large powerful motors, ranging from J to P class motors.

powerful and thus potentially dangerous rockets. Non-members

rocket is reviewed by the Range Safety Officer (RSO) and if

or disprove a given rocket. Their decision is final. Flyers
may request the RSO or Board member to review the rocket during
preparation for flight to answer any flight safety questions.
Several pads will be available however it is advised that
those planning to participate bring their own ground support
equipment for specific applications.
