2018 Member Picnic and H2O Launch!

Come join us for UROC's annual Summer Picnic! This event is for UROC members and their families. We will be providing hamburgers and drinks for you and your family. There is no charge to attend but we ask that you bring a side or dessert to share!  We have moved the event this year to a new venue (Liberty Park) at 6:30pm on Monday, July 9th. 

We will be playing some games (2nd Annual Bingo Game) and more. (PRIZES)

We know that it's hard holding out until HellFire to fly. We thought we'd try to quell that urge a bit by introducing UROC's first annual Summer Rocket competition! This is a competition for the best water propelled rocket flown at the picnic. There will be some mean competition and prizes to the winners!

Upcoming May Launch Looks Good

The high power sport launch scheduled for May 5 and 6 currently looks good. This is our Cinco DeMayo launch and it will take place at our "Frank Hunt Field" launch site. The set up will begin around 8:30am and we will hopefully be flying shortly thereafter. We can use help with the set up as always. Provided the weather continues to be good, we will have flying throughout Sunday morning as well. Flyers are welcome to camp out Saturday night at the launch site. Here are a couple of notes to be aware of for this launch:

Both Jim and Jed are planning on being there on Saturday and possibly Sunday as well, but you should contact them to make sure they will be.

If you are needing to purchase motors, our local motor Vendor Tim Boschert of DasRocket will be onsite for part of the day Saturday, not at all on Sunday. You should contact him if you have any specific motor needs. While we are talking about Das Rockets, in honor of Cinco De Mayo  they will be offering 10% off of all green propellant that they have in stock at the launch!

This launch will be held under the Tripoli Research rules. Also be aware that only members of UROC are allowed to participate in the launch. If you are not a member you can sign up online or at the launch. As always, we will need help running the launch, RSO, LCO, pad managers and lots of help setting up and tearing down the range. We do have a Porta Potty ordered for this launch. Set up is expected to begin around 8:00 am and we will fly in to the early afternoon or until the wind gets to be too strong and if the weather permits maybe start up some model rocketry in the evening. As always, we will need help with LCO/ RSO/ Pad Management and set up and tear down. Last launch there were 5 of us to clean the entire launch range up. It would be great to have some additional help this time. Based on attendance on both days we will evaluate the launch schedule as we progress through the remainder of this year.

Third time is the Charm?

This is our final make-up date for this first launch of the year! This launch will be held as a two-day event. We have permission from the BLM for overnight camping at the launch site. We invite members to camp out Saturday evening and take advantage of the great weather early on Sunday as well. This launch will be held under the Tripoli Research rules. Also be aware that only members of UROC are allowed to participate in the launch. If you are not a member you can sign up online or at the launch.

As always, we will need help running the launch, RSO, LCO, pad managers and lots of help setting up and tearing down the range. We do have a Porta Potty ordered for this launch.

Sunday morning should prove to be some excellent flying time. The range should be set up, ready to go long before the wind catches us.

If the weather conditions for the upcoming launch deteriorate or if the fire hazard becomes too high, we will try to notify everyone via our normal modes including the website, facebook, and twitter.

Spring Launch Postponed... Again...

Due to the expected poor weather on this upcoming weekend  UROC's Spring Launch will be rescheduled yet again. Current weather forecasts show that conditions at Frank Hunt Field will not be acceptable for a launch event this weekend (April 7/8) as a result, the Officers and Board Members of the Utah Rocket Club have decided to postpone the event again. 

We understand  how frustrating this is, and it is for the officers as well. Unfortunately, there are limiting factors involved with deciding to hold a launch and all these must be considered. The officers are evaluating upcoming dates for another attempt at a Spring Launch and will announce it here as soon as a decision has been made. Our tentative makeup date will be the following weekend (April 14/15) but we will post confirmation on this once we have recived the approvals required.

Hang in there!
