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.

Range Schedule:





  • Registration opens 9am
  • Launch Range operates 10a-6pm
  • 5pm BBQ Dinner
  • Dusk Night Launch


  • Registration opens 9am

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 club 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 home to the National Warplane Museum. You have a nearly a square mile of mowed grass recovery area surrounded by miles more of OPEN farmland, if you exceed that, MARS Club will do its best to recover your rocket for you. We have chainsaws and the biggest slingshot you’ve ever seen!

As always children 17 and under fly for FREE

USE of Sparky Motors: Due to the requirements of the HP Safety Code, the use of “sparky”  propellants is hoped for but cannot not be assured if dry conditions create a potential fire hazard. Therefore, consider having an alternate non-sparky motor planned should weather conditions in the weeks prior to the NSL create hazardous conditions.
