launch on Saturday #Launch

Jonathan Sivier
 

We have another rocket launch scheduled for this Saturday, July 25 at Dodds Park in Champaign. As always it will depend on the weather. Greg will be making an announcement later in the week with the outlook for the launch, but I thought I should give a heads-up about the launch since we haven't be holding them regularly.

As was the case last time we will be following our COVID-19 launch protocols. They seemed to work well last time and allowed to hold a launch while keeping everyone safe. I will append the rules below.

Jonathan

Rules for CIA launches at Dodds Park V1.1

These rules are based on guidelines from the Park District as well as our own
common sense. They may be adjusted as time goes by and we see things that
need to be changed or added.

- If you don't feel well, stay home.

- Don't park in adjacent spaces.

- Set up your prep area at a reasonable distance from others.

- If you want to participate in the launch, a mask must be worn to cover both
your nose and mouth whenever you cannot maintain a safe distance from other
participants. No exceptions to masks. Effectively, this means that masks
must be worn when you are not at your own setup area or your car, or
recovering a rocket in the field far from other people.

- Everyone should bring their own hand sanitizer and use it regularly.
Especially after you have been in contact with the pads or wadding bucket
that others will also be using.

- Bring a scoop or cup or something to get wadding out of the bucket, rather
than using your hands.

- Take your trash out of the park with you when you leave. Bring a trash
bag you can use for your trash.

- We will have the pads spaced out in pods, with possibly 2 pads per pod.
Only one person at a pod at a time. The exception to this is that members
of a family can go to the pad together.

- One LCO or specific sanitizing between multiple LCOs.

- No remote launch button (sorry kids).

- Do not hover or loiter at the LCO table, unless you are the LCO.

- Be willing to inform visitors and guests about these safeguards.
We all need to help keep everyone safe. We'll need everyone to do their
part, including letting new people know what they should do.

- We will be collecting contact information of all participants and
spectators. Check in with the LCO when you arrive. This is so that if
someone present happens to be infected their past contacts can be traced.

- For set up and tear down, only one person in the trailer at a time. That
person can unload/reload equipment and the rest of us can carry that
equipment to and from the field. When doing so we need to wear masks and
try to maintain spacing as best we can.

- We are limited to 50 people in a group. Generally this shouldn't be a
problem. However, we may ask spectators to sit away from the rest of the
group and thus not be considered part of our group.

a good day of flying #LaunchReport

Jonathan Sivier
 

Our first launch in around 5 months went pretty well yesterday. We had a dozen or so people flying rockets and several spectators. Most of the spectators were family members, but we did get a couple of people who happened to see us flying our rockets and stopped by to watch. Despite the changes to our procedures we were able to get things set up and start flying by 1:00 as usual. We had to end a bit earlier than we would have due to a storm approaching. We got everything packed up just before it started to rain.

I think the COVID-19 protocols worked out well. Thanks to everyone for helping us hold a safe and fun launch. Hopefully our launch on July 25 will be even better.

Jonathan


#Launch is GO #Launch

Greg Smith
 

At 11:00 AM, it was 83°F in Champaign, with mostly clear skies, and a west wind at 9 mph.

Conditions are good for flying, so we will meet as scheduled at 12:00 noon at the Dodds Park soccer field parking lots to set up.

HOWEVER, The Weather Channel is predicting that a significant band of thunderstorms will move through the area between 3:00 PM and 4:00 PM. We'll need to watch the skies and radar and be prepared to pack up quickly if necessary.

Remember to observe our cleaning, masking and physical distancing rules today as previously described. Thanks in advance for your cooperation.

Outlook for Saturday #Launch

Greg Smith
 

For the first time since February, we have a rocket launch scheduled tomorrow, Saturday, July 11, at Dodds Park in Champaign.

Setup will begin at 12:00 noon, probably in the south half of the soccer field parking lots. Flying can continue until sunset at 8:30 PM. Our waiver allows flying motors through "H" class up to 4,000' MSL (about 3,250' from ground level).

The forecast is good (except for one little thing!):

-----

Saturday - A 30 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms, mainly after 3pm. Mostly sunny, with a high near 87. Light west wind increasing to 5 to 9 mph in the morning.

-----

We'll have to be on the lookout for those thunderstorms, but it sounds like a good day for flying, at least for as long as it stays dry. I will post the final decision about the launch here shortly after 11:00 AM tomorrow. You can call me after that time at 217-840-1678 for an update.

Our next launch will be Saturday, July 25 at Dodds Park.

Please note that we will be enforcing our new physical distancing and masking requirements starting with this launch. We're brand new at doing things this way, so please be patient with us. Here are the new rules again:

I'm getting tested every month right now just to check.  My last test was negative.  Under the CDC guidelines there are two exemptions including medical and children 3 and under.

I figure it will be next year or later till the mask issue will be over.  Unless a vaccine can be made.  But that's unlikely since none of the COVID virus strains have a vaccine.

Since I can't be there I'll try and sell some stuff on Rocketry Forum.

Too much prep work that I will have to do that morning, sorry. We’ll stick with a noon setup this time.

Are we following our usual time for set up at noon Saturday or can we consider starting earlier?

I dont think the temps will be much more than a couple of degrees cooler. And I think as of now there is rain potential about 6pm.

Personally, meeting at and starting set up at 10 am sounds good to me.

Re: Dodds acreage?

Greg Smith
 

Ditto what Chris said, but in general, what you described is well within the range of things we routinely fly at Dodds.

 

Right now, they’re predicting a NNW wind at about 10 mph at launch time. That could change between now and Saturday, but if it holds, thst shouldn’t rule out the flights you’re proposing.

A lot depends on the wind speed and direction. We have launched rockets to 2000 ft or more that recovered in the park, and we’ve had rockets go much lower that left the park. A parachute release will greartly increase your chances of staying in the park, and we usually try to set up where we will have the most recovery area.
