Next launch this Saturday, September 23 at MIS

We will be back at MIS this Saturday for our first launch of the fall season. Please bring something special for our 911 tribute.
The JMRC cafe will be open! 

It will be a hot one with temps in the upper 80's. Bring water!
 

 The field (Graves Campground) is located south of Brooklyn off of M12 between Brooklyn Rd. and M-50 just across from the MIS main entrance.  Enter through the main MIS entrance on M12. Follow the signs for "Check In". Be sure to stop at the guard shack and sign the MIS waiver form. Once you're through the gate you'll proceed forward 100 to 200 feet. Turn to the right. The road will take you to the Tram # 9 station. From there you will see the tunnel that goes "under" US-12, follow that to the Graves Launch Site.

At the end of the day, you may leave the way that you entered.

Drive back to the MIS Security building. You'll see a Yellow grid painted on the asphalt. Drive up to that point & the gate will open so that you can leave for the day.

Flights up to 3000' are approved!
