    Note: To get a good start on this we will be setting up on Friday April 20th starting around 3 pm EST so if you can come and help out this will be much appreciated. If the launch is a GO, I am planning to meet at the field Friday April 20th around 3 pm with trailer to start getting our field set up.

    We are scheduled on having the launch unless something drastic happens to the weather, in case of bad weather the Rain date would be the following weekend, so always check the website before you plan to make the trip down. Due to a lot of people traveling and the logistics needed for the event we will post if the MIDWESTBLAST3 launch planned is a GO or NO-GO by April 18th the Wednesday before launch.

    We can always use volunteers to help in setting up, breaking down, and work the LCO and RSO positions for this launch, Remember we all need to help share the responsibility of running the club.

    So, let’s all come on out and have a great time.

    Yes, we are a go for MIDWESTBLAST3 this weekend. The weather looks pretty good and getting better. Supposed to be a very sunny day on this Friday so hopefully will dry the field out even more before the weekend, I did have some one check the field a few days ago and looked okay from the report I received. But plan on getting a little dirty at MWB3 (alright u know what I mean). Just finished prepping my rockets, hope to get in a few flights over the busy weekend. Of course bringing my 6 inch diameter blue formula 150 rocket with L900DM motor.

    We should be having at least 3 vendors, Impulse buys, Countyline hobbies, and yes the Wildman Rocketry. So you should be able to get any motors on site, from A's to N's. As well as kits and other rocket related items. Also don't forget on Saturday our famous Pig roast will be back again. Hope to see you there!

    I'm working on getting my rockets ready for the weekend and I seem to have misplaced the stainless washer for my loki 54mm motor. If anyone has one I can borrow for a couple of flights, please bring it along, I'll buy you a beer!
