I just went to the website for NSL 2009. It is 11 degrees and snowing. Are you nuts? Who would ever go to a place like that? I just went outside to clean up. I am wearing a T-shirt and shorts. It was slightly cool. But then, it is winter. And what the heck is beerlofting? Why would you want to loft beers--do you shoot at them? I prefer to drink beer. I must admit that the Foster's 25 ounce cans make great targets--I prefer the green cans (bitter).
Number 1!, Number 1!. Please forgive my ignorance. I am currently building a Hyper-Loc 1600 for the Arizona Rocket gathering next month. It can get rather warm at Rainbow Valley--even in February. I will now design the payload section to hold securely--at least one can of Foster's bitter--better make that two. I think that beerlofting has the potential to invigorate High Power rocketry. Do you think that I should insulate the payload section?The "art" of beer lofting:
1.Placing a few frosty ones in the payload of large rockets, to refresh one on the long walk back during retrieval.
Yeah, its rare to have snow in may in WI, but not unheard of. Temp is usually decent in late May, which you'll be glad of since the recovery hikes can be grueling at Bong. No mosquitoes yet either. The water hazards will be melted, so bring your waders...Sure, but it's in Wisconsin!!!
This needs to be on the NSL 2009 website somewhere.The L1 build and fly is by invite only.
Have you heard from anyone in Michiana Rocketry? We definitely want to participate.Some of the NAR section leaders who I have invited have yet to respond.
Other clubs want to put together multiple teams.
I hope I don't have to drag people kicking and screaming to do this. It is going to be fun.
It all depends on Mother Nature.Yikes! Is it really that wet over there?
I suppose a lot of guys want to get in on something like this.This needs to be on the NSL 2009 website somewhere.

Yes, the fee covers all three nights at the group site.Camping at the group site is listed as $40 for a family site. Is that inclusive of all three days? Does it include the registration fee that the state parks want to add on as well?
