Launch for November 9, 2019 is cancelled

Well, it looks like winter has hit us in a hurry. So due to the cold and the forecast of high winds the launch scheduled for this Saturday, November 9, 2019 is cancelled. 


We will most likely not fly again until March but we might try to get in a launch if we get some spring like weather over the winter.

Thanks to everyone that has come out to our launches and we'll see you all next season!

Launch is on!

We know,
it will be a bit windy
and not so warm
but we will be there anyway!


So put on a coat and use a smaller parachute.
Oh, and pack a lunch, the cafe will not be open.
Always good to hang out with our JMRC friends no matter what the weather!

Our next launch will be October 12, 2019.

We will be back at MIS at the Graves campground site.

Check the "Launch Fields" tab above for directions to the fields.

Windy but Great September launch!

114 rockets launched into the sky on Saturday but because of the winds a few of them never made it back to the ground and are stuck in the trees at MIS.

Maybe they will find there way home some day.

Thanks to all that came out. We had a great time!

A Great August Launch!

After some strange winds and cloudy skies in the morning it turned out to be another great day of flying. 117 rockets took to the sky and a good time was had by all.

Thanks to all that helped with setup and tear down. All the help made things easy.

Another Great Maker Faire!

A special and big "THANK YOU" to those that helped out at the 2019 Maker Faire. Although the crowd at the Faire was not as large as in past years we still managed to fly about 250 rockets over the two day weekend.

Lots of smiling faces!
