Board Of Director Election

Only 16 days remaining! If you’ve ever wondered about the “behind the scenes” of your club, wanted to become more involved in club decision making, simply want to “pay it forward” or just want to learn more about rocketry then consider self-nominating for a seat on the ROC Board of Directors.
There are three full term (3-year) and one 2-year term Director seats up for election this year. David Erbas-White has once again volunteered to collect the nominations. Andrew Wimmer is this year’s Election Chairman. Any adult ROC member in good standing can self-nominate by writing a Statement of Self-Nomination.  Make sure to include a photo. Please send to: bigbearrockets@cox.net . The deadline for self-nomination is August 31st, 2018 at 11:59 PM.  Ballots will be cast electronically via the Wild Apricot Membership Portal during Sept and Oct.  Results of the election will be announced during the Annual Members Meeting November 10th, 2018 at ROCstock. If elected, your annual club fees are waived.
Please consider running for a Board of Director seat. It’s a great way to become more involved and have fun while making a difference in the hobby we all love so much!

August Launch Announcment

Temps are forecast to be anywhere from the high 90’s to over 100° next Saturday.  We plan to open the range at 7 AM and fly until 11 AM.  Possibly noon depending on how hot it gets.  If you plan to launch a special project or something that requires a lot of prep time please be ready to fly between the hours of 7 – 11.  The trailer will be on the lakebed by 6:15 AM and with the help of volunteers we should be set up by 7.  Reminder to bring and drink plenty of fluids and stay in the shade as much as possible.
