Sponsors are CCARC and FLARE Clubs. This launch is being set up as previous Thunder in the Desert, back when regionals were a thing. While all NRC events may be flown, the events for this contest are as follows: Open Spot Landing, Random Duration, 1/4A Streamer Duration, A Helicopter Duration, A Parachute Duration, 1/2A Rocket Glider Duration. This is a Tripoli Las Cruces Club launch where they are allowing us to have a NAR contest launch. Tripoli safety codes will apply. Porta-potties are on-site. There is likely to be a range fee to cover the cost of them. Current plan is to start setup at 8:00 AM Saturday and Sunday, with launching allowed soon after completion. Competition flights may be flown until 3:00 PM on Saturday and until 12:00 noon on Sunday.
