VIPE is GO for July 19 and 20!|
With nearly perfect weather for the coming weekend it is with pleasure that we announce that VIPE 2014 is GO! The launch is taking place in Roberval near Lac St Jean.
A crazy-high ceiling, almost no winds (5-15km/h), hot weather and a 3km by 3km field... what more could a rocketry enthusiast ask for?! We expect to see you all this weekend up north for some rocket fun!
Next stop: VIPE 2014! Before, though, it's time to order motors again!|
It's already time to go get your motors for our next launch! Remember that this year, we have two options for ordering: Sunward Hobbies (Cesaroni) and Canadian Rocket Store (Aerotech, Estes). For info on how to order, in both cases, consult this link: http://www.clubqf.ca/en/ev-information.html#motorinfo
When buying from Canadian Rocket Store you must enter a promotional code at the checkout. This code is: CQF0714. If you're ordering from Sunward please leave a note with your order that you need the motors for the next QRC launch.

October Sky to take place on the 12 and the 13|
We've received our authorizations for October Sky 2013! According to our last review including all factors with a focus on weather, we've determined that we are absolutely "GO" for October Sky 2013 this weekend! It seems that we're falling right in the middle of an "indian summer", with maximums of 20 degrees on both days and winds averaging 8km/h and with barely any cloud cover!
