It has been a long time since we posted in this section. Please rest assure that our club is active. The best way to see what we are up to is to have a look at our
Yahoo discussion group or our Facebook group: Ottawa Rocketry Group
We keep our launch
Calendar up to date. Normally we post our calendar for the year in January.
Since it’s Mother’s Day, we are canceling the launch for May 10th. Get your rockets ready for the next launch on May 24th.
Another great launch although it was slightly breezy. Big thanks to Perry and Sons for finding my engine casing! JF recorded the following videos:

Weather looks good. It might get a bit breezy in the afternoon but the morning launch weather should be fine. Meet at parking lot P1 outside the range at 9:50 AM. We enter the range as a group at 10 AM.
A great day for a launch! We had warm weather and light winds for the morning, at least. The grass is low and recovery was easy this time of year. Photos:
A beautiful spring day with light winds in the morning. It's a great time to launch because the grass is low and recovery is much easier.
Dario recoded this on board his LOC Iris:

Daniel provided the following video of Dario’s launch:
Looks like a nice day. Bring boots since I suspect it will be muddy and we might even need sunscreen this afternoon!

See you at parking lot P1 at 9:50 AM.
Today was a nice spring day. Although it started out cold we had bright sun and light winds. We had a good turn out with the usual hardy Winter launchers present.
A few interesting events, as with every launch, Greg P almost lost his postage stamp rocket in a tree, John C has a nice CATO which we caught on camera, and Bill G has a nice new zipper on his LOC IV.

Due to bad weather we’re cancelling the launch today. Note the group meets at the Tim Horton’s at March Road and Carling Avenue at 10 am.
