This is a model rocket launch for MTMA/NAR members-only. Non-MTMA members who are NAR members are invited to participate and fly the NRC events.
The launch will be conducted in accordance with the NAR Model Rocket Safety Code ( https://www.nar.org/safety-information/model-rocket-safety-code/ ). G-impulse max. No high power.
In the event of poor flying conditions, the following Sunday will be the backup flying date. Stay tuned for last minute updates.
We fly until everyone has had enough, or 6:00 pm, whichever happens first.
Please park in the main parking lot. Do not drive out into the field. The MTMA NRC launch is to be run concurrently with our scheduled model rocket launch and has no separate schedule. This launch is an officially sanctioned event of the National Association of Rocketry. Anyone may participate, but only NAR members will have their flight performance entered on the National Score Board.

1/2 Parachute Duration
1/2A Streamer Duration

The event rules are found in the U.S. Model Rocket Sporting Code.
