2020 special information

Fall Fire 2020 has been postponed until October 31st.

Fall Fire will be a little different this year as we will be complying with various levels of regulations as well as doing our best to reduce the spread of COVID-19. I know that some of these are not convenient or preferred but I ask that everyone be compliant and respectful while on-site.

ALL attendees will have to preregister prior to the launch. Preregistration will open October 5th and will be limited to the first 200 requests. To preregister please email me, bradvwall@gmail.com , the First and Last name, Address, Email Address, and Phone number of each person that will be on-site. I will respond with a Participant ID for each. I will securely store this information until 45 days after the launch and then delete.

  • No Concession stand this year. All attendees are responsible to bring their own food and drink.
  • Preregistration required. Registration fee can be paid with an email money transfer to myself or cash on-site. Please bring Exact Change for registration fee.
  • Physical Distancing, please maintain a 2 meter distance between yourself and other participants and officials who are not part of your day to day contacts.
  • Please wear a mask when in all common areas such as porta-potty, RI and launch tables, RI line, launch pads, and the main spectator viewing line.
  • All attendees should bring their own supply of disinfectant, masks, and gloves.
  • Rocket inspections will be done visually, with the RI requesting the flier to handle the rocket and demonstrate whatever is needed.
