I will, unfortunately, be unable to attend as our daughter and SIL are having an open house at their new home on that day.  Have fun everyone!

This model rocket launch will be conducted in accordance with the NAR Model Rocket Safety Code ( ) and MTMA launch procedures.  This is not an HPR launch.

Anyone is invited to attend.  Non-MTMA members are limited to 10 N-s impulse maximum (C motor), no staging, and no clusters.

  • Please 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.
  • Angling launch rods toward the road will not be allowed.  We will not risk dropping rockets on our neighbors across the street for any reason.  If drift is a concern, use a smaller motor.  Fly the field.
  • Plan on walking through the field to recover your rockets - shorts and sandals are NOT recommended. Watch for ticks!
  • Wear sunscreen and bring water.
  • Please practice six-foot social distancing.  Only 10 people are allowed under the pavillion at one time.   Face coverings are encouraged, but not required.
