I’m being more laid back with my rocketry goals this year. I’m thinking I’ll continue devoting more time and effort to non rocketry activities than in the past couple years.
I don’t plan on doing any dual deployment this year… well, maybe if I find myself with the cash I’ll get a Chute Release and play with that, but that’s about it.
This year I’m not setting any club contest goals. Last year I thought I was going to learn a good deal by focusing on a few contests. That didn’t happen. Well, I learned a few things, but mostly my 2016 contest experience was unsatisfactory.
I’m continuing to do the newsletter on my schedule, but I’m feeling like that doesn’t really belong on my goals list.
I plan on going to DC this year… but in late July / early August, not for NARCON. I might get to URRF, might not, but I won’t put that in the goals.
So for this year:
- NARTREK Gold
- Complete all non PMC rockets in progress or in the build pile as of 1 Jan 2017 (see first 6 entries in table below)
- Adhere to a budget
- Attend NYPower, CNYRTC, and all SRC launches
- Fly lots of stuff
- Have fun
