    I don't know of any past clubs at all. I wonder if the new location of the Shaver Shop (Hillside mall) would put up a poster for us...

    October 5th - Allandale (Colwood) quarry location (weather/site development dependant)
    5th Oct 2019, 12:00pm-3:00pm

    Victoria Makerspace presents
    - Performance model rocketry - 12 rockets (1.9", 2.6" and 3" airframes)

    If there are any changes to location, I will update on the form by September 20th.
    I have spoken with the owner of the new BC Shavers Shop and he's going to help get the word out.

    I will be there! Any interest in a 1:100 scale Saturn V launch?

    Of course. I have 6 - AeroTech Fs if you need anything in the 29mm variety. So do you need a 1" rail or rod launcher?

    If the weather holds off for Saturday, October 5th then we'll be good to go. Spoke with the construction company operating in the quarry area and as long as they aren't operating then its golden. TriX doesn't operate on the weekend.

    More information later.

    Allandale launch kick off will occur in Colwood BC, at the old Allandale quarry location at noon on Saturday, October 5th. We have 12 rockets launching on a variety of motors. So far, the weather is forecasted to be promising for a launch. If you are in area, please feel to stop by.

    Saturn V not ready yet - no time this fall to work on it....

    But I do have some other models ready to go - Little Joe II, Interceptor E, maybe a 1:10 scale Black Brant IV.


    Just need a 3/16 rod....

    Ready to launch. The weather is improving today and we'll have the right conditions today.

    TC has issued a low ceiling alert stopping all launch activities. The forecast has been upgraded and the weather is too unstable for what is required for the launch.

    My appologies for the back and forth information.

    No worries - I was wondering about the low clouds. Hopefully soon!
