What Is An NAR Section?
NAR chartered Sections are locally-organized rocket clubs. Each Section has two or more modelers, at least one of whom is an adult.
Sections hold and participate in sport launches, competitions, conventions, and other local, regional, and national rocketry activities. In addition, Sections can apply to host the NAR National Competition Meet (NARAM), National Sport Launch (NSL), or Convention (NARCON) at their local site.
What Are The Benefits of Becoming a Section?
NAR Sections are covered by a five million dollar liability insurance policy to safeguard its assets and equipment. In addition, Sections can apply for insurance that covers the owners or operators of launch fields, meeting halls, and other activity locations. Unlike the NAR liability insurance offered to individual members, which insures only themselves, this optional insurance is available only to Sections and insures the property owner directly.
The NAR provides Section officers with guidance on how to organize and run a Section. The NAR Sport Services Committee offers help and direction to assist new Section officers in filing for FAA waivers, BATF Low Explosives User Permits, and other regulatory hurdles.
You may apply for a Section Grant to help with safety equipment, launch equipment, and publicity.
Your Section can compete for the coveted Rockwell Trophy, awarded annually for the most outstanding Section newsletter.
Who Can Join A Section?
Any NAR member is welcome to join an existing Section. You can get information about the Section nearest to you from the Section List.
