December 14 Launch is Canceled!

Due to recent precipitation, and some snow still present, the lakebed is not expected to be safe to drive on by the December launch.
The board has decided to cancel the December launch, and we will be monitoring conditions for the January launch.

Reminder: Membership/Certification Cards Required

To fly high power you need to be a current member of NAR or Tripoli. The expected evidence of certification and current membership is a current membership card for either NAR or Tripoli.

If your membership in NAR or Tripoli lapses, then your certification and insurance also lapse. For Tripoli members if your membership has been expired for more than a year you must completely re-certify after renewing your membership.

Your ROC membership card is your evidence that you do not need to pay daily launch fees. While membership may be looked up online, this delays the registration process. Please bring your current membership card to all ROC events.

Current Excutive Members: no fee for 2020

It’s been a tough year for flying! Much like our east-coast friends, we spent the fall, winter, and spring building rockets instead of flying them due to unstable weather. As a way of saying “Thanks” to all of our Executive Members, ROC is providing FREE Executive Memberships for 2020 to all of our existing Executive Members.

It’s simple, if you are a current, paid Executive Member at the end of this year, December 31st, 2019, then you’ll automatically get 2020 for free! That’s $60 you can spend on rocket gear, motors, or whatever you want!

Detailed Rules:
1. If you paid for a 2019 Membership already, including those that paid in the last three months of 2018, you will automatically be renewed for 2020. There’s nothing to do. To check your current membership status, log-in at: https://roc.wildapricot.org/ or ask at registration.

2. If you join as an Executive member ($60) between now and December 31, 2019, you will receive all of 2020 for free. Join here: https://roc.wildapricot.org/

3. Family membership policy remains unaffected.
4. Non-member fees remain unaffected.
5. Pre-registered Youth Group fees remain unaffected.
