A bit windy but a great launch

Maker Faire a Great Success!

WOW!
We had a great time at the Detroit Maker Faire at The Henry Ford!
With near perfect weather with sunny skies and light winds, more than 300 rockets soared into the sky. Our most ever!
A very special thanks to all those that volunteered. It is a lot of hard work but well worth it for both our club and all those young (and some not so young) rocketeers.
Also, a big "thank you" to HUVARS and the staff of The Henry Ford.
Thanks again!

Volunteers Needed for Maker Faire!

The JMRC will once again be at The Henry Ford for this year's Maker Faire to be held on July 28-29.

And we need volunteers!

This event is a major fundraiser for us and has always drawn a big crowd. On a good weekend we can build and fly some 250 rockets!

We set up right out in the front yard of the Henry Ford.

We will need folks to help run the range, chase down rockets and help with the builds. If we have enough folks we will try to setup an information table inside.
