Default March launch at Bong 3-21

Come join Woosh this Saturday March 21 from 10:00am to 3:00pm at Richard Bong State Park -AKA- Bong. We'll have rails and rods of assorted sizes . Your welcome to fly LPR,MPR, and HPR. Now is your chance to get acquainted with Wisconsin's consistent changing March weather( you could say it's March Madness) - so bring everything from sunscreen and shorts, to your thickest hat and coat.
I'm going to fly my first cable cutter, a new Wild Thang Jr. And if all goes well a K735 skid. I'm hoping for 2 other flights as well, if that's not March madness I don't know what is .
Come on out and see Tim Lehr of Wildman hobbies. Become a Wildman club member and then you'll see a real bracket buster.
If anyone is going to need a 15/15 rail, a ladder, or is intending on launching anything needing the away cell. Please respond to this so we can plan accordingly as those are not part of our normal winter set-up. So we need to make arrangements to get those items to the field.
Don't be the one who misses this March tournament of launches. See you there.

Look for more information including weather related updates at www.Wooshrocketry.org

I flew my Formula 75 on an I-161. It was my first time using a cable cutter. I was very happy with results.

I wish i would have gotten more photos as there were a lot of TARC flights and other good flights as well. My final shot was my Art Applewhite Priority stealth on a G80.

Was a great time. First time I've been back to a launch in a year, I bet. I live near Madison, so it's a bit of a drive to get out to Bong for HPR. Sure would like to get more involved in the club, though. The only bird I flew was my LOC Hyperloc835 dubbed "Second Chance" (due to a CATO rebuild) on an I200W. Next time I vow to either help set up or breakdown... had to leave right before 3pm because of a call from work I had to deal with. Thanks for all the help with the launch, everyone! Here's a link to my flight that my 8-year-old son shot if interested...

Hope to see you at the next Johnson Creek launch!
