June 8 2019 Longest Day Launch Report

On Saturday June 8, 2019 the Cambridge Rocket Club hosted it’s fifth launch of the season. The launch was held at the LS5 Launch site, Mohawk Road as our primary site LS-2 – Paisley Road is still too wet for us to access. The temperatures were mild, however the winds gusted up to 25 KPH which deterred many members from coming. Five of us were in Michigan competing in a Can-Am event.

A total of four members launched a total of 15 model rockets, burning 16 model rocket engines with a total impulse of 273 Newtons. For the first time that I can recall, we recovered 2 more rockets than we launched. Two models were recovered from trees that were lost at previous launches.

Our next launch is scheduled for Saturday June 22nd. This will be an all day affair starting at 10:00 in the morning, followed by a BBQ and then a night launch. We will also be hosting a swap meet and encourage all members to bring out any models, engines or arts they wish to trade or sell.
