Just a friendly reminder that we have our rocket lab build session at the usual place and time tomorrow, noon to 3pm! Bring whatever you want to work on, but if you are planning in attending our night launch in July I definitely recommend checking in on the requirements, and getting some work done there! Check events for more details!
Check out the information and directions here
We have recieved approval for our launch on 11 Nov 2017 at 0900. For instructions on how to get to the launch site, please check out our info page here: http://www.skarclub.org/launch-information/
Just got confirmation for the October launch. This month the launch will be Sunday, Oct 15th from 0900 to 1400. We have an approved ceiling of 10,000 AGL. You can find directions to the launch site here: http://www.skarclub.org/launch-information/
If you have any questions, please let us know! As per normal, you can make purchases from http://bayarearocketry.com/ For delivery options select launch site pickup and in the notes write that it is for SKAR launch pickup in mojave. Be sure to let me (Chris) or Kevin know as if we have stuff to pickup we can pick yours up also. Looking forward to seeing you all out there!
Also, our build session this month will be Sat OCt 28th. from noon to 3pm. We may have a local boyscout troop with us building rockets as well, but that has not yet been confirmed. Our business meeting will be that same day at 3pm. We will have some pizza and drinks so be sure to make it if you can!
Sorry for the late notice, it took awhile to get confirmation back from the Air Force due to the holiday being on Tuesday. We are go for launch on Saturday, 9am to 2pm (though we tend to start picking up around noon most days). As usual, we will be launching just north of Ariel Acres, you can get location information at http://www.skarclub.org/launch-information/
Also, we have our first community class being taught, Introduction to Rocketry, with a workshop. You can find out more information and registered here: http://www.skarclub.org/event/skar-101skar-101l-introduction-to-rocketry-w-workshop/
Lastly, due to our low memberships, we did not have enough nominations for officer positions to hold an election this year. As such, our current administration will continue to run until next year, where hopefully our membership will increase enough to have elections again. If you are interested in helping out, please attend the business meetings!
That is all for now!
Proposal 2017-001: Proposed Amendment of Bylaws for Southern Kern Aeronautics and Rocketry Club
Article 7: Board of Directors
Due to low membership, and non-sufficient number of volunteers to hold board positions, it is being proposed that the number of board members be reduced from seven to five. This proposal would eliminate two Senior Advisor positions.
SKAR has had two full year terms and a six-month interim term for officers. During these terms, the six-month interim term and the first full year term held two advisors that volunteered to help the club form, but were not fully interested in the club activities, and thus did not participate in either club events or administration of the club.
During the second full year term, the club was unable to fill one of the advisor positions, and relied on one member to hold a position as both the Vice President as well as the Secretary/Treasurer.
On investigation, it has been found that while a board of seven provides the best opportunity to represent members in the administration of the club, that the club is not yet large enough to require seven representatives.
“The Board of Directors of this club shall include the three (3) officers and the four (4) Senior Advisors.”
Proposed Revised Edition:
“The Board of Directors of this club shall include the three (3) officers and the two (2) Senior Advisors.”
This proposed change to the Southern Kern Aeronautics and Rocketry Bylaws will be voted on both in an online poll linked from the club website and FaceBook Group site, as well as at the business meeting set to occur on 24 Jun 2017. All members are hereby advised of this action. Online voting will be held between 0930 12 June 2017 to 2359 25 June 2017.
It’s time for our monthly launch! Come join us! Show off your rockets!
north of Hwy 58, outside of Aerial Acres, at 35° 6′ 17.2008″,-117° 47′ 42.1188″ 9 am to 2 pm!
