I'm from the Newton North high school TARC team, and we're quite new to the scene. I see the 2022 season is unfortunately over at CMASS; just wondering if you guys do any launches during December / the winter months or if we should invest in our own GSE. If that's the best route for us, we're also wondering where the best place to launch would be around the Boston metro area.
You are right, CMASS is done for the calendar year. Looking at our 2022 schedule, we will have similar launches scheduled for 2023. I don't have the dates nailed down just yet but will update the schedule when it is set. The School Street field in Acton is where we will be flying when we do.
It's possible some of the local mentors listed on the TARC website may be able to accommodate additional launches.
A few of us got together this past Sunday at the School Street field in Acton to launch a few rockets. Some of us get together every now and then on an informal basis. I have a launcher that can handle mid size rockets but it can only accommodate launch rods up to 1/4. If possible for testing purposes, may I suggest you add 1/4 launch lugs to your TARC kits. I could be tempted to come down to Acton on a Saturday or a Sunday if the Patriots have the 4:30 PM game.
