This is a public model rocket launch to be conducted in accordance with the NAR Model Rocket Safety Code ( https://www.nar.org/safety-information/model-rocket-safety-code/) and MTMA launch rules and procedures.  Anyone is invited to attend.  This is not a High Power launch.

  • There is a $5 fee per adult non-member.  Children and young people of school age fly for free.
  • Non-members are limited to 10 N-s impulse maximum (C motor), no staging, and no clusters. 
  • All models are subject to a safety check prior to launch.
  • Flight cards are required for each launch.

Launch window:  Launch starts at 10:00 am.  Please arrive earlier rather than later. We will fly until 5:00 pm, or until everyone has had enough and goes home. We might even stay later.  If you arrive later in the day, you may find that we have already flown and packed up.  In the event of poor flying conditions, the event will be canceled.  There will be no planned rain date.  Monitor our message board at https://mtma.groups.io/g/public/topics for updates.

NRC Info:  This happens to be the first day of the 2022-2023 National Rocketry Competition event.  You can fly all NRC events, but you need to bring your own eggs and altimeters.  Eggs and altimeters will be checked by the Contest Director. 

Safety info:  Leave your shorts and sandals at home.  Be prepared for the outdoors.  You may be exposed to sun, heat, ticks, abrasive vegetation, and a lot of walking.  Plenty of water, a snack, light-colored clothing, long pants, and sturdy shoes/boots are highly recommended.
