Sorry for the bad news. So far there is no rocket launches allowed at Bong because of the dry weather we are experiencing this summer. Please stay tuned if conditions change. Please call the Launch hotline for updates. 262-677-2249 or click on to this website.

Thanks Frank Nobile

I would guess almost all activity at Bong has been banned. At least when we do get to fly again most of the ponds should be dried up.
Thanks for the update Frank.

If it doesn't rain for the next 2 years and it rains the 3rd year we should be able to launch at Bong that year.

Like I said in the first post. SO FAR ALL ROCKET LAUNCHING AT BONG HAVE BEEN BANNED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE. IF CONDITIONS CHANGE TWA WILL POST IT.

I DO NOT KNOW WHAT THE MOISTURE CONTENT HAS TO BE TO ALLOW US TO LAUNCH. I SUPPOSE UNTIL THINGS GET SOMEWHAT GREEN

DRY CONDITIONS ARE SO BAD YOU CAN'T EVEN HAVE A CAMP FIRE FROM WI TO THE ROCKIES. I WONDER IF THE DOG PEOPLE CAN USE THERE FIRE ARMS?

This is absurd. Who are the morons who make these draconian decisions?? Idiot bureaucrats i suppose.

Thanks Frank. Keep us posted.

Frank, thank you for letting us know. I am not surprised at all by this...it makes sense as it is far too easy to start a fire in these conditions. Imagine trying to contain a fire in this...probably not possible.

There is always the winter launch...assuming it gets cold again.
