This is a regular model rocket launch to be conducted in accordance with the NAR Model Rocket Safety Code ( ) and MTMA launch procedures. G-impulse max. No high power. Non-MTMA members are limited to 10 N-s impulse maximum (C motor), no staging, and no clusters. The public is invited to attend (See special Covid-19 considerations).
As with all of our events this event is subject to availability of officers in attendance, launch equipment onsite, and safe weather conditions. In the event of poor flying conditions, the next day (Sunday) will be the backup flying date or it may be scrubbed completely. Check here for last minute updates before heading out to the launch.
We typically set up 15-30 minutes before the launch. Please arrive early and help with setup if you can. We fly until 7:00 pm (dusk), or until everyone has had enough and goes home. If you arrive late, you may find that we have already flown and packed up. Help with packing up the launch equipment is also greatly appreciated.
Please only park in the main parking lot. Do not drive out into the field.
Please stay off of the model airplane runway that is close to the parking lot.
SPECIAL COVID-19 CONSIDERATIONS – Due to the continual changing nature of these regulations and recommendations, please follow the latest guidelines
* Limit assembly to groups of 10 or less in any given area at a given time to comply with the Park District policy
