There is a scheduled/approved Northern Colorado Rocketry launch event on Sat, 3/7 at the Atlas launch site. Weather pending….We have a GO for launch this Saturday, March 7th, from the Atlas Site. This launch will be for commercial motors only. Expect the range and waiver (12,000’ AGL) to be operational by 9 AM. Expecting partly cloudy skies, winds 6 to 10 mph, and maybe the temperatures will reach into the sixties. The waiver and range should remain open until 3 PM or until we run out of motors, lose interest or the wind chases us away, whichever happens first. Plan on flying early and often. Please note that the launching of rockets on NFS land is normally prohibited under a Forest Service Region 2 fire regulation. The issuance of NCR’s permit allows launches to take place for approved launch events only. All launches, other than those conducted during approved launch events, are prohibited by Forest Service regulations.
As always, volunteers are needed to help with range set up, operation and clean up.
