    Midwest Power 15 is right around the corner and the deadline for t-shirts is approaching fast. We need to have ALL pre-orders in by 10/18/17 at midnight. We will have very limited shirts for sale on site and they will ALL sell out before the end of the day on Saturday (They always do).

    Please get your pre-orders in and get registered.

    Looking forward to seeing you all there!!

    Missed it last year but it looks like I might have wifey talked into going time around!

    Probably just bringing Echo Charlie Four (WM Eagle Claw) for a low and slow on an AT 1706 motor...and maybe my AT Mirage but I think it's set up for only a 1/4 inch rod (my 1st "big" rocket that has still hasn't flown)...got 1/4" rods at MWP?

    Any one know how the crops are doing this year? Still had some corn up at MWP13.

    Looking at the flyers list, it looks like we have a cool guy visiting us for the first time from his Eastern environs, John Haught. Make sure we give him a hearty Midwest welcome!

    I haven't worn a dress in quite some time, but I guess as long as it doesn't make me look fat I'm game.
    This launch is sounding like a good time !!!

    Thinking about attending MWP for the first time. I read through the webpages and didn't see much info on the field layout. How many pads, alternating sides, parking, crops, mud? Thanks for any info!

    We park in the crop field just east of the road if (and only if) the weather allows. Otherwise, we park on the road itself. Chuck's drone footage from last year gives you a really good idea of the layout of the field, pads, away cell, parking, etc...

    Saturday October 14, Field conditions report.

    Was out at the field in the container and the Field looks great, all the corn is down and some beans remained.

    Lots and lots of wide open fields in just 3 weeks and counting.

    The skies will be filled with rockets taking to the skies and the smell of burnt AP.

    Anyone know when pre-registration closes?
    I'm sure it's here somewhere but I am not seeing it.
    Thanks

    Not too late for you fence-sitters to start those mutton chops. This is what Sabrina will be handing out at the banquet, to somebody other than Gus...

    And another trophy going to someone other than Gus. (Although statistically, as the defending champion, he could be taking it home.) Simple rules...

    • Open to all who flew in the MWP 7 (2009) drag race. Forget who that includes? See attached spreadsheet.
    • Must use original 3" Wildman as flown in 2009 with Aerotech K700 motor. Rockets available for inspection and weigh-in prior to flight.
    • Field limited to max of 8 on first come first served basis. (Together in one bank, so as not to adversely affect field ops. Planning Friday or Saturday, time TBD)
    • Togetherness is the theme. Motors will be built together, rockets recovered together.
    cheers.
