Ready for BALLS 23?

Thanks to all who attended the April launch.  The weather didn’t cooperate Saturday, but Sunday gave us decent weather and good flights.

As the Phoenix daytime temperatures rise into the 100’s it is time to move inside and begin preparations for BALLS 23!  Don’t forget to share your projects and travel plans with your TRAPHX club members in the forums.

See you in September!

April is here, are you ready for the last TRAPHX launch till Balls?

Don’t miss the April launch @ Eagle Eye site.  This will be the last Tripoli Phoenix launch before the 100+ degree summer weather shows up in May/June and takes some of the fun out of flying rockets in Arizona.  If you miss the April launch, you will have to wait till September when we venture to Blackrock for the BALLS launch, or October when we resume Arizona launching .

Check out the Eagle Eye launch site information here.

See you at the launch!

March ARG! Launch Cancelled!

I regret to inform everyone that, our efforts to get a waiver in place for the March Launch have been exhausted. Apparently, LA Center is not approving any rocketry waivers at this time; and our last ditch effort to get a waiver from Albuquerque Center for Eagle Eye in place for March fell through today.

Therefore, we are canceling ARG and the March Launch.

We are going to continue to work on getting the waiver for the Cypress site for the October launch. I am going to engage Tripoli National and Tripoli San Diego to determine what the issue is with LA Center.

The good news is, our April Launch will be at Eagle Eye and the waiver for 50,000 MSL is already approved!
