Our Pioneer '07 Contest will be held during our May Sport Launch on Saturday, May 19th. (weather permitting). The contest directors are hoping you enjoyed the events at last year's UFO event because they are the same for Pioneer '07. The contests include:

Additionally, Fred Williams (UROC Contest Director) is kicking around the possibility of an unofficial event to add to Pioneer. At the moment, he is considering Eggloft Spot Landing, an event that he hopes to have submitted as a NAR provisional event.

Some important notes:

  • Contest flying will be from 9:00 to 5:00 each day.
  • The Contest range will be to the right of the Sport Range.
  • Contest fee will be five dollars.
  • You must have a NAR membership to compete. (If you?d like, we can get you signed up on the field!)
  • Altitude tracking will be on Saturday only (weather permitting)

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! 

Special Update!

Pioneer '07 will be hosting a special event this year, "D" Engine Rocket Glider.  This event will not count towards NAR points, but prizes will be given for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place, donated by Rocket Dog Hobby.  Unlike Boost-Glider, the Rocket Glider cannot separate from the motor, it must come back gliding as one piece.  You can check on some plans for Rocket Gliders here.  If you have any questions, contact Bruce Bell at This email address is being protected from spambots.
