Latest launch update

After discussions between our club officers we have made the decision to cancel our May launch.
Along with the stay at home order from the Governor and other restrictions put in place by the Governor. We do not feel we can comfortably meet all the restrictions put in place. So we came to this difficult decision, we decided we did not want risk anyone’s health for a few hours of launching rockets.
All of the officers regret cancelling the launch. We all want to be out flying rockets and having fun as soon as possible but the health risk are just to great at this time.

Stay Safe,
Dennis McAuliff

Upcoming Launches update

Due to COVID19 we have canceled our scheduled April launch. This is based on NAR telling all sections to cancel or postpone all April launches until April 16th. Our club officers have made the decision to cancel any launches for April. As of right now we have a launch scheduled for May 9th, but consider this date as tentative. We will continue to follow all recommendations from NAR concerning all future launches.
