts). We will also need help with registration and raffle ticket sales.

Setup will be on Friday May 1st at 12PM.

SEE YOU AT THE LAUNCH!!!

Dan Vento
President
Skybusters NAR 535

PS. Get those flying saucers, alien spacecraft, and otherworldly objects ready to fill the sky over Amherst at approximately 1:30 pm each day.

These rocket meets were started in the 1970s here in Northern Ohio and eventually turned into the first LDRS launches which were held in Medina, OH. The GLRMR-IX will be held at our Amherst, OH field.

We have a large, flat farm to use with a FAA waiver to one mile. Flights thru "L" motors are possible. We are HyperTEK, RATT Works, Sky Ripper and CONTRAIL Hybrid equipped. Porta-Johns will be on site. There is a SUBWAY restaurant just up the road at Rt. 60, or BYOF & Drink (No alcohol during launch hours).

I got a few photo's from yesterdays launch, it was kinda muddy in the morning but dried out fairly well by the afternoon and I had a great day of flying. First I put up my modified Yank Mystic Buzz on a I357.

Next it was my 3" IQSY Tomahawk again with a I357.

The recovery area.

Fred Ziegler's upscale Goblin (I think) on a nice flight.

Art Uptons Aerotech Arreaux on a G something flight.

Don't know the name of this rocket but it flew beautifully.

On the way down.

I got about 50 shots like this, it was a guys L2 attempt on a J350.

Keep the photos coming!

Saturday's weather was kind of windy. The field was muddy. Is rained the night before. Sunday on the other hand was fantastic. Great weather and the field dried out.

I was able to put up two flights of my HV Arcas on Sunday. Each flight was on a G40-7. Those were the last flights of the launch on Sunday.

Was a good weekend.
