We are GO for ROCstock 4/7 – 4/9

Greetings everyone. 

ROCstock is a go.   The lakebed is in great condition.  Thanks to Vice President Mike Ostby for making the trip out to the lakebed to check the conditions first hand.  

Range setup will begin Thursday and will be open for launching Friday morning. Weather conditions will be cool with temperatures in the upper 60’s during the day and low 40’s overnight.  Campfires are permitted in above ground containers and you must have a California Campfire permit to have a one or use a propane stove outdoors. The permits are very easy to obtain and you can get one here https://www.readyforwildfire.org/permits/campfire-permit/. The BLM and fire department do come out and check so please get your permit as the fine is not worth the risk.

We are expecting to have the range open at approximately 8am each day with night flights from 8 – 10pm Friday and Saturday. Remember to bring your ROC membership card to launch for free and your NAR / TRIPOLI card to show certification level. New 2023 ROC membership cards will be available for pickup at Registration.  ROC will also be hosting a fun Easter egg hunt Sunday morning for everyone in attendance. 

Looking forward to a great launch and seeing everyone on the playa!

Gary Schneider 

ROC President
