Geneseo New York Memorial Day 2018

In May, downwind crops are very low or just recently planted.  No lost rockets in the corn or beans!  This is the must attend event at the start of the flying season-  recently cut grass flying field, easy recovery, and convenient to civilization in Geneseo or Rochester.

Make your plans to attend the National Sport Launch. As always this launch will provide the unique experience that only MARS provides. Friendly rocketeers, huge mowed field, WWII warbirds in the air and on the ground and a great time for all.

MARS is a Family Friendly relaxed launch where micro-max’s and N motored monsters share the field. Rocket maniacs and families with kids are welcome at MARS. There is really no rocket event quite like it in this regard.  Our organization will have you on the pad as quickly and efficiently as possible.  This is the event to attend if you want to fly fly fly!

The field is a WWII era grass airfield which is now home to the National Warplane Museum. You have a 1 mile x 1 mile mowed grass recovery area and if you exceed that the staff at NYPOWER will do its best to recover your rocket for you. We have chainsaws and the biggest slingshot you’ve ever seen!
