We have a launch scheduled for 10 September 2016 at the Harvard Turf Farm (formerly Tuckahoe Turf Farm) in Berwick, Maine. Set up will start about 9:30 and we'll be flying as soon as everything is ready to go. The plan is to fly until 4 PM.

What are you planning on flying?

Robert and Gloria will be there covering all your AMWProX needs. If you're looking for anything in particular, check with them ahead of time. Remember to bring your 38 mm CTI reloads so Robert can check your delay grain holder. If it's from the bad batch, he'll replace it at no charge to you. Whether you are going to fly them that day or not, bring them along so they can be inspected and, if necessary, replaced.

If you're going for your Level 1 or Level 2 certification, please let us know ahead of time and have all of your paperwork ready along with your NAR card to show your active status. If you've recently joined or certified at a level but don't have your updated card yet, bring your temporary card and/or a print out from the national website to show you are allowed to fly the level you'd like to fly. If you're going for your Level 3 certification, you should know enough to have all your ducks in a row well before you get to the field.

If you're going to need the 1515 rail, give us a heads-up about that, too; if we don't have to lay out the extra cord and equipment, we can save lots of time at both ends of the launch. Jim Moe's new pad design worked wonderfully at recent launchs and promises to be a stable platform for the increasing numbers of bigger rockets we're seeing.

And as another reminder, NAR now requires electronic recovery deployment for any CTI Vmax motors. This will be an ongoing restriction until CTI can define and correct the matter.

Keep an eye on this thread, the club website and Facebook page to see if there will be any issues with the weather.

The weather is looking unpleasant as the day goes on. Lots of help setting up will get us going quicker but we probably won't make it to the end of the scheduled time.
Show up; fly early.

Due to illness, Robert and Gloria will not be able to attend. Drinks will be available but not food.
If you're looking for a particular motor, you may have to ask around of the other flyers.
