Jan 11th Launch Cancelled

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.

ROC President

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.
