All launches require volunteers as does this one. Please take a look at the schedule and e-mail me with the shift of your choice.

Please note that there will not be a concession stand this year. Everyone will be responsible to bring their own food and drinks.

Anticipated ceiling for the launch is 20,000' AGL. Pads available for rockets with motor sizes A - M. Hybrid GSE will be available for use. If you are planning to fly a rocket with a motor larger then L sized or heavier then 20 lbs, please contact me at least 2 weeks prior to launch to ensure that we can accommodate your project.

The use of "sparky" type motors will be decided by the RSO on site. Please have alternate motors available to fly instead, just in case.

Fall Fire 2021 - Additional Information

Fall Fire will be a little different again 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.

  • No Concession stand this year. All attendees are responsible to bring their own food and drink.
  • Physical Distancing recommended. Please maintain a 2 meter distance between yourself and other participants and officials who are not part of your day to day contacts.
  • Masking recommended when in all common areas such as porta-potty, RI and launch tables, RI line, launch pads, and the main spectator viewing line.
  • Rocket inspections will be done visually, with the RI requesting the flier to handle the rocket and demonstrate whatever is needed.
  • All attendees should bring their own supply of disinfectant, masks, and gloves.
