For the club launch we had on October 27th, we had a sunny day with winds around 10 mph for most of the day and the temperature was in the 50’s.
We had a nice turn out for the day. We had 46 launches for a total of 2036 Newtons. We had 11 different people launching rockets for the day. The most prolific rocketeers for the day were Bill Wojtyla and John Yuill with 7 launches each and Paul Parkes with 541 Newtons.
We also finally got our Glider contest in and the winner was Chris Cantine. He ended up winning a $20 gift card to Hobby Lobby. We had a lot of great flights for the day. To see what was launched, please go and check out the launch logs. We also had some pictures taken, so go and check them out in the photo gallery.
Our next club launch is scheduled for November 10th from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm. This will probably be one of our last launches of the year, so hopefully everyone will make it out. Our first club meeting is also coming up on November 17th. We should have a lot of fun things going on at our meetings this year, so come and join us at the Naperville Library located just east of Route 59 on 95th street.
