The only outdoor flames allowed at ROCStock will be camp stoves using gas or liquid (and rockets, of course!). You will need a permit for those stoves. Please note that we will be checked, BLM has been diligent this year on permit compliance. They are actually doing it to protect us as they’re establishing a pattern of compliance for ROC which helps us with future permit renewals, etc…
Let’s all continue to be good citizens and obey the restrictions this launch.
To all ROCSTOCK attendees. The BLM has initiated temporary fire restrictions. We launch on BLM managed land and it is manditory that we comply with the rules. We risk the loss of our permit and/or the granting of the new permit in September if folks are not in compliance. We have already been in contact with the Barstow BLM office and they verified that the Lakebed falls within the area of the temporary restrictions and they do apply to us. Please read and understand the directive issed by the BLM.
NO OPEN FIRES ON THE LAKEBED, NOT EVEN IN RAISED PITS OR CONTAINERS.
SMOKING ONLY ALLOWED WITHIN CAMPERS AND RVs.
We are getting clarification of the need to obtain permits for camp stoves.
Thank you all for compling with these restrictions. Please understand that ROC has a good relationship with the BLM and it would be ashame for us to loose our permit over the actions of a few. Remember, these are temporary and will be lifted at the BLMs discretion sometime in the future.
We are working to finalize the layout for the range, and need to know if anyone needs the 1500 foot away pads.
Please let us know if your project has multiple (staged or clustered) motors totaling more than 5,120 Newton-Seconds.

ROC will be an exhibitor and have a table to promote hobby rocketry and our club. We are looking for ROC flyers interested in helping out at our table. The general plan is to have a couple of rockets representing model and high power, and other information about the hobby.
