Buder Park model rocket launch – Saturday May 26

Our next model rocket launch is scheduled for this coming Saturday, May 26th at Buder Park. The weather forecast calls for very light winds and a high temperature of 90, so it should be a good day for flying! Please come prepared with sunscreen and a way to stay hydrated.

Setup time will be 9:00 am, with the goal of having the range open by 9:30. We will fly rockets for as long as people are there with rockets to fly, but as always, the length of the event depends on how many people attend. The Civil Air Patrol cadets from Scott AFB are planning to join us again, so we should have a good turnout!

As previously announced by John Buckley, this launch will be sanctioned as a NAR NRC (National Rocketry Competition) launch. Link to official NRC launch information. If you have any questions about the competition aspect of the launch, please contact John at jbuckley1996@gmail.com. Sport flyers (non-competition flyers) are welcome at the launch as always.

If you have any other questions, please email me at admin@stlouisrocketry.com.
