So. Cal. Rocket Assoc. Launch at Lucerne Dry Lake
Date(s) - 04/03/16
7:00 am - 12:00 pm
SCRA Launch Site at Lucerne Dry Lake
Latitude / Longitude:
Model Rocket launch in the treeless wide open high desert a short drive up and over the mountains from the Los Angeles Basin. It’s big, mostly empty & will accommodate launches up to the full NAR Model Rocket Safety Code. All motors must be CA State Fire Marshal classified as a “Model Rocket Motor”! This is a VERY desolate location, so you will need to bring water & food. The winds can reach high levels by mid-morning, so launching should begin as early as possible. We will plan on being there by 7am. Use of a road map is always advised when driving in the desert and odometers vary, so mileage is approximate. Take I15 north to Bear Valley Road/Cutoff. Go east 13 miles until you reach route 18. Continue east on route 18 another 11.3 miles and then turn left (north) on route 247 (also known as Barstow Road). Continue north on route 247 for 3.9 miles, then turn left (west) onto the dry lake on the well used dirt road. We’ll be out in the middle (approx. 1 mile). **No High Power Rockets.
Dates are subject to change or cancellation due to weather, other events or FAA emergencies.
