Go for October Sky this weekend!|
We are GO for October Sky 2017. We should have a great weekend weather-wise, but there is risk of cloud cover on Sunday.
We should be able to begin operations around 9 AM on Sunday until around 5 PM. For Sunday the window will be shorter, going from 9 AM to 3 PM.
We hope to see you all there!
GO for VIPE 2017 July 8 and 9!|
We are GO for VIPE 2017 this weekend! The weather forecast isn't the greatest, but we should have a decent enough Saturday to launch. On Sunday we'll need to keep our fingers crossed: there could be rain.
Most forecasts show little to no wind all weekend.
See you all on the field! The entrance is at the same place as last year, on "rang 3" in St-Prime.
Go for Rocket Fest 2017 this weekend|
The weather starts off nice for the 2017 season as we are looking at a great Saturday to launch with mid-range winds, clear skies and temperatures warm enough to enjoy the day, followed by an even more favorable Sunday, showing conditions of low wind and some slight cloud cover. This means that we are officially "GO" for this weekend's launch.
It won't be our usual scalding hot May weekend, so bring a warm shirt just in case. For the most part it should be an excellent weekend to launch rockets: See you there!

October Sky 2016 GO for October 9 and 10!|
We are GO for October Sky 2016 on Sunday and Monday only, with Saturday being too cloudy, windy and rainy to launch! The launch should be set up at our usual primary spot (rang Letendre) in St Pie de Guire, the same place a last May.
We're going to try lauching as early as possible starting around 10am. Setup should start at 8am and if you can make it, we'll appreciate all the help we can get!
Don't forget to bring your radios if you have any, as the tall corn may make searches more complicated. As previously mentioned, a lot of the crops should still be standing.
For those showing up after the safety briefing, please consult the RSO for any precautions or warnings specific to the given day.
