UPDATE (12/29/14): DUE TO THE FIELD BEING PARTIALLY FLOODED AND MORE RAIN ON THE WAY, THIS LAUNCH IS NOW CANCELED. STAY TUNED FOR POTENTIAL RESCHEDULE INFORMATION.
We’re BAAAaaaaaack!!! (12/8/14)
On January 3rd, from Noon until 5pm, TARA will be hosting a launch at the Gaskins farm near Nashville, GA! This will be TARA’s first launch in quite some time so we hope you’ll come join us! The waiver is 20,000 ft. MSL but please use your good judgment when choosing your motors. Research motors are welcome! The field is limited to ‘N’ impulse or lower, however, so if you have an ‘N’ impulse rocket you want to send up, please let us know by 12/27/14. Failure to do so may result in not being allowed you fly that rocket. Also, if you plan to fly a two-stage high power rocket, please let us know by this same date.
Summer Launches Winding Down – GRITS Winternationals Heating Up (9/10/14)
Now that both Freedom Launch and Air Fest are over, the big summer launches are in the books. That can only mean that it’s time to ramp up for our own GRITS Winternationals to be held Feb 27 – Mar 1, 2015 near Tifton, GA. But first, here’s some recent hi-lites for the reel:
Our own Chris Short with a Loki Research J-1127 flight at the recently held Air Fest 20 in Argonia, KS:
And here is Burl Finkelstein’s R2D2 flying on a K695 at the big labor day regional, Freedom Launch, in SC:
Southern Thunder is quickly approaching! Once again, HARA and MC2 have teamed up to bring us this great little regional launch. This year it will take place June 21-22 at the usual spot in Manchester, TN. For more information, check out these ST 2014 links:
There will be a joint TARA/SoAR pavilion manned by Jorge Blanco & others. Also, our esteemed new prefect, Chris Short, will be in attendance as a vendor (Chris’ Rocket Supplies) so stop by both tents and say hello.
