    Hey everyone... Making an early announcement. Midwest Power 17, hosted by QCRS, will be held Friday, November 15th through Sunday, November 17th, 2019.

    We've got a waiver to 15,000' AGL and launch under Tripoli EX rules. We are both a Tripoli and a NAR club, and absolutely everyone is welcome to come and fly! Weather permitting, we'll setup on Thursday, fly from 9a-5p Friday thru Sunday, host a banquet on Saturday evening, and just generally have a great time.
    Our launch site and map can be found on our website QCRS.us. There are two hotels in Princeton, IL, that we usually fill that weekend: the Days Inn and the AmericInn (banquet is held at Days Inn).

    This is always a great event, and QCRS looks forward to hosting everyone again this year! Let us know what you're planning on bringing and flying.

    More information will be posted here, on our website, and in our club newsletter as details develop.
    If you have any questions, send them to MWP@QCRS.us.

    The year is 2019, and the world is dark and full of misery. People have lost all hope, and feel aimless; without any motivation. They drag themselves from day to day, hoping for only a glimpse of joy.

    Nearing thanksgiving, the people feel they have nothing to look forward to. The dreams of their elders have faded. The stories that were once told about a hero fall into the sands of time. The name, the deeds- all lost.

    The people in their sadness drag themselves to Midwest Power. They are wishing for just a small experience of happiness. But not even the usually jovial Wildman can dry their tears and raise their hearts.

    All of a sudden- there is a murmur among the crowd. Something is happening!!!!

    Then, a mighty GOBBLE is heard across the land! Could it be? Has the hero returned?

    Indeed, it has! A flame shoots out, and from the smoke and fire, like the phoenix of old, the turkey rocket rises in the distance!

    Forged by the mighty smith Cayemberg, from the fires of Sheboygan, the bringer of light has returned!

    And there was much rejoicing.

    Registration isn’t open yet. Check back here for an announcement when it’s live. You do not need to be a member, but we send out members only announcements and launch updates via email. It’s always encouraged to join the club. Club membership keeps us a club

    Camping is allowed. The larger campers are usually staggered off to the right hand side of the launch. I would just recommend talking to one of the launch organizers before staking your claim. We will be on site Thursday for set up and should be able to get you in the right direction

    My idea of camping is no room service.

    @RCGuyGR - I would suggest joining Tripoli or NAR before the launch- depending on which one you want to cert with. I'm pretty sure you could join either at the launch before your L1, but it'd be easier to have that out of the way.

    Where are you located?

    I'd like to attend - but have to see when the two weddings we are attending are... Hopefully it's a bookend.
