Range is Clear! – This is a Heads up Flight!!!

  • Our waiver is good to go for the launch next weekend – Oct 22/23.
  • Being the first launch of the season – in classic TRAPHX style – there will be a Pot Luck on Saturday after the range closes….
  • Please bring something to share if you can – a dish, side dish, dessert or anything else ….
  • We may be short on tables for the pot luck so please consider loaning one of launch prep tables for the Pot Luck.

reply to this email if you can provide a table so we can be sure we will have enough

  • Scott will be picking up pre-order motors from AMW on Tuesday so Monday is the last day for you to preorder for delivery to the field.

Normally AMW would graciously provide their tables for the pot luck, but since they can’t make it, please try to provide a table and/or extra chairs to contribute to the “long banquet table” and/or food staging area.

Thanks!

October Launch!

Howdy TRAPHX!
The October Launch is rapidly approaching. Here are a few announcements to get you thinking about the first launch of the year. 
First off, there will be a potluck and community dinner Saturday night. The club will be hosting a hotdog bar with all the fixins, toppings and condiments. In addition, Kevin will be making carne adovada with all the burrito making bits and pieces. The club will also provide paper plates and utensils, as well table space to eat. We just ask that in true potluck fashion you bring a side, desert or other main dish to supplement the good time. Also probably a camp chair and an appetite.

 
Secondly, our rocket and motor vendor, Animal Motor Works will not be at the October Launch, as Gloria’s has family in town. If you need anything, please contact them ahead of time to place your order and I (Scott Wathey) will deliver it to you at the launch. Gloria will also be giving me a selection of cert motors to sell at the launch should the need arise. But if you need anything special, like an N sparky for a night launch, call and talk to them!


Night launch you say?!?!  Nope. No one said that. You’re imagining things. And especially not with a sparky N. That’s just bonkers. 


Truthfully, we are trying to arrange some night launches, but we’re still waiting on the finalized waiver for the whole of next year as our waiver paperwork expired at the end of last season. The paperwork was submitted and we’re still waiting to get the finalized Certificate of Authorization, which will spell out all the details, including night launches. They love to wait until the last minute, so stay tuned! 


Let someone on the board know if you have any questions! Either via the website comments under this post, the FaceBook page, or traphxrocketclub@gmail.com
Thanks for reading and see you out at Eagle Eye!
