TARC Launch Schedule for 2022 was created by KennB
CMASS will host a series of launches for TARC teams to perform practice launches and/or qualifying attempts at the School St Field in Acton. The dates are 19 February, 05 &19 March and 02 April. These are not open club launches but any club members (especially NAR members) are encouraged to come by to help with performing our tasks of witnessing, timing and completing the paperwork.

Any TARC teams that want to avail themselves of this opportunity should post a reply on this forum or contact a CMASS officer through our website. Teams should bring all of the supplies they will need to do as many launches as we can fit in during each session. These supplies will include rockets, motors, starters, eggs, paperwork and anything else needed to prep for each flight. CMASS will provide the ground support equipment including 6-foot long 1010 launch rails and an excellent launch system with relays to ensure good ignition.

We want to be set up and ready to go by 11 AM and will fly until about 3PM depending on how many teams come to fly with us each day. Keep an eye on the website as weather conditions may change the dates we've planned.

We've heard from one team who will be there for the 05 March launch. 
Volunteers are welcome; if you help out, bring a rocket to fill the time between TARC flights.

I'll be at the March 5 launch with a couple piston ejection birds.  Hopefully there will be enough cover on the ground to be able to use my x-country skies.

The weather is looking bad for Saturday, 19 March. Sunday the 20th is looking much better.
Keep an eye on the website for the official call on Thursday.
Mentors, please keep your teams updated.

This weekend's TARC launch will take place on Sunday, 20 March.
The wind will be a bit strong but still good for practice (you never know what the conditions will be at the finals).
