up. The majority of our members are adults, mostly those who
flew rockets as a kid and then rediscovered the hobby years later as an
adult, usually through their kids when they became curious about

happy to provide assistance to them. We simply ask that there
be an adult with them at all times.

the High Power Safety Code are strictly enforced and adhered to.

have your own. Even if you do not have your own rocket(s), if
you just think you want to see or learn more about what the hobby is
about, you are more than welcome. At most launches with kids
in attendance, the club will have a free drawing for a rocket kit or
two for the kids.
