Special Presentation at February Meeting

Our February UROC meeting promises to be special. UROC's own Matt Steele will be giving us a presentation regarding his experience in the Ukraine as he and the rest of Team USA brought home 4 Gold Medals at the 2016 World Space Modeling Championship. This should be a great presentation, and one not to be missed. Attendance is free and you are welcome to bring friends. We really would like to have you there!

We meet in Room N1100 at the Salt Lake Government Building. Please sign in at the front desk upon arrival and note that food and drink are not permitted.

Our new officers for the 2017 flying year are:

  • Neal Baker - President
  • Bryan Mogensen - Vice President
  • Kim Neilsen - Secretary

Additionally we have had a change in our Tripoli Prefect. Effective in 2017 Jim Yehle will be the Prefect for the Tripoli Utah Prefecture.

The officers will be present at the upcoming Holiday Blast and will begin planning for the 2017 year immediately. 

Please let the 2016 officers know how much you have appreciated their hard work and diligence through the 2016 year, they did a great job!  Also, make sure to take a moment to introduce yourself to the new officers when you see them as we look forward to a great UROC 2017.

September Launch Cancelled

This is a status update for the upcoming September 17 Research Launch - Hazardous wildfire conditions have resulted from low fuel moistures and hot, dry weather. These conditions are expected to persist with extreme fire behavior possible. So far this season, the majority of fires have been human caused. It is the policy of the Bureau of Land Management to take all necessary actions to protect human life, the public lands and the resources and improvements thereon through the prevention of wildfires. The Frank Hunt Field (our launch site) is currently under a fire restriction status. As predicted, this restriction has cancelled our upcoming launch scheduled for September 17.
