Mini Midwest Power

May 23rd and 24th, 2020

Come join us at our favorite club launch of the year, MiniMidwest Power! The fields are just planted and we may even have nice weather...

MiniMidwest Power is our annual two-day club launch that includes...

  • Regularly near the end of May (Memorial Day Weekend)
  • Saturday and Sunday launch operations
  • On-Site vendor (Wildman Hobbies)
    • It is strongly recommended that you pre-order any supplies you may need.

Special rules for this launch

  • Masks must be worn at all times when outside your vehicle. No exceptions.
    • Topflight Recovery has generously offered to provide masks for those without. Please bring your own mask if you are able.
  • Safety inspection will take place one by one, no lines.
    • RSO will have a new location, away from the flight line.
    • To sign up for safety inspection, submit your flight card to the RSO table. Do not bring your rocket at that time.
    • When the RSO is ready to inspect your rocket, it will be announced over the loudspeaker and on 93.9 FM.
    • If your rocket is too large to be safely carried by one person, a RSO will come to you when it is your turn. Please indicate this on your flight card.
  • Park on the east side of the road.
  • If you have your own gloves, it is recommended that you wear them when loading your rocket on the pad.
    • Pads will be spaced further apart than normal.
    • There will be a bottle of hand sanitizer at the LCO table.
  • Maintain social distance of 6 feet apart minimum from anyone that did not arrive in your vehicle.
  • Port-a-potties will be available on site. Use them at your own risk as they will not be sanitized between uses.
  • No loitering around the LCO table, the RSO table, Registration, or the Wildman Trailer.
  • In an unfortunate break with tradition, there can be no party at Wildman's after the launch this year. Sorry to disappoint.

I understand many of you may feel frustrated with these rules, however, these rules are the only thing allowing us to hold a launch at this time. Thank you for your patience, be safe, be healthy, and have a fun time at Mini Midwest Power!
