Oct 8/9 Samson Launches postponed

Wednesday, October 5th, 2011

Sorry due to plowing of the field the Oct 8/9 launches are rescheduled to Oct 15/16. Always check this site before departing for a launch.

SEARS Launches cancelled until Fall 2011

Wednesday, June 15th, 2011

Sorry! This is due to changes at the field. Next launch date is TBA.

SEARS Launch Schedule Change

Saturday, April 16th, 2011

The farm has changed owners and will be planted entirely in peanuts.  We don’t think launching is a good idea until the crop is harvested. We will only have a May launch if the field has not been planted by that time. We really expect it to be planted. We will see what unfolds. So standby for an update on May and we will not plan any more launches otherwise until October.

SEARS Feb 5th Launch Postponed to Feb 12th

Thursday, February 3rd, 2011

Rain expected on the field Thursday and Friday will increase the possibility of damage to the field therefore we are postponing the launch to Feb 12th. Note, always check our web site before you leave for a launch.

Feb 13th Launch moved to Feb 20th

Friday, February 12th, 2010

We will move the Feb 13th Samson launch one week to Saturday Feb 20th. The sun will be out but the field has recieved a large amount of moisture today. We do not want to risk damage to the field. The South Alabama guys said the extra week would help them get their final rocket ready. Unfortunately this is a hardship on Chris Short and his work schedule . Please contact him about motors.

As always check your email or the web site before heading out to the launch. Please let anyone who may not get this email know about the change.

Thanks,
