Rocketry goals for 2017

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…

Rocketry goals review for November/December 2016

So that was a year, huh. Yes, I definitely dialed down my rocket activity in 2016, particularly the last half. Partly for financial reasons. Partly because a lot of what I worked on led to less than good results, and that doesn’t bolster enthusiasm. For November/December: Dual deployment: (Again:) Nothing. Enter at least three club…

Rocketry goals review for October 2016

An even less rocket-intensive month. There was a meeting. I did significant work on one rocket. There was a club launch which I missed. Dual deployment: (Again:) Nothing. Will not be doing this in 2016. Enter at least three club contests, putting some effort into improving my knowledge and skills in those three rocketry areas: Nothing. NARTREK Gold:…

Rocketry goals review for September 2016

Not a rocket-intensive month. Dual deployment: (Again:) Nothing. Will not be doing this in 2016. Enter at least three club contests, putting some effort into improving my knowledge and skills in those three rocketry areas: Decided to punt completely on the PMC rockets. Didn’t fly in the B streamer spot landing, either. Didn’t fly at all… NARTREK Gold:…

Rocketry goals review for August 2016

Not so much building and painting this month; little action since the launch. Dual deployment: (Again:) Nothing. Will not be doing this in 2016. Enter at least three club contests, putting some effort into improving my knowledge and skills in those three rocketry areas: Flew the B3S2a again for the B Streamer Spot Landing. Won, I think. DQd…

Rocketry goals review for July 2016

Quite a lot of building and painting, and some flying too. Dual deployment: (Again:) Nothing so far. It’s looking unlikely for this year, too much else going on. Enter at least three club contests, putting some effort into improving my knowledge and skills in those three rocketry areas: Flew the B3S2a again for the B Streamer Spot Landing.…

Rocketry goals review for June 2016

Back to building and painting! Dual deployment: (Again:) Nothing so far. It’s looking unlikely for this year, too much else going on. Enter at least three club contests, putting some effort into improving my knowledge and skills in those three rocketry areas: Redesigned/repaired the B3S2 (now B3S2a), used it to win the B Streamer Spot Landing, painted…

Rocketry goals review for May 2016

Flying has begun, though building is still largely on hold. Dual deployment: (Again:) Nothing so far. It’s looking unlikely for this year, too much else going on. Enter at least three club contests, putting some effort into improving my knowledge and skills in those three rocketry areas: Launched, crippled, and started to redesign/repair the B3S2. Won the…

Rocketry goals review for Mar/Apr 2016

I’ve been on something of a rocketry break, doing other things these past several weeks. First club launch is coming up soon and NYPower after that, so it’s time to get back into action. Right? Dual deployment: Nothing so far. It’s looking unlikely for this year, too much else going on. Enter at least three club…

Rocketry goals review for Jan/Feb 2016

  Dual deployment: Nothing so far. Enter at least three club contests, putting some effort into improving my knowledge and skills in those three rocketry areas: I’ve assembled a rocket (B2S3) for B streamer spot landing; I’ve built a flex wing glider (but not yet the booster) and bought the parts for a Nymph slide pod rocket glider;…
