ROCstock June 2021

Hello Everyone,

ROCstock 2021 is right around the corner, June 11-13. Range setup will begin around 1pm Thursday and launching will begin Friday morning. Night flights on Friday and Saturday, weather permitting of course. We are also one of 12 sites across the country hosting the TARC National Finals. There will be teams launching their rockets on Friday and on Sunday morning. The teams will have a dedicated prep area and pads for their flights but this will not affect the rest of the launch.

A few reminders for the launch……

We are currently under stage II fire restrictions. All campfires must be above ground and a Cal Fire permit MUST be obtained and in possession to have a campfire, use a camp stove, or have any open flame. Cal Fire does visit our launches and the fine is not worth it. These are very easy to obtain by watching a short video and answering a few questions on what you just watched. You can obtain the permit here -> Permits – Ready for Wildfire

Unfortunately, NO Drones at anytime or place during our events are allowed. “Drone” Policy has Changed to Prohibit ALL Radio Controlled Aircraft at ROC Launches

Porta Potties will be on-site Thursday afternoon along with hand wash stations. No dumpster will be on-site. Pack it in – Pack it out.

It will be warm to HOT with temps in the upper 80’s to upper 90’s so bring plenty of water and sports drinks to keep hydrated. Beer and soda is not water and does not keep you as hydrated.

AMW and Discount Rocketry are scheduled to be on-site.

We are still under CDC guidelines so please keep distancing in mind in locations such as registration, pad assignment and safety check areas.

We will have T-Shirts, hats, stickers and raffle tickets for sale. There will be two raffles, one for adults and one for kids. LOTS of prizes available!!

Looking forward to a great ROCstock and seeing everyone on the playa.
