The weather looks to be setting up for a great launch opportunity, so we are GO for our Saturday June 8th launch. The launch will kick off at 9 am and run as late as 4 pm or until all present are done flying. We suggest arriving by midday for the best flight opportunities.
IMPORTANT: It is a busy time at the farm, As such it is required that we limit our parking to the field only! There will be absolutely NO PARKING permitted on the road and no parking across the road by the abandoned building. Upon arriving, please pull promptly onto the field so as to not impede any other farm business or visitors.
Just a reminder and request too. It probably goes without saying, but please help us leave the land looking even better than before we arrived by picking up any trash you see, even if it is not yours. This includes anything you might find along the flight line, spent motors, wadding, igniter wires, or any random trash you might encounter out in the fields. Round it up and we’ll help dispose of it.
One last note. The farm is a business. While you are out for a fun day of flying, please consider patronizing the farm by doing a little shopping at the greenhouses. Farming is a tough business these days, so all we can do to help our gracious hosts is appreciated. Thank you!
We hope everyone had a good May. Welcome to June! And with June comes our next launch, scheduled for Saturday June 8, 2019 starting at 9 am and running as late as 4 pm. The range will be open to low, mid, and high power fliers with our high power waiver in effect.
We’ll post a final GO/NO-GO for the launch by Friday evening based on the latest launch weather outlook and any other launch status updates in the interim as warranted.
May is a peak business time at the farm. As such, we will not be holding a launch at the farm in May.
The greenhouses are overflowing with flowers and other plantings which would look great in your garden. Please consider dropping by in May to do a little shopping. Its a great way to give back a little for all the farm provides us. We’ll be back to flying in June!
We are conditionally GO for tomorrow’s 4/13 launch! We have pushed back tomorrow’s start time to 11 AM to avoid as much of any lingering dampness from overnight showers as possible.
As the farm has now opened for business for the season, it is important that we avoid parking on the road for our launches. Our hope is that by 11 AM tomorrow things will have dried out sufficiently for us to park on the field. If for some reason that doesn’t happen there is a risk of having to announce a late scrub. We appreciate your understanding.
Also, with the farm now open for the season, please consider patronizing our wonderful hosts at the farm. Spring and Easter flowers are available at the greenhouses further down the access road. Thanks!
Our next launch is scheduled for Saturday April 13, 2019, starting at 9 am. We’ll have to keep an eye on weather and field conditions, so be sure to check back for a final GO/NO-GO announcement on Friday evening. Fingers crossed for some fun Spring flying! ??
We are GO for our Saturday March 9th launch. We will kick of at the usual 9 am. How late we run will be determined by ground conditions and turn out. Come early if you want to be guaranteed a chance to fly.
Important: The field is snow covered with at least a few inches of snow. Wear boots! There will be absolutely no parking on the field. We got the OK to fly but need to be safe. Please park along the access road in a manner which will not block the flow of traffic into or out of the farm. Pull as far to the side as you can, but be careful not to get stuck in any of the snow. If your vehicle can not fit in a fashion which won’t block traffic, you will need to quickly unload and then park down by the greenhouses and walk back. Your cooperation is crucial and appreciated.
