This weekend LUNAR (Livermore Unit of the NAR) has a launch scheduled. Looks like the weather is going to hold for it. Wow, this will be my first launch attendance.

Well I have six, Low Powered rockets built, 99%, they even have paint on them (poorly done, but painted all the same) and not one completed ready to fly. Since they were mostly Estes Rockets I decided to change the recovery systems and have not gotten everything yet that I need, like steel fishing leader or Kevlar cords, so no go, they will not fly.

Thats ok, because I will learn a lot by attending and probably feel more comfortable when I do show up with rockets ready to fly as well as motors. :D

For those here is the Central area of California, that are going to attend I look forward to perhaps getting to meet you.

I started flying with a club at the end of last season and it was *much* more fun than on my own. You get a real nice sense of pride when someone comments on your model or comes up to you after the flight to talk about it.

Plus you can see how other rocketeers do things and you can spend the whole afternoon watching rockets fly.

Have fun!

I don't know if the weather in our area can get much better than its been the last week or so. I just hope it holds through Saturday. Come on out if any are done or not, if not you can walk around asking questions like me. :)

Thanks Mike, I figure I will ask a lot of questions and learn a little (old slow brain) I hope :D Really looking forward to this.

I've been a member of LUNAR (and BAYNAR) for a few years now.
I plan to be there for Saturday's launch. Looks like I need to renew my
membership too.

Alright a couple of folks from here will be there. Keep your eyes open for a fat old man with long grey hair that looks totally lost ... it will probably be me. :)

In case you aren't on the LUNAR e-mail list, the president of the
club issued an announcement that the LUNAR launch has been postponed
one week to Saturday, Jan. 24. See you then.

By the way, if you are a member of LUNAR and you aren't on the LUNAR
e-mail list, I highly suggest you join.

Its kind of complicated: The launch for the 17th is canceled ... rescheduled for the 24th. Now the 24th depends on a couple of things.

1. If it rains this weekend, then the 24th is canceled because the soccer tourniment for this weekend will move to that one.

2. If the wind blows or the rain falls on the 24th it will be cancelled.

Guess a person won't know until the 22nd for sure. I have to be gone for the 24th so thats out.

Field will be closed then for some time and if I understand it all correct the next launch will be the first day of Memorial Day weekend. :confused:
