UROC Launch Hotline is Back! Featured

Years ago the Utah Rocket Club shared a telephone messaging system with another hobby group. We used this phone number to update people on the status of upcoming launches and emergency, short notice cancellations. Unfortunately, that service was pulled by the donator and we have not had a hotline since. We do now! 

Effective immediately, you can call 801-880-8563 and receive up to the minute launch and event information for UROC events. This is especially important as we get into the regular flying season. There has been many times in year's past where a launch was cancelled due to poor weather.

We have only had the website and email to notify people of these cancellations. While these are a good option, they are not always practical to update from out at the launch site. This system will allow us to provide immediate status updates from virtually anywhere in the state.

The toughest part of using this system will be to get in the habit of calling the number BEFORE traveling out to a launch site.
