Description

BALLS is the premier Experimental Rocket Launch in the Continental US. It spans 27 years however this year will be the 26th time it is held in the Black Rock Desert, North of Reno, near Gerlach, Nevada. 

BALLS brings dedicated rocketry enthusiasts devoted to the leading edge of non-professional rocketry activities together for the best demonstration of experimental motor design using today's best technologies, and probably the largest non-professional rockets seen anywhere.

BALLS 26 is a venue for projects that should NOT be flown publicly due to safety and legal restrictions. This may include, but is not limited to, LARGE rockets, complex staging or clustering, metal rockets, self designed and/or fabricated rocket motors and new technologies being developed or proven. Black Rock Dry Lake has always been the site of large rocket launches. Its wide open vastness is unprecedented for its high altitude recovery record. Through the years BALLS has grown into non-professional rocketry's show place of the best there is. The quality, craftsmanship, shear size, power and technology edge cannot be compared to any other launch anywhere. The best thing is the exchange of new thoughts and methods that are presented openly to anyone who asks. This launch will be primarily for Research Motors and/or Dangerous projects. Do NOT come to observe unless you are directly involved in flight activities, a Pre-Approved Experimental Project or invited by persons active in such ventures. Only Tripoli and NAR Members, with reason, will be permitted to be present out on Pad Areas and Away Cells.This will be strictly enforced.
