December Holiday Launch

Greetings TRAPHX!

Here’s quick reminder about some special things happening at the next launch, being held December 3rd through the 5th. First off, those of you who are good with numbers may have deduced it’s a THREE-DAY LAUNCH! The waiver will open 9am to 5pm on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. This opens us up for exciting possibilities like Wayne and Sharon running out of motors or James Donald launching a rocket on a Saturday.

ALSO! There will be a pot-luck on Saturday night. Bring your favorite dish to share with your fellow rocketeers. Keep in mind that there will not be power for things like crock-pots or margarita blenders, so plan accordingly.

Last, but not least, we will help kick off the holiday season by having a camper decorating contest. Festoon your rig with all your favorite lights, inflatable contraptions and tinsel-y bits. You will be judged in multiple categories and there will be prizes. Stay tuned for more info on rules, categories and prizes.

If you have any questions about his or anything else club related, please use our new-ish email address- traphxrocketclub@gmail.com

Hope to see everyone out at Eagle Eye!

October Launch is a go!

The waiver notifications have been made for the October launch and we are go!

There seems to have been some confusion about whether or not there will be a potluck at this launch being the club’s October Skies launch. Currently there is no potluck planned. This could be entirely due to the new board (namely me) not remembering what all happens at the October launch. My apologies if there were any misunderstandings.

There are more festivities planned for the three day launch on December 3-5, including a potluck and camper Christmas lights decorating contest.

We’ve got some new things in store calendar-wise this season. Our normal October launch kicks off the season, but the November and December launches have been combined into a three-day launch on December 3rd through 5th. We’re also really excited about having a New Year’s Eve/Day launch on December 31st through January 2nd. These launches help cut down in the congestion of launches that fall right before some major holidays, as well as make for some fun new experiences out at Eagle Eye. Expect more news to follow about pot lucks, camper decorating contests and the old board dressing as Santa and the elves.

A official “season starter” email will be sent shortly, but we wanted to get the schedule circulated for your planning convenience.
