    This is modeled on the Bike Commuting Mileage Thread I was involved with over on bikeforums. Here's a link to The 2015 Newton Tally Thread, the 2016 version, and the 2017 edition (if you missed them).

    This is NOT a competition. This is a convenient way for our members to keep track of the number of Newtons we've burned as a community, with the goal of seeing how large of a rocket we could have launched if we had pooled our resources together.

    How it works. One person starts. They write their name down, followed by a space, a series of periods, another space, then post their total newtons burned this year. Inside parenthesis you can add optional information such as HPR level certification, number of motors burned, number of launches/static tests done, and team affiliation (such as a TARC team)

    The next person copies the list, and only if they have burned more newtons adds their name above the previous entry (then the periods, then the total newtons). If they burned less, their name goes below. Please note: Instructions on keeping the list aligned are provided below.

    Say that a 3rd person has burned more than the first, but less than the second. They first copy the list, then sandwich their name in (with the periods, and total newtons).

    When a person has burned more newtons than their own previous record, they copy the list, and move their name according to where they now stand, and update their total.

    Example:
    I'll start the list. After my name, I add a space, a series of periods, another space, and my total Ns. Additional (Optional) information such as your HPR certification level, number of motors burned, and number of flights can go inside a set of parenthesis. I've also switched the font to "Courier New" to keep things easy to align.

    K'Tesh ....................................... 0.0 Ns (L1, 0 motors, 0 flights)



    Then TopRamen joins in. He's burned more than me. So, he copies the list, then adds his name and score above mine.

    TopRamen ................................. 5.0 Ns (1 motor, 1 flight)
    K'Tesh ....................................... 0.0 Ns (L0, 0 motors, 0 flights)


    You'll notice that we're now not *quite* aligned... So, TopRamen needs to change the font of the list to "Courier New", and maybe change the number of periods to get us aligned.

    TopRamen ..................................... 5.0 Ns (1 motor, 1 flight)
    K'Tesh ....................................... 0.0 Ns (L0, 0 motors, 0 flight)



    There... That's better.

    Next comes along Rex R, and he has 2.5 Ns. He copies the most recent copy of the list, and sandwiches in his name, number of newtons, and the other (optional) info, then changes the font back to "Courier New".

    TopRamen ..................................... 5.0 Ns (1 motor, 1 flight)
    Rex R ........................................ 2.5 Ns (L2, 1 motor, 1 flight)
    K'Tesh ....................................... 0.0 Ns (L1, 0 motors, 0 flights)



    Oh, but I finally launch a few, and now I've got 7.0 Ns. So, I copy the list, find my new space, and update my score.

    K'Tesh ....................................... 7.0 Ns (L1, 3 motors, 3 flights)
    TopRamen ..................................... 5.0 Ns (1 motor, 1 flight)
    Rex R ........................................ 2.5 Ns (L2, 1 motor, 1 flight)



    Now, let's say that a team effort would like to add their Newtons. I'd propose that they use the tag "Team" then the name of the project (say TARC) and location (if applicable) (e.g. Team Cineroc). Team members shouldn't claim team acquired Newtons as their own, but can note them with their totals.

    Team Cineroc ................................ 75.0 Ns (11 motors, 11 flights)
    K'Tesh ....................................... 7.0 Ns (L1, 3 motors, 3 flights)(+75.0 Ns, Team Cineroc)
    TopRamen ..................................... 5.0 Ns (1 motor, 1 flight)
    Rex R ........................................ 2.5 Ns (L2, 1 motor, 1 flight)


    And so on. Just remember to copy the most recent copy of the list. Please add additional periods to your (and other's totals) to help keep the list readable.

    Like last year, I've also added the NS of the HPR motors from the beginning. So if your first launch this year is a HPR, just sandwich your name in at the appropriate spot.

    To keep the list in order:
    Highlight, and copy the latest version of the list. Then paste it into a new post, you will need to highlight the entire text (I right click and "select all"), and then find the "font" drop down menu.
    Next, after clicking the drop down menu, you'll see a list of potential fonts (and almost completely hidden at the bottom of the first view you get of the list is "Courier New"
    Select "New Courier " and the list aligns.
    Make your changes, and save the post, and the list is much more readable.​

    Of course, this thread depends completely on the honesty of the people involved, and as there's no prizes, there's no point in lying.

    Now Newton once again needs to get burned. So, let's get started. And since I'm currently in the People's Republic of China, and since it's now 2017 for me, we can go ahead and get started. However, I don't know when I'll be able to launch again. Let's hope that 2017 is a heck of a lot better than last year!

    Happy 2017!
    Jim

    Had the first launch of the year at BattlePark. Windy and cold. I got in one flight, just because I couldn't spend two days there without flying something.

    Lovely day yesterday in the Seattle area, and WAC had a launch. I put up 10 flights on motors ranging from 1/4A (I made one of the Estes Christmas tree ornaments flyable) to a baby G (G88 Smoky Sam in my Mega Der Red Max).

    Igniters didn't want to work in the cold.

    Are you sure it wasn't the batteries that didn't want to work? The difference between 70 deg and 20 deg is only 50. At the temp the igniters burn at, that little bit of difference shouldn't be noticed at all.

    Doubt it, I tried e-matches first (comes with CTI load) but they didn't work so I got a quick burst and that finally worked.

    Flew a 3" AMRAAM on a CTI G68Wh and an Estes MIM104 Patriot on a C6-5 as part of a drag race. Gotta love CTI for prepping in the cold!

    In an attempt to keep better track of my flights, I'm posting on a monthly basis. Sharon and I went to three launches this month, the first was on the first of January, we call it NYE. I flew 6 class 1 rockets (no HPR waiver), burned 9 motors for a total of 502.8 Ns. Second launch was at SSS where I flew three rockets, 4 motors for 1822.7 Ns. Last weekend was the TRA/PHX launch where I made 9 flights, burned 11 motors for 12609.2 Ns. Totals for this month are 18 flights, 24 motors, for a total of 14934.7 Ns.
