Fall Fire 2023

High Power Rocket Launch - Fall Fire 2023

The Saskatoon Rocketry Society is planning a fall High Power Rocket launch. The launch will be held North of Kitscoty, AB on October 14th 2023 from 08:00 - 17:00. The weather backup dates are October 15th, 28th, and 29th . We are expecting a ceiling of 20,000' AGL. The launch is open to the public and everyone is welcome to attend. There will be flights with rocket motors sized A up to maybe a M! We hope that you will join us for this exciting event.

Everyone wishing to fly rockets must have a valid CAR-ACF membership. CAR-ACF insurance will be in effect for CAR-ACF members flying at this event.  Membership info available at Canadian Association of Rocketry .
Registration: Fliers must register to fly.

  • Juniors (under 18) flying High Power - $20.00
  • Seniors (over 18) flying Models only - $10.00
  • Seniors (over 18) flying High Power - $25.00

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.
