Default ECOF is this weekend 7/25 & 7-26

Well my Model Rocketry Friends, it is here already. Woosh's annual ECOF event ( Eat Cheese or Fly). All of the fun starts this Saturday July 25th and Sunday the 26th. Range set up starts at 8:00 Am and depending on how many helpers we get the range should be open by 9:00 AM.
Besides our normal array of LPR, MPR, and HPR pads that will be set up we have many special activities going on. In no particular order:

Woosh will be having a 50/50 raffle on Saturday- tickets will be $1.00 each or 6 for $5.00. Winner needs to be present and drawing will occur sometime between 3:00 and 3:30. 1/2 the money to the winner and the rest goes to Woosh. Tickets can be purchased at registration
There will be a raffle going on with random drawing occuring on Saturday and Sunday ( winner needs to be present) We have some nice prizes donated by Gary from Top Flight, Tim from Wildman Hobbies, and a number of Woosh members have donated some items to the raffle. Again all proceeds go to Woosh. Tickets will again be $1.00 each or 6 for $5.00 dollars.
There will also be a silent auction going on with some rare kits donated by Woosh club members. At a minimum there will be an Estes Saturn V #1236 -K36 believe this is a 2nd generation kit. Bids will start at $35.00. There will also be a 4inch diameter R&D kit which is a JayHawk. Again the bidding starts at $35.00. You can find the information as well as the kits at Registration. Winner need not be present for this and the drawing will occur on Sunday at 3:00 PM.
As a rocketry club we try to help fellow members and there friends. There will .be another raffle running by fellow Woosh member Brent Lillesand. He is raising some money for a family going thru a tough time. See Brent in the parking lot for more details on his raffle.

Well if just the launching of rockets isn't enough, and the raffles aren't enough for you- remember Wildman hobbies will be present with the trailer full of temptation. If you need a particular, motor, case, widget, whatever- Tim probably has it. and if that's still not enough we have 2 contests going that people can enter there rockets in.

The first is the Jarosch Cup- See details here:

The second is Kelly Engineering Challenge - See details here:

The weather forecast is looking good so come on out watch, launch, get in the raffles, and just hang out with some great people.
If you have any items you would like to donate to the raffle or silent Auction See Russ Westergaard or Carl Riley at the launch ( usually by the registration table).

5-4-3-2-1 Woosh

Hope to see you all there.
