Club Launch and National Rocket Competition 1 for GRC 790
September 30 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
Come out and launch some rockets:-)
Make sure to bring plenty of water and wear sun screen
Three of the six NRC events for this time will be:
A- Streamer Duration
1/2 A-Parachute Duration
What's significant about these three of the six events and the format of the NRC is that all these events WILL be flown at NARAM 60 (along with 3-5 events yet to be determined by the CD) and that the NRC will allow members to fly these events as much as they want starting August 5th and ending June 30, 2018, in the lead up to NARAM 60.
The other three events on the NRC that you can compete in this day for points if you would like is:
C-Egg Lofting (Altimeter)
A-Payload Altitude (Altimeter)
1/2 A Boost Glide Duration
You can bring your own egg (raw not boiled) for the egg lofting event.
The details behind the significance of the new NRC contest format can be found by downloading the new U.S. Model Rocket Sporting Code (aka Sporting Code) from the NAR website. Reading Section 13!
A competitor’s official score is the sum of the durations achieved on all official flights.
