Happy New Year from KOSMO. We just finished our annual business meeting where we outlined our launch schedule for the coming year. Be sure to look at the Launch Dates page for the full listing of upcoming events. The launch comming up first is Spring Fling, on March 19 (with an alternate date of April 2). This will be at the Ellinwood, KS Airport and is one of 3 high power launches scheduled for this year. This will be followed by sport launches in Hutchinson in both April and May. June has a 4-H launch at the Rush County airport and then the 36th annual KRAMO competition the following weekend. In July is the NAR Annual Meet near Walnut Grove, MO. Some KOSMO members plan to be helping with that. In Auguest we have another sport launch planned for Hutchinson, along with a cookout. Labor Day weekend hosts the Final Fronteir Fun Fly, back at the Ellinwood airport, and in October we will have Rocket-Ober Fest, also at Ellinwood. Rounding out the launch year will be the annual Night Flight, back in Hutchinson, in early November.
We hope to see lots of new and familiar faces this year out on the launch range.
