    This is modeled on the Bike Commuting Mileage Thread I am involved with over on bikeforums. Here's the links to The 2015 Newton Tally Thread, the 2016 version, the 2017 edition, and the 2018 thread. (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 still in the People's Republic of China, and since it's now 2019 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 2019 is a heck of a lot better than last year!

    Happy 2019!
    Jim

    Sorry. Font choices do appear using Safari on iOS. However selecting what text you want is frustrating.

    The first launch at Pegasus field in Research park of 2019, and the last launch ever as Blue Origin breaks ground and starts construction for their Vulcan factory. It is an end of an era for low/mid flying and TARC practice in Huntsville.

    I made a significant change here. If everyone hates it, let's discuss and we can put it back. I changed the motor designators from the maximum TI to the minimum. I launched an I and an L this weekend, and it looked weird that I was not ABOVE the L-Motor designator. That was because my I plus my L did not pass the TI for a full L. But to my way of thinking, I should be sitting between L and M.

    I agree with your change. I though it should have been that way from the beginning.

    We did our first launch of the year with TRA/PHX last weekend, with five research motors. One static ground test of the "Sponge Bob sparky" we made with Pat G. in Texas last October. It was an M1381 in a Loki 76/6000 casing.
    Sharon flew two research motors, made with her new SS-2 formula (Sharon's Sparkler two) with great results, a K511 in a Loki 54/1600 casing and an L558 SS-2 in a 75mm two grain casing.
    My two flights were both using our tried and true "Not Your Wimpy Red" formula. First was a K691 in a Loki 54/1600 casing and the second was a K928 in a 54/1800 casing.

    Finally got to launch this weekend. We had a couple hour window in October and haven't had a launch at BattlePark until this last weekend. It was very muddy, but the weather was great. I got two EX motors flown in rockets that have been prepped since last July, one K and one M. Also thru up an AT H123W for one last flight. Got home and washed the mud off the truck and then shoveled the mud off the driveway with a snow shovel before washing the driveway. It was a "little" muddy, but I was the transport to the away cell so got to play in the mud more than most.

    Weather let up and HARA had a beautiful flying day at the Jackson 5 field (Jackson County Rd 5, fyi)
    Many certification flights from UAH and Auburn Student Launch teams (and other flyers), and an unfortunate shred of an L3 attempt.
    Brought 11 prepped rockets, only flew 3 as I ended up walking around talking to folks and then took over LCO to give our club president a break.

    Got in the 50th flight on my L2 rocket Grapeshot! I first flew it in 2009 on a K695R. Today it flew on a K675 Skidmark to 7047 ft. If I get a couple done in my build pile, I may retire it.
