The Kansas Organization for Spacemodeling (KOSMO) is a group of families and individuals in Kansas that have a common interest in model rocketry. KOSMO is a chartered Section of the National Association of Rocketry (NAR).
The Final Frontier Fun Fly launch scheduled for this Saturday has been postponed two weeks to September 19th. The reason for this is because we are expecting high winds this Saturday. Hopefully the weather will be better in two weeks.
The Kansas City Association of Rocketry (KCAR) has announced that they will be hosting a NAR sanctioned regional contest on August 22 and 23. This will take place at the Shawnee Mission Park in Shawnee, KS. The events for this contest will be the same as what we had planned for KRAMO this year, which was canceled due to weather. For more information on this event contact contest director Blake Goddard with KCAR.
The next KOSMO launch is happening on Labor Day weekend, Saturday, September 5th. This is our annual September High Power launch at the Ellinwood, KS field. We will have a 10,000ft FAA Waiver in place so high power rockets (up to K impulse) will be allowed. There will be many low and mid power flights as well. Something for everyone. A BBQ lunch will be available at noon for a small fee. This is a great time to do a Level 1 or Level 2 high power certification attempt.
