Tue, Mar 21, 2017 — This will be the third attempt for the Spring Fest launch. Way too early to tell what the weather will be like that day. Despite the weather on the 1st, however, if there hasn't been soom rain between now and then, the launch could get canceled because conditions are too dry. Stay tuned for further announcements.
The first KOSMO rocket launch of the season is coming up. That launch is called Spring Fest. It is one of our high power launches held near Ellinwood, KS. March, however, is a particularly hard time of the year to out guess the weather. So this year we have scheduled three possible dates for Spring Fest. The first option is coming up on Saturday, March 4. This will be at the Ellinwood Airport and will feature a 10,000 ft FFA waiver. If the weather causes us trouble, then we have an alternate date scheduled of Saturday, March 18. And if that day is also bad, we have a 2nd alternate date scheduled of Saturday, April 1. Stay tuned for more announcements.
