U.S. Model Rocket Sporting Code
(aka "Pink Book")

The U.S. Model Rocket Sporting Code is the rule book for NAR competition model rocketry. It is also known as the Pink Book because early editions had the covers printed on pink paper. The sporting code has gone through several major revisions in the past, the latest in 1979. Minor updates are made annually through the Rules Revision Process.

Be sure to check out the Competition Guide for more detailed information about competition. Each of the events has a separate section, with tips and plans for models.

The online version of the US Model Rocket Sporting Code is maintained by a volunteer from the NAR Contest Board. If you have comments or corrections to make to the contents, please do not contact the NAR webmaster — contact the maintainer instead.

The sporting code was last updated August 1, 2016.
