From 1:30pm Saturday 15th March, those who wish to have an “afternoon with a difference” or who want to take the kids to something ‘different’ couldn’t do better than to come to the Model Rocket Launch at the TARMAC (Toowoomba Amateur Radio-Controlled Model Aircraft Club) field on the New England Highway, 10kms south of Toowoomba on the New England Highway …. just past “the Mill – The Outlook”. (look out for the windsock in the field on the right).
What is also so good is that it is all free! …. just drive in and park….relax in the folding chair you’ve brought with you….avail yourself of the canteen if you wish..but watch and be part of the action. (There are toilet facilities on site too).
As a bonus, senior boys from the Space Pilots’ club will catapult-launch several balsa “gliders” in competition with each other… that should be very interesting!
Thanks to TARMAC for hosting these events every year ….this is the first one for 2014. So do come and enjoy yourself.
