ROC’s Safer at Home Rocket Contest (March 24 until ??)
The contest is to build a rocket from either scratch or kit bash a rocket and to see what range of motors it will fly on. The person who successfully launches and recovers a rocket with the widest range of motors is the overall winner.
You cannot use one already built.
To compete, you must fly it at the next ROC launch on the smallest and largest motor that you designed it for. It must be recovered and be able to fly again, just like a cert flight. You can also use it to cert as well. (A flight means that it has to clear the rod or rail)
Painting is optional.
There will be prizes for the person with smallest starting motor, the largest starting motor, and the largest end motor.
There will be prizes for the best shred as well, so push the limit of design.
The only modification allowed on the lake bed is to change motor adapters.
Recovery has to remain the same for all flights.
SIGN UP TODAY!!
I need your name, email and phone number.

Due to current conditions the Jan 11th regular scheduled monthly launch is canceled. The recent storm brought significant rain and blanketed Lucerne with snow. Unfortunately, the lakebed hadn’t even dryed up from the last storm.
Time to start digging into your build pile. We’ll see everyone once the lakebed drys up enough to launch.
