Fred William's preps a rocket for competition.UROC's Fall Open "UFO" will be held during UROC's scheduled sport launch on October 4, 2008 and will be a one day contest.  Turn in for Sport Scale will be at 11:00AM.  In the event of weather, a decision will be made by 11:00AM as to the next step on the contest.

We need at least 10 participants to make this a regional.  Entry fee is $5.00.  You must be a NAR member to participate.  If you are not a NAR member we can sign you up at the contest. If you have never tried NAR competition, here are some suggestions in order to get you started:

Get onto the NAR website and look up the US Model Rocket Sporting Code, also known as the Pink Book. This is where you will find the rules for all the events. Look into the rules carefully and build around them.

Have a notebook with you and take notes on your own flights and your competitors strategies and tactics. (Model rocket competitors don't keep secrets. They will be quite open to your questions!).

And of course, always remember to have fun!

Events for this year's UFO include:
