Member Thank You

SARA would like to send a special "thank you" to member Allen Coleman. Allen doesn't live in Arizona, but is a proud SARA member all the same. He even made a special effort to attend our October night launch, traveling from out-of-state to do so, and gave us a donation to help with the upkeep of our equipment. To Allen, and all of our members who keep this club thriving, we salute you!

July 2012 Launch Report

The question at a July rocket launch in Tucson isn't "Will it be hot?", but "How hot will it be?" This year wasn't too bad. The morning broke to mid-level clouds, relieving rocketeers from the direct rays of the sun, at least for a little while. Even after the sun came out, the temperatures weren't as bad as one would expect. The result was a great day of flying.

The motor breakdown was as follows:
July2012Launch 200x245 3001/2A: 5
A: 15
B: 19
C: 18
D: 9
E: 11
F: 5
G: 9
H: 3
I: 2
J: 1
K: 1
L: 1
Those are quite respectable numbers for a summer launch!

Also, we will not have a food vendor at the June club launch, so be sure to bring lots of water in addition to your hat and sunscreen!
