Mon, Aug 10, 2020 — At this time weather for the sport launch in Hutchinson this coming Saturday looks pretty good. Could be a bit of wind in the afternoon and it will be pretty hot. Bbut otherwise, a good day to fly rockets. Stay tuned for updates as we get closer to Saturday.
The August sport launch is happening Saturday, August 15th at our Hutchinson, KS field, the large parking lot on the east side of the Fair Grounds. Remember to use the Plum Street entrance. We plan to be ready to start launching rockets at 9:00am. At this time the weather is looking okay, but it will be hot, so bring water and sunscreen.
The weather forecast for this weekend has some wind, particularly on Sunday. It has therefore been decided that we will plan to hold KRAMO on Saturday only. We will extend the scheduled time slightly from 10:00am to 5:00pm.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, KOSMO has not held any club launches so far in 2020. Due to a relaxation of recommendations by the State of Kansas and the National Association of Rocketry, we are planning to hold KRAMO 40 with some modifications. In an effort to make it easier for participants to practice appropriate social distancing, we have eliminated the night flight that was scheduled and have changed the schedule. We are still planning to fly competition and sport launches on both Saturday and Sunday, but leave it up to each participant to decide which day(s) they would like to be present. Any competition prizes will be sent to any flyer not present at the end of the event. Please read the KRAMO Page for all of the details.
As we enter a new decade, the Kansas Organization for Spacemodeling is celebrating a milestone. KOSMO has now existed as a club and a section of the National Association of Rocketry for 40 years. We have a number of events planned for 2020 and we hope you will come join us. Let's make the 40th year, one of the best.
