The 2005 National Sport launch is on final approach and preparations are in place for a fantastic time! Fun Fly contests for prizes and bragging rights,3 FREEBLAST sessions sponsored and run by Quest for kids 8-18! Rocketry vendors on site, Night launches Friday and Saturday (must have a secured strobe or flashing light!) Dominoes and Subway taking orders for subs & pizza.
The schedule is up on the NSL website, available in PDF format. Download the NSL_Packet3.pdf from the homepage at:This is the final week to register early and save $5! Get those forms in the mail by Friday the 29th. The launch fees are setup in "family" mode, $20 for all immediate members for the whole weekend, $15 for a single day, and $3 per child (day rate) if the kids are the only ones flying rockets in your group!
The field is setup as a Misfire Alley with left and right sides to speed loading and launching. DART launches tradionally have had rocketeers launch their own rockets at the countdown called by the LCO. The majority of the controllers are very similar in operation. All have pad select toggles, safety interlock key, "armed condition" tone generators in the remote continuity box or controller. If you're not used to operating a controller, let the LCO know and we'll get an assistant out to the launch table to help you out!
Looks like great fun on the way, Don't miss it!
all the best,
Mike Jerauld LD, NSL 2005
