Fall high-power launch on the calendar

We are planning to hold a high-power launch on November 12 (weather permitting) at our NEW field near Addieville, IL. Since this is our first time visiting this field, please a) be appreciative of our hosts and respectful of their property, and b) be flexible and bear with us as we work out the details of launching from a new location.

Details will be announced (including directions to the site) closer to the launch date. If you have questions in the meantime, please direct them to admin@stlouisrocketry.com.
